Nationally recognized health system more than doubles its contractual renewal with CynergisTek to include additional affiliate hospitals

Austin, TX – April 27, 2021CynergisTek, (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leading cybersecurity firm helping organizations in highly regulated industries, today announced a $600,000 managed services renewal agreement with a long-term client along with over $800,000 in new services to add coverage for its new affiliate hospitals to conduct on-going security risk assessments and related services.

CynergisTek’s State of Healthcare Security 2020, reports that when it comes to cybersecurity it’s all about rinse, repeat, and repeat again. Organizations that conduct regular risk assessments and prioritize remediation show significant improvement in their NIST CSF conformance and score. Last year the healthcare industry experienced a 260% increase in ransomware attacks and when Covid-19 quickly changed the traditional business model to remote work and telehealth it gained the attention from board-level executives to focus on building stronger cybersecurity and privacy practices. CynergisTek’s managed services are designed to reduce risk over time by supporting the organization to continually remediate, train, evaluate the strategy, and validate the effectiveness of their efforts.

“Healthcare consolidation has led to an increased attack surface and new risks as organizations become larger and more complex. We are proud that our client is committed to solidifying their security and privacy posture across the entire enterprise including their new affiliate hospitals and for choosing CynergisTek as their critical partner on this journey.” said Caleb Barlow, CEO and president at CynergisTek.
