Health care organizations have been forced to evolve their information security and compliance practices within the last five to ten years. Most of this change has been driven by legislation like state breach laws and the HIPAA HITECH Act. Adding fuel to the fire of rapid change is President Obama’s initiative to digitize medical records in the U.S. by 2015.
There are benefits to digitizing medical records, but there are most certainly increased risks involved as well. Protecting privacy, restricting access, and ensuring the availability of those digital records are just a few examples of increased risk and complexity; this is where Infogressive can help. Confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data is our core focus as an information security firm.
With engagements like our Health Care focused Rapid Risk Assessments, generally within a week’s time we can, provide a blueprint of where a healthcare organization is currently with their information security posture and where they need to focus their resources short and long-term. For those organizations that already have a firm understanding of information security and where they excel and where they fall short, we offer a wide variety of market leading solutions and focused security services to help them continue to manage risk like:
- Penetration testing
- E-mail encryption
- Data Leak Prevention
- Managed Security Services
- Next Generation Firewalls
