Healthcare organizations invest significant human and financial resources in cybersecurity. And just like their counterparts in other industries, health IT leaders know their jobs involve highly sensitive data that, if compromised, could jeopardize staff and customer privacy.

But clinical organizations face the added burden of knowing any cybersecurity failures could affect the physical safety — and even the lives — of patients.

This heightened risk requires intense scrutiny. There’s simply no margin for error.

This is why healthcare leaders often turn to external organizations to better understand their current risk environment and identify opportunities for improvement. These independent assessments can identify issues that might have gone unnoticed.

Doing so doesn’t imply your teams aren’t up to the task. Simply providing a fresh set of eyes can often identify previously undetected issues.
