Dr. Friedman is an internationally renowned academic adult and pediatric neuro-oncologist who helps to lead The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University. He is the author of more than 500 peer reviewed articles, reviews, and book chapters and has presented extensively at both international and national meetings.

As a committed educator Dr. Friedman is a member of the Executive and Super Executive Committees of Duke Medical School, which are responsible for the recruitment, screening and selection of medical students.

He is a member of the American Society of Clinical Investigation.
L. Kevin Kelly, Halo Privacy CEO, said, "We are truly honored to have Henry on our Board of Advisors. He is one of the most well connected, well respected people that I know. We see significant opportunity to offer Halo's privacy services to the medical community, and we are going to work closely with him to calibrate Halo's strategy to do so. Beyond the medical community, though, Henry operates in highly sophisticated business environments, so we plan to draw on his experience to inform our sales strategy and technology pipeline. On top of all of that, Henry is a longtime friend, and I'm thrilled to be working closely with him again."
Dr. Friedman added, "A lot of what I've seen in the secure communications marketplace is average technology with really clever marketing. Halo, on the other hand, operates under the assumption that all networks are owned and any adversary could be tier 1, so an average solution simply isn't enough. Where other companies try to force their product fit every customer, Halo sees privacy as a partnership. I love that Halo takes the time to provide each client with customized training and tradecraft paired with technology drawn from selection of both proprietary and COTS solutions. They cap it all off with the best tech support you could imagine. With that kind of offering, I think there is a lot this company can do and I'm proud to be a part of the team."
