WittKieffer has been retained to conduct the search for the Director of Information Security at Cottage Health (Santa Barbara, CA). This is an exceptional opportunity to join a vibrant and financially strong community health system with a compelling mission and vision.
With three hospitals and a medical staff of more than 600 physicians, Cottage Health provides care across a number of specialties for patients to stay close to home. Reporting directly to the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), the Director will provide operational leadership across the health system at a time when the information security group is undergoing a major transformation. The Director is a key leadership role on the Chief Information Officer's IT leadership team. Information security has significant support from the C-Suite, Board of Directors and clinical leadership. The Director will be an active and visible leader at all levels of the health system and will partner extensively with leaders across security, compliance, operations and clinical teams in order to obtain their goals.
While all information security leaders are welcome to apply, the ideal candidate will be a highly technical operations leader with a proven track-record in successfully managing information security in a complex health system or similar health-related organization. The ability to work in a consensus driven organization and translate complex technical information into layman’s terms is essential. The Director must be politically savvy, navigate across a complex organization and deliver results.
All nominations and applications will be handled with the utmost professional courtesy and confidentiality. Applications, expressions of interest, and nominations are welcome.
