Automate Healthcare Cyber Risk Management

The healthcare industry constantly faces challenges in managing the risk around healthcare IoT, securing protected health information (PHI), enabling telehealth as both covered entities (CE) and their business associates (BA) strive to enable health and medical services in a quickly changing threat landscape.  

The critical infrastructure that our healthcare system provides is increasingly targeted by threat actors due to the concentration of protected health information and sprawling technology networks.  

Manage Cyber Risk and Compliance in One Comprehensive Platform

FortifyData’s platform can help healthcare organizations manage their cyber risk and regulatory compliance programs. FortifyData enables healthcare security and risk teams to continuously identify assets, view and manage risks by specific departments or subsidiaries, and perform business associate risk assessments. Also, manage the applicable regulatory compliance (HIPAA, HITRUST, HECVAT, PCI DSS, etc.) and questionnaire processes. FortifyData takes all this into account and can also provide a security rating for your healthcare organization, for specific departments or business associates to provide a quick reference point on how well parts of your healthcare organization and ecosystem are in managing their cyber risk.

Solutions for Healthcare Organizations

Attack Surface Management and Risk-based Vulnerability Management 

Starting with asset discovery and inventory, our Attack Surface Management (ASM) identifies your IT assets as an attacker will. FortifyData assesses all ports and services, in a non-intrusive manner, of the healthcare organization’s external and internal attack surface and identifies the same vulnerabilities an attacker would. Our prioritization capabilities help you cut through the noise and get a view of the vulnerabilities with the most impact that actually matters; you can view this across the entire healthcare organization or by specific department or business associate. You get a prioritized risk approach that considers context through asset classification, threat likelihood, and business impact, so you know where to focus time and resources on the most critical vulnerabilities to your organization. 

Managing Compliance, Improving Reporting and Communication 

FortifyData’s automated platform helps to streamline aspects of the compliance monitoring and reporting activities. The platform helps healthcare organizations to meet certain requirements of HIPAA and HITRUST compliance frameworks for cyber risk management, assessments, vulnerability management and business associate (third-party) cyber risk management.  

Additionally, reporting from the FortifyData platform provides easy to understand reports with underlying detail to better report and communicate compliance management with stakeholders.  

Third-Party Cyber Risk Management 

Effectively evaluate a vendor and the specific service or product a vendor provides.

Gain visibility into the cyber risks of your business associates and third parties with continuous assessments of their external assets. We integrate our technology assessment findings to our embedded standard compliance or custom questionnaires to perform auto-validation that saves time in reviewing responses. Keep up to date on the compliance of your business associates with your policies, and quickly identify vendors that do not comply. Get the full picture of external vulnerabilities at your third parties with our auto-validated questionnaires that leverage the live assessment data conducted on their environment. This provides you with the answers you need more quickly (in the time to run an assessment) than a manual questionnaire process. Create custom questionnaires that are specific to each vendor.

Speed up vendor evaluations by spending less time reviewing questionnaires with FortifyData’s Questionnaire Exchange. Participants instantly access shared validated cyber risk assessments and questionnaires, allowing you to quickly make risk based decisions.
