New Chief Information Security Officer Named at Lifelines Neuro
Rafael Garrido joins Lifelines Neuro as the new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) after an expansive career in the software engineering and IT security industry. This new role comes as Lifelines Neuro is rapidly expanding its customer base with its Rendr Platform subscription, cloud-enabled EEG software that monitors brainwaves for diagnosis of epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
Most recently, Garrido served in roles at Capital One as Director, Software Engineering and Director, Information Security Office, Cloud Security Consulting. He led teams to develop innovative ideas with new high-quality, highly scalable cloud-based software in mind, as well as providing a full range of security consulting services to support enterprise and business initiatives. Prior to that, Garrido was Director, Information Security, and Senior Cloud Security Architect at GE Appliances.
“We are pleased to welcome someone with Rafael’s extensive credentials and expertise to the Lifelines Neuro team,” says Mark Jackson, President and COO of Lifelines Neuro. “As we grow and scale our Rendr Platform, we are breaking down the traditional walls where patients receive care, liberating EEG and enabling physicians to access data from multiple devices located anywhere, which makes our IT infrastructure and security of paramount importance.”
Garrido was recruited by former GE colleague Byron Guernsey, Chief Information Officer at Lifelines Neuro. “I know the value Rafael places on integrity and what he’s accomplished. He will continue to ensure our IT security infrastructure is aligned and ready for market growth in the hospital sector,” says Guernsey. Garrido was born in Argentina and grew up in the Northeast U.S. and earned a B.S. in Management Information Systems from Central Connecticut State University and now lives in Richmond, VA.
Garrido’s parents have small businesses in non-medical elder care that he’s helped build through the years. ”Seeing them provide help with companionship, grocery shopping, and caring for people with Alzheimer’s demonstrated the meaningfulness of work, rather than working in a void for a larger corporation," says Garrido. “Putting my skills to use at Lifelines Neuro to help expand care and access to people with epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and to work with pharmaceutical companies to validate and test treatments is an incredible opportunity. Helping others add value, and being valued in return, is why I’m here.”
Lifelines Neuro’s EEG Anywhere Subscription features Trackit EEG systems married to the Rendr Platform for one fixed monthly fee, with unlimited seat licenses. It enables EEG service providers, hospitals, and clinics to scale with predictable monthly billing for stability and no capital equipment investment.
Lifelines Neuro creates the most effective and usable EEG devices on the planet. A leader in the U.S. in-home EEG market, Lifelines Neuro is liberating EEG by making it accessible, mobile, and efficient to benefit patients around the globe. Rendr Platform cloud EEG software connects patients to physicians 24/7/365, all the time, in real-time, to increase access to care.
