Increasing Your Cybersecurity Posture: Value of Partnering with a Healthcare Exclusive MSSP
Many healthcare organizations today are hiring managed security service providers (MSSP) to manage specific security initiatives, or in some cases, outsourcing their entire security program. This approach is especially beneficial to those that have limited IT resources, lack internal security expertise, struggle to hire security talent, or simply need to implement a security program faster than they could in-house. But hiring an MSSP without the specific healthcare experience can pose just as much risk as cyber threats and attacks. Preston Duren, Director of Cybersecurity Operations at Fortified Health Security will discuss best practices for IT leaders to use when evaluating MSSPs and the importance of choosing the right partner. Topics include:
- Understanding the nuances of securing a healthcare environment;
- Key skills, certifications, and experience necessary for an effective healthcare MSSP;
- Real-life examples of damage and disruption that can be caused by an inexperienced cybersecurity team.
