SureVigil® (Remote and Continuous monitoring of Data Exchange Uptime
and Performance), ManageSecure® (Security Resource Management System).
Dr.Kailar received his doctoral degree in Computer Engineering from University
of Maryland at College Park. As part of his doctoral dissertation, he developed
methods and tools to analyze vulnerabilities in cryptographic protocols for
the Internet. Dr.Kailar is also Certified Vendor Security Analyst by the National
Prior to BNETAL, he has served as a researcher at IBM Federal Systems division,
and as a senior security analyst/software designer at Hewlett Packard's Internet
and Systems Security Lab and SecureWare. Dr.Kailar represented IBM, Hewlett-Packard,

TCSEC B1/CMW level and at the European ITSEC E3 level.
Dr.Kailar was the security architect of the New York e-Health Collaborative’s
Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) Phase II Trial Implementation,
and the security architect on the NwHIN Phase I prototype that was implemented
across three Health Information Exchanges (HIEs): Massachusetts, Indiana and
Mendocino, CA. He is a senior security analyst and consultant to the US Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on their Public Health Information
Network (PHIN) related projects. He provided subject matter expertise to the
security architecture, design and development, and security certification and
accreditation of CDC’s PHIN Messaging System. He consults on a cloud
security infrastructure project at a big-4 firm.
At the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH)'s CORE initiative, he
serves as a senior consultant to the CORE Connectivity and Security subgroup. He has represented
CDC on the OASIS ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee and represents
