February 2018

In a recent recap and, perhaps, so long/farewell letter to 2018, Health IT Security reported that "hackers are increasing in sophistication and steadily improving success rates." Last year kicked “off with a bang with several high-profile security events and continued” as 2018 came to a close. The article predicts that the Healthcare “industry will continue to face near-daily breaches until they can catch up to hackers.”

Protecting sensitive information and patient safety requires knowing where your exposures are. Improving your organization's security posture begins with a comprehensive, OCR-Quality Risk Analysis across all your information assets. Clearwater delivers the most comprehensive, enterprise, OCR-Quality Risk Analysis available, as demonstrated by a 100% OCR-acceptance rate.

Gain true visibility. Prevent breaches. Avoid OCR fines and penalties. Begin today!
