Expel Appoints Former NHL CISO to Top Security Post

Expel, a managed detection and response (MDR) provider, announced the addition of Greg Notch to the company’s leadership team as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

Most recently, Notch led cybersecurity operations at the National Hockey League (NHL). As Expel’s CISO, Notch will be responsible for ensuring the security of Expel’s systems, as well as keeping customers educated on the threat landscape and the latest techniques for mitigating risk in their environments.

“Expel has an extraordinary track record of being a great security partner for their customers, and their intentional and open approach to cybersecurity and employee culture ensure this continues as the company grows,” said Notch. “Despite challenges presented by the pandemic and an unprecedented number of cyber-attacks over the past few years, I’ve watched as Expel scaled to exceed expectations for its customers and partners — a testament to the incredible team they’ve assembled. I’m going to have a blast working with this talented yet fun, irreverent crew.”

Notch brings more than 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.

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.
