Get the big picture of your healthcare organization's IT security posture.
Determining where true risk exists can be a daunting task, especially when considering the ever-changing pace of technology, information security, your industry and your business. Oftentimes, things rarely stand still long enough to be measured and if you’re not able to measure risk, it’s unlikely you’re going to be able to manage it effectively.
A HIPAA IT Risk Assessment will help establish a complete picture of your organization’s overall security posture. It can also help to prevent breaches, reduce the impact of a breach if one occurs, and provide a clear roadmap to achieving compliance with the HIPAA-HITECH regulations and mandates. Experts agree that performing a Healthcare IT Risk Assessment is the best first step on the road to HIPAA compliance, and is the most important measure to repeat on an ongoing basis. An IT Risk Assessment is especially useful if your organization is subject to compliance standards beyond HIPAA—such as PCI—as it will enable overlapping requirements to be addressed efficiently.
When you engage ControlScan for a HIPAA IT Risk Assessment, we'll tailor the process to your specific organization, environment and circumstances. However, the engagement will always begin with a senior consultant working closely with you and your team to identify and evaluate your most critical assets and functional areas.
Reducing your risk begins here.
Your organization’s critical assets face threats that extend beyond the realm of technology. Your processes and employees can expose your crown jewels in ways that cannot be mitigated with technical controls alone. Understanding all of these factors in terms of business risk will play a key role in your ability to defend what matters most.
