A Top 10 Public University Managed Service Client Expands Relationship with Additional Cybersecurity Services

Multiple academic medical centers turn to CynergisTek based on the company’s reputable and proven position in serving the healthcare cybersecurity market

AUSTIN, TX (December 17, 2021) – CynergisTek (NYSE American: CTEK), a leading cybersecurity, privacy, compliance, and IT audit firm helping organizations in highly regulated industries navigate emerging security and privacy issues, announces expansion with an existing Resilience Partner Program (RPP) client to perform custom security assessments and penetration testing services for multiple academic medical centers within their nationally recognized university system.

Having insight into your organization’s overall risk posture and knowing your network’s critical security vulnerabilities is a top priority, especially for healthcare organizations providing direct patient care. A cyber incident could result in an overarching snowball effect on hospital operations and initiatives and even impede patient care. CynergisTek’s Security Risk Assessments provide independent, third-party guidance from industry experts who assess the organization’s overall risk posture against the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and industry best practices. CynergisTek’s Penetration Testing Services uncover potential security vulnerabilities and help identify prioritized areas of improvement.

“Our partnership is about taking an active role with clients to help stop and defend against attacks. We developed our Resilience Partner Program for this very reason. The growing reach across our RPP clients continues to thrive and we’re honored they’ve expanded additional outsourcing needs to us,” said Mac McMillan, CEO, and President at CynergisTek.  “We see continued demand for our services both from our existing and new clients.  Expansion of services within our large customer base is foundational to our growth and we pride ourselves in the relationships we build during every engagement.  We will continue to strengthen our relationships with our clients resulting in more contract expansions to deliver additional quality services while additional revenue opportunities.”
