Top-Ranked Cybersecurity Firm Offers Flexible Set of Services for Healthcare Organizations and Business Associates

Mission Viejo, CA – February 21, 2018 CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in healthcare cybersecurity and information management, today announced the expansion of its Incident Response (IR) Services. The comprehensive suite of services is designed to help organizations meet the growing challenges of cyber-attacks with expertise, best practices, and guidance enabling them to be fully prepared to respond to a wide range of threats.

According to the Protenus Breach Barometer Report: Year in Review, there were more than 450 healthcare breaches reported last year affecting approximately 5.6 million patients, and reported ransomware and malware incidents more than doubled, all creating at least some adverse impact for the healthcare organization attacked. Cybersecurity incidents can disrupt clinical and business operations, preventing healthcare organizations from delivering critical services safely and efficiently. CynergisTek’s IR Services help organizations take a proactive approach to assessing, defining and preparing for a range of potential incidents such as a breach or ransomware attack. The new services are fully customizable, allowing organizations to choose one or bundle multiple services to best meet their specific needs, and ensure the right technologies, people and processes are in place when they need to respond to an incident.

“We know that incident response preparation is a key component of effectively coping with adverse security events, but assembling the required resources can be extremely time and resource intensive,” said Dan Morreale, CIO of Hunterdon Medical Center. “As the industry continues to face evolving threats, it has become imperative for healthcare providers to rely on trusted partners like CynergisTek to ensure we’re prepared.”

CynergisTek’s offering is immediately available and includes a range of incident response functions, such as program assessments, readiness exercises, program development, event response services, recovery services, and compliance services. To ensure maximum readiness these services are also combined and offered as a managed service to give organizations greater confidence they will have the support they need when they need it.

“Incident response is much more than an IT issue — it is an enterprise-wide operation, requiring constant and routine attention to safeguard against and survive the impact of attacks,” said David Finn, EVP of Strategic Innovation at CynergisTek. “With our IR Services, we can provide the tools and expertise healthcare organizations need to determine the severity of an event, and prioritize the optimal steps to minimize downtime and associated implications of the incident.”
