On the untimely passing of Chris Apgar, Founder of Apgar & Associates

Chris Apgar passes away

We at Apgar & Associates, LLC, are deeply saddened to share that Chris Apgar passed away unexpectedly this past weekend. As you may know, Chris founded Apgar & Associates over a decade ago. Chris and I have been life and business partners for years, helping hundreds of clients navigate complex information security and privacy issues. I am committed to continuing this mission as part of his legacy.

Chris has touched many lives in his career, turning clients and colleagues into friends with his warm, collaborative style. Always teaching and encouraging, he’s educated peers, fellow consultants, healthcare providers and vendors, and security professionals. Quite simply, he’s served as an example of excellence in his many consultative and volunteer roles.

Once such plans are made, our family will share information about the memorial arrangements to take place after the first of the year. In the meantime, please know that we appreciate your sympathy and support. I will be in contact with current clients individually once the situation calms as I move forward in the role of principal at Apgar & Associates, LLC. You may contact me via the website here with any messages.
