Cybersecurity

Ransomware attacks on hospitals continue to rise.  Not being prepared is an existential threat, not only to your IT department, but to your hospital and the health of your community.  CHC understands an organization’s need for a comprehensive and cost-effective cybersecurity program.

The process we recommend includes:

  • Program Evaluation and Development
  • Communication Expertise and Toolkits
  • Cyber and HIPAA Security Risk Assessments
  • Disaster Preparedness and Security Operations Center Evaluation
  • Policy and Procedure Review
  • Staff Development
  • Security as a Service
  • Virtual CISO Services
  • Vulnerability Scanning and Penetration Testing
  • Security Incident Event Monitoring – leveraging AI and ML models
  • Security Operations Center – 24/7 monitoring of your environment
  • Incident Response Support

Benefits

  • Preparation. A cybersecurity attack can happen at anytime, so it is vital to be vigilant.
  • Documentation. Maintaining proper cybersecurity protocols keeps all stakeholders informed and aware of their role if an incident occurs.
  • Speed. When a security incident occurs, quick response can help minimize the impact. A clear plan allows the response team to move immediately into action mode.
  • Safety. Because hospitals are a ransomware target, it is vital to focus on maintaining cybersecurity.
