Justin Armstrong is responsible for the security of MEDITECH applications and platforms, including coordinating critical updates to MEDITECH software and communicating with customers when questions arise about MEDITECH’s security stance. Justin stays up to date on evolving security standards and regulations, best practices, threats, and software vulnerabilities by remaining active in the security community inside and outside of MEDITECH. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and a proud member of the FBI’s InfraGard program as well as the Cyber Health Working Group (CHWG), (ISC)2, ISSA, OWASP, EHRA Privacy and Security Workgroup, and the H-ISAC.

He obtained his Masters in Information Security Leadership at Brandeis University. During his 20 years at MEDITECH, he has worked on all current MEDITECH platforms (including the newest web products) and has particular experience in Nursing, Ambulatory, e-Prescribing, and Physician products. Justin also spent many years training MEDITECH developers on a range of topics including Coding Standards, Peer Review, Maintainable Code, Technical Specifications, Security, and more.  He traces his interest in security back to the fourth grade when he found a copy of “The Codebreakers” in the school library.
