FastTrack, a leading full-service technology platform in the Life & Disability insurance vertical, has announced Pinny Tam as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

We are rapidly approaching HITRUST Certification status, and I am excited about helping my new Team Members complete the process," said Pinny Tam, CISO.  


Strengthening FastTrack’s security management

FastTrack offers a suite of products and services to help insurers to triage and fully understand their risk management options, drives process automation, and makes possible comprehensive data collection and analysis to establish best practices for the Life & Disability administration processes. 

"IT risk management, inclusive of data security and proprietary information protection, continues to be a top priority for FastTrack," said Mark Calveric, CIO of FastTrack. "Pinny's strong track record of over 20 years in information security, IT risk management, IT audits, and IT compliance leadership experience, provides a rock-solid foundation that will most-certainly strengthen the information security management programme that FastTrack has built to protect current and future customer data."

The company’s primary goal is to help claims professionals and underwriters make consistent, repeatable, clear, objective, and defensible benefit and employability determinations.
