Greg Notch, former Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at the National Hockey League (NHL), has been named the new CISO at Expel, a managed detection and response (MDR) provider.

In his CISO role, Notch will be responsible for ensuring the security of the organization's systems, as well as keeping users educated on the threat landscape and latest techniques for mitigating risk in their environments.

Notch brings over 20 years of experience in technology and information security, helping companies large and small through all three dot-com booms — building high-performing engineering teams and improving their technology, process and security. In his previous role, Notch spent 15 years as the CISO and Senior Vice President of Technology at the NHL. In addition to establishing their information security program, he led the league's technology strategy, digital transformation and cloud initiatives.

Prior to the NHL, Notch worked on infrastructure, security and software systems for Apple, Yahoo Search, eMusic and several other New York based technology startups.
