Healthcare IT Privacy and Security Firm is Included on List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies for Third Consecutive Year

Austin, Texas, August 24, 2016 — CynergisTek, an authority in health information security, privacy and compliance, today announced it was ranked as the 512th fastest-growing private company in the U.S. on the annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking published by Inc. Magazine. This marks the third consecutive year the company has made this list, rising from number 941 in 2015 and 2252 in 2014. This year, CynergisTek is the highest ranked healthcare security company on the list, and is the eighth highest overall security vendor.

“We are honored to once again be included on the Inc. 5000, jumping almost halfway up the 2015 list from our position in 2014, and even more so from 2013,” said Dr. Michael Mathews, Chief Operating Officer of CynergisTek. “Climbing very close the top 10 percent of this prestigious list demonstrates how CynergisTek continues to over perform year after year. We credit this growth to high demand for third party support in the increasingly complex regulatory landscape and the recent spike in sophisticated threats to healthcare data.”

In addition to ascending the Inc. 5000, CynergisTek is also the highest ranked company on the list that solely provides services. Specifically, CynergisTek provides IT security consulting to healthcare organizations. The company recently announced record growth in the first half of this year.

“We founded CynergisTek in 2004 to address a growing need for privacy and security expertise in healthcare, and we’ve significantly grown our team and expanded the depth and breadth of our services since our inception,” said Mac McMillan, Chief Executive Officer of CynergisTek. “To be ranked among the top companies in the U.S. for the third year in a row is a huge honor and revalidation we are doing the right things, as well as a testament to the talented people we have working at CynergisTek.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18-20 in San Antonio featuring speakers such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan, and more.
