RALEIGH, NC -- July 18, 2019 –- Cybersecurity industry expert Keith Mattox has chosen Raleigh as the ideal location to launch his new consulting firm, Clinical Security LLC. Mattox, who is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, a Project Management Professional, and holds a Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge, plans to take advantage of the city’s status as an epicenter for start-up companies, many who are looking for data and cybersecurity.
Based in HQ Raleigh, Mattox leads and operates a four-person team helping such clients as Global Data Consortium (GDC), and Real Magic, founded by ShareFile founder Jesse Lipson.
Mattox is a 20-year security veteran having worked at Computer Task Group (CTG) in Buffalo as the product manager for risk profile manager, a cloud-based vendor risk management solution, and Chief Security Officer at a Houston Hospital System. Before this, he served as head of information security at RBC Bank. After CTG, he was the Senior Compliance Office at Hewlett Packard, and at Raleigh-based Citrix where he led the HIPAA compliance for Citrix ShareFile, Image 32 (Diacom viewer), ShareConnect, and Podio. Most recently, Keith led the efforts for SOC 2 for Citrix Workspace, which included all cloud versions of Citrix products.
Today, Clinical Security LLC is the premier partner for Loptr LLC, an award-winning information security firm in East Aurora, New York. Mattox works with Loptr’s leadership team in building Virtual Security Team (VST) engagements, leads security and compliance services tailored to meet the specific needs of assessments for various clients in the southeast, and will help establish Virtual Security Center, Lowkey LLC’s security software.
Mattox started Clinical Security because he believes the Raleigh market, home to an aggressively growing tech and consumer start-up scene, is ripe for experienced cybersecurity professionals. “Most companies are unprepared for a cyberattack, and the costs associated with a hack or other cybercrime can devastate a business,” said Mattox. “Educating start-ups and other Raleigh-Durham based companies on cyber threats and how they are managed is why Clinical Security and Loptr joined forces.”
A Woodbury, Connecticut native, Keith studied Business Management at the University of Connecticut, and Industrial Management and Computer Science at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He resides in Cary, and when not working, can be found biking or running the trails around North Carolina, or checking out Raleigh’s latest music and restaurant scene.
