Denver-based Catholic Health Initiatives, which operates 73 hospitals and 40 long-term and assisted-living facilities in 18 states, has named Sheryl Rose as its first chief information security officer.

The position was created to respond to increased cyber threats, regulatory compliance requirements and a reduced tolerance for service disruptions, according to the organization. Rose will lead development and implementation of an enterprise information security plan.

Rose most recently served for nearly a decade as vice president of global security operations and disaster recovery at First Data Corp. in Atlanta. She led a team of 80 security professionals at 12 sites. She also was a senior associate in the Denver office of consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

At Catholic Health Initiatives, Rose will report to Michael O'Rourke, senior vice president and CIO.
