Clearwater delivers cyber risk management solutions to hundreds of healthcare delivery organizations and their partners. The enormous data set of cyber risk information stored in our IRM|Analysis™ database enables us to capture deep insights surrounding current cyber threats and identify trends that will help inform and prepare organizations to Manage Cyber Risk Right.
Clearwater’s IRM|Analysis™ software facilitates and strengthens an organization’s cyber risk management program by providing an automated, scalable process for assessing, remediating and monitoring the security risks to the organization’s critical business systems and sensitive data while maintaining the evidence necessary for an audit or investigation. The Clearwater CyberIntelligence Institute, using its advanced analytics and data mining capabilities, has discovered significant patterns from our data base which has been populated by organizations over the last six years and contains millions of data risk records from hospitals, Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) and business associates.
Most Common Security Weaknesses Found In Hospitals & Health Systems
Hospital Executives might direct their immediate attention to these top vulnerabilities and, perhaps, take immediate action to reduce their organization’s risk profile. We analyzed high and critical risks facing hospitals and health systems found in our database and summarized them based on Clearwater’s comprehensive method of evaluating administrative, technical and physical vulnerabilities. Based on this analysis, we discovered the three most common critical and high security risks found during a HIPAA Risk Analysis using our software were:
- User Authentication Deficiencies
- Endpoint Leakage
- Excessive User Permissions
