CynergisTek beats out competition in bid for technical testing, risk assessment, and security staffing for seven-hospital health system.
Austin, TX – August 10, 2021 – CynergisTek, (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leading cybersecurity firm helping healthcare organizations navigate emerging security and privacy issues, focusing on creating true partnerships, today announced the award of a new contract with a seven-hospital health system located in the mid-atlantic for a full range of security services including staffing to address the lack of resources with the necessary expertise on-hand.
CynergisTek will perform penetration testing services, a risk assessment to identify gaps in the existing security program and provide staffing support to remediate and help the organization meet its cybersecurity goals. Sixty-four percent of healthcare organizations are below a passing grade when it comes to NIST CSF conformance and the first step in determining where to focus efforts to improve an organization’s risk posture is through a thorough third-party risk assessment and technical testing. At CynergisTek, its services and rich expertise provide an in-depth analysis of risk and critical insight into a clear path forward to shore up cyber defenses. This six-figure services agreement is a further demonstration of the health system’s efforts to protect their operations and patient privacy and safety.
