Company to Demonstrate How Continuous Cyber Risk Scoring and Attack Surface Validation Minimizes Threat Exposure for Healthcare Providers
Sunnyvale, Calif. and Albuquerque, N.M. – June 07, 2017 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that it will showcase the RiskSense Platform and its continuous cyber risk scoring capabilities at the 13th AMC Security & Privacy Conference from June 12 – 13, 2017 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The event is hosted by the North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance (NCHICA) and dedicated to accelerating the transformation of the U.S. healthcare system through the effective use of information technology, informatics, and analytics.
The healthcare industry has experienced an onslaught of cyber-attacks over the last year, primarily driven by the fact that patient records are highly prized assets among cyber criminals. Protected health information sells for 30 times more than financial information on the dark web, since it contains a full identity profile including social security numbers. To complicate matters, the increased digitalization and exchange of healthcare information between services providers has dramatically broadened the industry’s attack surface. This is placing healthcare providers in an even more defensive position. Being in the cross hairs of motivated cyber gangs is forcing the healthcare industry to address some stiff cyber risk management challenges.
RiskSense is sponsoring the 13th AMC Security & Privacy Conference and will share actionable information from customer deployments to help healthcare providers implement a comprehensive continuous cyber risk scoring and mitigation program that can:
- Automate the assessment of cyber risk exposure across an expanding attack surface, spanning the network, Web applications, databases, and operational technologies often present in healthcare environments;
- Pinpoint critical vulnerabilities that are likely exploitable and pose an imminent threat to enable healthcare providers to fix what really matters;
- Prioritize the mitigation of risks based on business criticality and operational impact; and
- Generate reports on the organization’s risk and security posture in near real time.
RiskSense has pioneered the category of cyber risk management in response to the increasing challenges of extracting actionable intelligence from the massive volume of data generated by a patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. The RiskSense Platform is the first cyber risk management solution that allows healthcare providers to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, quickly orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. RiskSense reduces detection to remediation to minutes, not months, by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. This intelligence-driven approach enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations.
The company also offers two managed services: RiskSense Vulnerability Discovery and RiskSense Attack Surface Validation. These are delivered via the RiskSense Platform and provide healthcare organizations with cyber security insights to supplement their existing IT resources and expertise in a cost-efficient manner.
