Security and Healthcare Data—It’s Critical

As medical records are transitioning to solely digital formats, regulatory acts such as HIPAA and FISMA continue to increase the pressure on the healthcare industry to boost security standards.

Many companies claim to be up to the task of protecting this data, but simply do not have the needed expertise and experience. Foreground Security brings these essential elements to the table, working successfully with the highest profile healthcare organizations to create customized programs that thrive in a continuously monitored environment.

Foreground’s services cover the full spectrum of healthcare security requirements:

  • Penetration testing
  • Security engineering
  • Architecture engineering
  • Compliance documentation and assessments
  • User training
  • Forensics expertise (to classify and protect data)

Working with leading public and private sector organizations, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Blue Cross Blue Shield, Foreground Security’s highly trained team of professionals significantly improves security effectiveness, incident response times and compliance reporting while providing continuous monitoring to proactively prevent intrusions. The results for HHS were so dramatically positive, that the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US CERT) recognized Foreground Security’s approach and execution for setting the new government standard.

Healthcare data is one of the biggest security targets on the planet—an unfortunate reality that will only grow in scope as more and more records are stored and transmitted electronically.

Your organization—whether a health-focused government agency or private company—can’t afford the risk of exposure.
