TOKYO, September 20, 2018 – Genesis Healthcare Co. – a pioneer in genetic testing and research in Japan – announced the appointment of Michael Goodman as its new Chief Security and Technology Officer (CSTO).

Michael’s career path spans every aspect of the information security lifecycle, from software development, systems engineering, incident response, vulnerability assessment, forensics, and threat intelligence to staffing, policy, processes, procedures, and management.

Michael has experience in leading enterprise cybersecurity efforts for numerous US federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice. He has experience in designing and enhancing various Security Operations Centers (SOCs) – for US Customs and Border Protection, US Secret Service, and the US Navy, to name a few.
