KLAS Research and Censinet Recognize Carium as Cybersecurity Transparent Leader at HLTH 2022
This week at HLTH in Las Vegas, Carium was presented an award for cybersecurity transparency by KLAS, a healthcare research and insights firm, and Censinet, the leading provider of healthcare IT risk solutions. This designation indicates Carium’s Care Experience Platform (CXP) meets rigorous requirements for deployment and integration into a healthcare provider’s environment.
According to the 2022 IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report, the cost of a security breach in the healthcare industry increased 42% since 20201. Healthcare organizations are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks because they possess so much information of high monetary and intelligence value to cyber criminals.
This Cybersecurity Transparency designation provides greater transparency to healthcare organizations and can accelerate the adoption of healthcare solutions without compromising a healthcare organization’s risk posture.
Censinet is a KLAS partner specializing in risk management, assessment and operations across the healthcare IT industry. Through this partnership, KLAS invites vendors to complete a voluntary, no-cost evaluation. The evaluation consists of security preparedness questions that are based on both NIST and HIPAA standards, as well as evidence of preparations, including audits they participated in.
Carium received a perfect score, ranking “mature” across all six categories including: Network Security, Data Protection, Identity and Access Management, Threat and Incident Response, Legal and Regulatory and Resiliency
“Carium is trusted by health systems, practices, payors and patients. And we take that responsibility seriously with regards to security and privacy,” said Carium’s Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Scott Pradels. “We value this effort by KLAS Research and Censinet to perform a transparent cybersecurity readiness evaluation. Carium has prioritized cybersecurity since our inception in 2018 — and this designation and recognition speaks to our steadfast commitment to healthcare security.”
