If there’s one area that the healthcare industry must improve, it’s cyber defense. Seventy percent of cybersecurity professionals surveyed by HIMSS in 2020 reported a “significant security incident” had affected their organization, including phishing (57%) and ransomware (20%), while HHS notes that the average cost to resolve a ransomware attack is roughly $1.27 million. These incidents also risk an organization’s reputation, client relationships, and — when it comes to government contracts — fines for noncompliance.

In order to avoid a potential network breach and data loss, it’s important for businesses to establish short-term and long-term updates. While some certifications are required among DoD contractors versus those in the private sector, there are many changes — specifically those for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) — that are likely to be adopted industry-wide. 

Navigating these changes and building your own framework may be challenging, and HCRS is here to help you through that process. We’ve partnered with healthcare organizations since the late ’90s to meet and exceed their information requirements. As a Registered Provider Organization (RPO), we offer guidance on how to prepare for certifications like CMMC, and assess what you may be lacking should you fail to gain certification status. We are not auditors, so this guidance does not include conducting certification or granting certification status. 

If you would like to schedule time for a discussion about the state of your current IT cyber defense, as well as strategies for how to improve, please fill out the accompanying form and one of our representatives will contact you.

We also encourage you to review the information that we’ve collected below. These resources are available for all organizations to make the most relevant choices for their in-house data management and protection.
