Healthcare Cyber Security

Healthcare security priorities shift to protecting medical devices for 2020.

We have seen unprotected devices bring down hospitals and medical offices of all sizes. This could impact critical patient care. Our healthcare cybersecurity consultants assist with the strategy and delivery of secure medical equipment.

Some of the areas where we assist healthcare providers:

  • Medical Device Penetration Testing
  • Network Segmentation for Medical Equipment
  • Device Inventory and Risk Analysis
  • Continuous Vulnerability Detection and Response
  • Continuous Incident Monitoring and Response
  • Medical Device Risk Assessments
  • Vendor Risk Management and Reviews
  • Data Inventory

Some of the areas where we assist health insurance providers:

  • Data Inventory and Risk Analysis
  • HIPAA Penetration Testing Services
  • Vendor Risk Management and Reviews
  • HITRUST Certification
  • Continuous Incident Monitoring and Response

Protecting patient data is a group effort. We help bridge the gap.

Healthcare cyber security has changed dramatically in the last ten years with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices increasing on the medical network. IoT technologies are rapidly becoming part of the high-tech medical arena. Medical devices are now connected to the network in order to help doctors, nurses, and support teams provide critical care services for patients. The new interconnected device types are not always managed in the same way as traditional IT systems. They are often left unpatched and vulnerable to attack. This uncontrolled environment leaves hospitals and other medical service providers accepting great levels of risk in order to improve services.

At Cyber Security Services, we understand this risk. We help healthcare organizations succeed by reducing that risk by improving the security of network connected devices. This includes everything from medical equipment to security devices. We take a proactive approach to getting an accurate inventory and applying a risk assessment model to determine areas that should be prioritized for improved security controls.

There were 339 healthcare organizations breached in 2017 alone. It is important to partner with an organization that understands the unique risks facing healthcare today. Cyber Security Services has been helping some of the largest hospitals in the United States solve some of those challenges.
