Kirk Jones Hired as FedPoint's Director of Information Risk Management and Information Security Officer
Portsmouth, NH (June 20, 2023)—Federal insurance and benefits administrator FedPoint® welcomes Kirk Jones to the organization as its new Director of Information Risk Management and Information Security Officer.
Jones joins the FedPoint team with more than 20 years in information risk management and information security, having most recently headed the cybersecurity, privacy, and information technology compliance functions for Workgrid Software in Dover. His insurance and healthcare industry-specific work experience also includes directing cybersecurity and risk management programs at Liberty Mutual in Portsmouth, Steward Health Care, and Mass General Brigham in Boston.
Jones holds a master's degree in informatics from Northeastern University with a specialization in information security management, as well as a bachelor of science degree in management information systems, and multiple professional certifications in information security, risk management and privacy.
"I look forward to helping FedPoint build on its excellent record in information security and risk management," said Jones. "New challenges in this area are always emerging, and we will continue to take the necessary steps to minimize risk across channels and environments."
Located on Pease International Tradeport, FedPoint has been administering large federal and military benefits contracts for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) since 2002. Jones succeeds outgoing director Ken Kasprzak, who will retire in late July. Under Kasprzak's direction over the past decade, FedPoint has strengthened its security posture and remained compliant with the strict federal requirements governed by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), enabling the company to renew its Authority to Operate with OPM three times during that span.
"Kirk and Ken are great examples of the strong leadership in risk management that FedPoint brings to its clients," said Paul Forte, CEO of FedPoint. "Given the ongoing challenges associated with protecting data, we are fortunate to have Kirk to help guide us and continue the progress Ken and his team have made over the past decade."

Serving the federal civilian and uniformed services markets, FedPoint administers both the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program and BENEFEDS under the oversight of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
