CynergisTek, Inc.

The large healthcare system currently contracts with CynergisTek for its Compliance Assist Partner Program (CAPP) and Patient Privacy Monitoring Program, as well as partners with the company to provide security assessments for a variety of its other affiliated locations.The healthcare system has adopted services to identify vulnerabilities and analyze risk to meet HIPAA requirements and ensure security weaknesses do not go undetected with its many supply chain partners. The organization now has three ongoing managed service partnerships with CynergisTek, including the latest addition of the VSM program for managing third-party risk.Vendors working with healthcare organizations have accounted for more than 20% of the breaches reported in 2019, and the largest.

Supply chain partners such as cloud providers, service providers, outsourcers, etc. form a critical component of most healthcare entities business strategy. Understanding and addressing the risk that these valuable business partners represent is critical to success.
