Our clients include hospitals large and small, physician practices, health plans, children’s hospitals, academic medical centers, and many others. Our services are tailored to this community and its unique needs.


Practical Knowledge

With the constant influx of new regulations, threats, and technologies in healthcare today, it is imperative to remain up to speed with these trends. Our consultants have the benefit of working with many organizations and can help identify problems and solutions that have been proven to work at other health systems.


Extensive Expertise

We handle the burden of sourcing, interviewing, hiring, and managing professionals for you. Our strategy to recruit and retain staff of the highest caliber is our top priority, and we have a team dedicated to finding and filling the roles you need today regardless of your geographical location.


Continual Education

All of our vCISO consultants have college degrees and maintain a variety of certifications, such as CISSP, HCISSP, CIPP, CHC, and CISM, and they regularly participate in formal courses, workgroups, conferences, and other events to increase their professional knowledge and stay connected to the cybersecurity community.

Having a partner that is actively monitoring our systems, trends, local and global threats not only saves the Virtua IT Security team time, but provides us with the ability to proactively look at potential threats to plan accordingly. The partnership with CynergisTek has allowed us to focus on compliance, developing risk programs, policy and procedures leading to a culture focused on making us more secure.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

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.

Vice President, Chief Information & Compliance Officer, Saratoga Hospital

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.

Director of Information Security, Valley Children’s Hospital

We just had our Incident Response exercise and I wanted to let you know that I have received a lot of positive feedback from all participants including our Executives and Board Members. Everyone was impressed at how the exercise was well-prepared and conducted. Obviously, it goes to your leadership. You were able to relate to all participants, ask the right questions, and in general keep the exercise going forward. You did a great job! Thank you so much CynergisTek!
