Stop the Cyber Bleeding Author’s Certification from the National Association of Corporate Directors Further Demonstrates Commitment to Elevating Board Leadership

Nashville, TN (October 17, 2022) – Clearwater today announced that the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) recently recognized Bob Chaput, company Founder and Executive Chairman, as NACD Directorship Certified®. Directors who earn this designation signal to boards, investors, and other stakeholders that they are keeping on top of the emerging issues and trends impacting financial performance, disrupting business models, and changing the competitive landscape.

The NACD Directorship Certification program®, the nation’s premier certification for board directors, provides a tangible assessment of a director’s understanding of the essential knowledge required to lead in today’s boardrooms. Certification facilitates continuous learning and allows directors to showcase their governance knowledge to the companies they serve and other stakeholders in the broader governance community.

“I am honored to join the distinguished and diverse group of NACD Certified Directors who are committed to advancing the highest standards of boardroom excellence,” said Bob Chaput, NACD.DC. “The information I’ve learned and demonstrated via NACD’s certification program, especially around strategy development, risk management, and leadership development are key assets to the companies I serve, as well as to my professional growth as a director.”

Chaput is the author of “Stop The Cyber Bleeding: What Healthcare Executives and Board Members Must Know About Enterprise Cyber Risk Management (ECRM)”, which has become a go-to resource for healthcare leaders seeking to better understand how to help their organizations respond to growing cyber risk. As a leading authority and expert witness on HIPAA compliance and enterprise cyber risk management, Chaput has assisted dozens of healthcare organizations and their business partners, including Fortune 100 organizations, improve their risk posture. Chaput’s degrees include an M.A. in Mathematics from Clark University and a B.A. in Mathematics from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. In addition to the NACD.DC Directorship Certification®, Chaput holds numerous certifications in privacy, security, and cyber risk management.

“NACD Certified Directors demonstrate their keen awareness that directorship is a profession that, like all professions, requires continuous learning,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD’s CEO. “Bob Chaput, NACD.DC is leading the way in achieving and maintaining the highest credential available to directors in the United States.”
