Healthcare Cybersecurity Challenges
Healthcare is a primary target for cyber breaches. Why? The value of a medical record is exponentially higher than a credit card on the black market. Other factors create cybersecurity challenges in healthcare such as antiquated technology, large vendor networks and the necessity to share patient information. Protecting patients’ cyber identities needs to become as important as treating their ailments.
The CyberCompass® Difference
CyberCompass has a proven track record with companies dealing with a range of issues within healthcare cybersecurity. From seeking to build cyber resilience before a breach to dealing with an OCR audit after a breach, we’ve got you covered.
The client experienced a data breach and sent documentation to the OCR. However, because the HIPAA cybersecurity and compliance plans prepared by a law firm were not adequate to address a data breach, the OCR required a new submission. With only 2 weeks left to submit, one of our partners stepped in to help.
$500,000 fine, loss of patients and clients and lowered reputation.
Because of the automated capabilities of CyberCompass, a correct risk assessment along with appropriate documentation was delivered within 4 days to the client’s attorney. Incorrect statements about the data loss by the client were discovered, leading the OCR to dismiss the case.
Employees used private company information to create and sell fake IDs on the dark web
$100,000 fine, identity theft of patient’s data and loss of business reputation
With our integrated network and vulnerability scans, consultants were able to use CyberCompass to analyze activity logs of suspected users and provide documented proof that employees accessed the EMP system beyond their authorized use. They then accessed websites on the company network to create false identification material and sell it. They were also able to analyze the accessed documents to discover none were uploaded and no information from them could be found on the dark web, proving that no information was actually stolen, lost or destroyed. No fine was incurred and no notifications were required after review by legal counsel.
