Clearwater Compliance, LLC is proud that it has once again been included in Cybersecurity Venture’s List of Cybersecurity 500 innovative companies for the second year in a row.  The company retains the number 11 spot in this second edition of the Cybersecurity 500, which is a directory of the “hottest and most innovative” cybersecurity companies to keep an eye on in 2016.

Given the growth in the cybersecurity industry in response to the enormous increase in the threat landscape, it is a particularly notable accomplishment to be recognized among the top 20 companies on this exclusive list.

NIST Cybersecurity Framework White Paper

Cybersecurity Ventures recognizes companies for their efforts in increasing awareness of information privacy and security issues. They review thousands of companies as part of their selection process.  The Cybersecurity 500 provides IT and information professionals with a searchable reference list to find quality vendors to match their needs.

Clearwater’s inclusion on this list for the second year running is a direct reflection of its ongoing commitment to providing exemplary privacy, security, compliance, and information risk management solutions to companies in the healthcare industry across the U.S.

Inclusion on the Cybersecurity 500 list is not determined by revenue, number of employees or annual growth.  Instead, the list is comprised of companies based on their market sector, customer base, problems they’ve solved, published product reviews, demos and presentations at conferences, and a variety of other relevant factors.

Candidates for the Cybersecurity 500 are compiled from research of hundreds of cybersecurity events and news stories.  They also take into consideration feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners, and service providers.  Each company is then individually scrutinized by the Cybersecurity Ventures team, headed by Steve Morgan, a noted cybersecurity expert who frequently writes on the topic for publications such as Forbes and CSO Online.

Clearwater looks forward to leveraging the exposure to continue to encourage more organizations to abandon a “checklist” mentality and adopt a more mature NIST-based information risk management program.
