Why Partnerships Are Important to Healthcare Security and Incident Response – HealthTech Magazine

What Services Do Security Partners Provide?

Security partners should offer end-to-end security solutions that are tailored to the healthcare organization. A security partner can advise the organization on a wide range of comprehensive security assessments, such as vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, applications, system configuration, ransomware and social engineering assessments.

Through its CDW Amplified™ Security services, CDW can design, orchestrate and manage a healthcare organization’s security strategy. It can perform a comprehensive security assessment, as well as assessments against NIST or PCI security frameworks. CDW’s security experts begin by taking a hard look at a healthcare organization’s security posture from a multidisciplinary perspective. Its engineers then provide for a continuous defense strategy to meet the shifting conditions of the security landscape.

Understanding an organization’s current defense posture from a networking, information security and privacy perspective is key to designing a comprehensive strategy to prevent data breaches and proactively respond to cyberattacks. CDW engineers can assist with the installation and deployment of a security strategy to ensure the technology is optimized for the environment.
