IAHSS President Jeff Young Named to Security Magazine’s “Most Influential People in Security”

The International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS) is pleased to
announce that current IAHSS President Jeff Young has been named one of “The Most Influential
People In Security” for 2016 by Security magazine. Young’s inclusion on the list is an honor
bestowed upon top security executives and leaders who positively impact the security industry,
their organization, their colleagues and peers, as well as the national and global security

“Security Magazine is the security industry’s most widely recognized and esteemed publication,
but what makes this recognition most special is that my staff nominated me,” Young said.
Security magazine chose The Most Influential based upon the leadership qualities and overall
positive impact that their projects, programs, or departments have had upon their shareholders,
organizations, colleagues and the general public.

Young is one of eight corporate security executives receiving this special acknowledgment.
Young’s inclusion is especially noteworthy given that he is the only leader representing the
healthcare field. “I have always held healthcare security as the most dynamic type of security,”
Young said. “When sitting around a table with colleagues from different verticals I can almost
always say, ‘We do that, too.’”

Young currently leads one of the largest scope healthcare protection programs in North America
as the Executive Director of Integrated Protection Services for Fraser Health Authority’s Lower
Mainland Health. Young provides program strategy and leadership for a hybrid workforce of
health authority employed management and unionized staff along with a large contingent of
front-line outsourced staff. Combined, Young oversees more than 550 staff members and an
overall operating budget in excess of $35 million. Young was recognized by Security Magazine
in 2015, 2014 & 2013 as one of the “Top 500 Security Leaders” worldwide.
