What Our Customers are Saying

A CIO’s mission should be to protect patient privacy through the continual improvement of security programs. Having CynergisTek conduct an annual risk assessment supports my team as we work towards this mission by identifying vulnerabilities, analyzing risk, and revealing trends that might have gone unnoticed without them.
Chuck Podesta, Chief Information Officer, University of California, Irvine
CynergisTek’s OCR Mock Audit service helped us prepare for the OCR HIPAA audit process immensely. We worked at our own pace to identify and address any gaps that may have been problematic down the line, and received actionable insights from CynergisTek for improving our overall security posture. Today, we feel more confident than ever in our ability to respond to an audit.
Daniel Bowden, Chief Information Security Officer, University of Utah Health Care
CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening, and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.
Joe Egan, Manager of Information Security, Children’s Hospital Central California
