Clearwater Compliance announces strategic solution to help hospitals manage evolving cybersecurity risks
Clearwater Compliance, a leading provider of healthcare compliance and information risk management (IRM) services has announced the availability of Cyber Risk Services (CRS), a new managed solution endorsed by the American Hospital Association and designed to help CIOs and CISOs achieve rapid visibility and advancement in the information security compliance and risk management posture of healthcare organizations.
The highly visible and significant public attention to ransomware attacks in healthcare has accelerated a top-down cyber risk governance process and board-level involvement. While hospital boards focus on strategic direction from a broad high-level perspective, the CIO is focused on a holistic service that will unburden staff and quickly mature their enterprise compliance and cyber risk management program.
“Hospitals are doing more than ever to ensure they continue to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of patient information in this rapidly-changing environment of healthcare transformation,” said Doug Shaw, Chief Operating and Development Officer, Health Forum, the strategic business enterprise of the American Hospital Association. “Due to the constantly evolving threats to information security, hospital leaders today need a comprehensive, cost-effective approach to safeguard a hospital’s data, systems and reputation, and we are pleased to endorse Clearwater’s latest solution so hospitals can continue their proactive efforts around cybersecurity.”
