CynergisTek’s new CRMP services bundle provides client with a customizable platform to ramp up cybersecurity and meet requirements of cyberinsurance providers
AUSTIN, TX (April 28, 2022) – CynergisTek (NYSE American: CTEK), leading cybersecurity, privacy, compliance, and IT audit firm helping organizations in highly regulated industries navigate emerging security and privacy issues, announces the launching of its new Continuous Risk Monitoring Program (CRMP) and its first contract, a six-figure agreement with a Southeastern hospital. This three-year contract will provide continuous threat monitoring services, establish countermeasures to combat ransomware and malicious attacks, and meet cyberinsurance requirements that will ensure lower premiums.
Small, rural healthcare providers have long been targets for bad actors preying on their limited cybersecurity budgets, outdated technologies, and minimal dedicated security resources. In 2021, the healthcare industry saw significant changes to cyber insurance requirements, including increases to premiums and decreases in coverage based on the risk that healthcare organizations present to their insurers due to immature cyber risk programs and heightened cyber threat. CynergisTek has recognized the need for a partner to aid in addressing these challenges head on in a practical, cost-effective manner and is providing a combination of world-class cybersecurity technology solutions and services that include Multi-Factor Authentication, Endpoint Protection, Threat Alerting and Monitoring, Advanced Analytics, IoT, Privileged Access Management, Ransomware Readiness, and Continuous Security Validation in customizable bundles and preferred pricing. By developing a comprehensive, ongoing, fully managed program into one seamless service offering, CynergisTek can aid clients in developing a more secure environment, address evolving threats such as ransomware, and ultimately reduce overall risk exposure.
“This is where industry know how, innovation, and out of the box thinking meets need in a meaningful way,” said Mac McMillan, CEO & President of CynergisTek. “Small to medium sized healthcare entities have been struggling for some time to try to keep up with the cybercriminals that pursue them just as relentlessly as their larger counterparts. Cyberinsurance requirements to add more technology have only exacerbated the challenges they are already having trouble facing, with little hope for improvement in their security posture. Simply adding more tech, even the right tech, if you can’t manage or monitor it effectively won’t resolve the underlying problem. We know this from the hundreds of assessments and tests we run every year, which is why we at CynergisTek have worked with partners to develop a customizable and managed solution that recognizes the unique needs of each client, meets insurance requirements, and improves security.”
“Our goal is to provide customers with an innovative technology stack coupled with ongoing managed services that enables organizations to be in the best position to identify, prevent, and defend the ever-evolving tools, techniques, and procedures of threat actors. Our Continuous Risk Monitoring Program provides these capabilities while providing 24x7/365 eyes-on-glass monitoring with an affordable pricing model that scales to all sized organizations and, unlike many solutions today, offers a totally predictable long-term total cost of ownership,” said Ben Denkers, CIO of CynergisTek.
By providing small, rural healthcare providers with access to the same levels of protection that have historically been seen in large enterprise organizations, hospitals are now armed with the tools and expertise required to protect themselves across the full threat landscape. CynergisTek helps organizations with fewer resources develop a well-rounded cybersecurity program and strengthen their cybersecurity posture. Maintaining an active risk management program is vital to building resilience in healthcare organizations and the industry, which is a cornerstone of the CynergisTek mission.
