Cybersecurity threats in healthcare can put patient safety at risk, shut off access to records, and take down medical devices. Recent incidents have shown that healthcare organizations, whether small private practices or large provider networks, are under constant attack from hackers, phishers, and other cyber criminals and the impact can be enormous. If infected by ransomware, you may be forced to pay tens of thousands of dollars to get your data back. The average cost for healthcare organizations per record lost or stolen in a breach is $380, and 65% of patients say they would steer away from companies whose records have been compromised.
However, most organizations lack the technology or personnel to even detect these emerging cybersecurity threats. Studies show the average time between a data breach and discovery is 205 days – that’s over 7 months! Simply implementing security tools such as firewalls or anti-virus isn’t enough.
This is even more true for healthcare organizations that fall under HITECH, HIPAA, and MU regulations. Compliance is absolutely critical to avoid fines or worse consequences.
Today’s threats and compliance guidelines require healthcare organizations of all sizes to collect, correlate, and analyze security information from all IT systems to enable rapid detection and remediation.
Our comprehensive cybersecurity monitoring and compliance solution solves this need by providing continuous monitoring of your entire network to detect and respond to hidden cybersecurity threats.
Detect hidden threats on your network like malware, dangerous website traffic, and malicious user activity before they result in an infection or data breach.
Alerts can be routed directly to your support team to immediately respond and stop cybersecurity threats.
For healthcare organizations, continuous monitoring of your security logs is required by HIPAA/HITECH compliance regulations. Our service meets these regulations as well as GLBA, PCIDSS,COBIT, ISO, NIST, and others for ongoing monitoring and daily reviews.
