The Problem

Contemporary health care providers face abounding security concerns and any breach will have a direct financial and reputational impact on their organizations. The need for a security officer is vital at most organizations with over 100 employees. Many health care facilities do not have a dedicated, experienced Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), but do not need a full-time employee – plug your security gaps with our experts.

The Solution

In brief, the following is what a client can expect from an interim CISO:

  • The CISO will be on-site for a defined period; specified days/week or weeks/month
  • CISO is responsible for a set of agreed upon routine security responsibilities
  • CISO also works on designated projects outside of routine security operations
  • CISO is reachable by phone / email at all times

  • Serve as a critical bridge between compliance and Information technology operations
  • Have a designated contact for IT, Audit, and Compliance inquiries
