“Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.”
CynergisTek can assess your privacy program against regulations and best practices; offer advisory services from a team of experts; and help understand the realities of handling privacy incidents, investigations, and breaches. Strategic sourcing of privacy staffing resources is also an option to obtain privacy expertise without the overhead costs of hiring an internal resource.

“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.”
Medical Device Security
CynergisTek’s medical device security services help multiple stakeholders including, IT, Security, and Clinical Engineering understand the number and type of medical devices connected to the network, those that contain ePHI, and the security vulnerabilities of these devices.
“If a biomedical device is compromised or taken offline by a hacker, that poses a significant safety threat as providers may be unable to deliver the care a patient needs, putting the patient’s life in danger. Given the crucial role biomedical devices play in delivering patient care, it is critical that healthcare organizations take proactive steps to address the risks and vulnerabilities associated with these devices.”
