CynergisTek to provide their ongoing flagship services to one of their largest health system customers, and a new top-rated hospital client
AUSTIN, TX (February 17, 2022) – 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, recently expands on relationship with one of the six divisions of a prestigious academic healthcare system located on the west coast and adds a top-ranked hospital located in the southeast region to their growing client base. CynergisTek has renewed an agreement with one of its top customers to provide its signature Compliance Assist Partner Program (CAPP) service, which will provide the organization with ongoing cybersecurity services, advisory services, and executive reviews of the client’s security infrastructure for another four years. CynergisTek has also signed a new agreement with a well-known independent nonprofit hospital to provide its Resilience Partner Program (RPP) service, which will provide this client with ongoing cybersecurity services specifically focused on the client’s medical device program enhancement for the next two years.
“This team is focused on growth, and we are making steady progress towards that goal. Seeing our renewal rates approach pre-COVID levels is a good sign and having clients such as these reaffirm their confidence in our support with, yet another renewal and an altogether new managed service relationship tells me we are doing the right things” said Mac McMillan, President & CEO of CynergisTek. “The market is receiving the new resilience approach positively and they are incorporating many of the new services that we have added in the last six months to their programs with several more to roll out shortly. These new services allow them to be much more proactive in their cybersecurity efforts” he says.
CynergisTek’s CAPP and RPP managed services help organizations improve their overall security programs. Organizations like this west coast-based academic healthcare system already understand the continuous value of managed services and rely on CynergisTek’s capability to help build resilience into their programs. To this client, the value of CynergisTek’s CAPP service is evident given the longevity of their pre-existing relationship and the renewal decision to increase the commitment from 3 to 4 years. Commitments like these support CynergisTek’s incentive to expand and assist the healthcare community with strengthening their proactive approach to cyber threats, a methodology the RPP managed service offering has been built on. As the industry warms up to a proactive cybersecurity approach, attracting net new managed service partnerships, like this southeast-based nonprofit healthcare provider, will strengthen the healthcare industry as a whole and together help decrease the impacts of cyber incidents.
