Clearwater Compliance, LLC has been designated as the sole source provider of risk analysis software for the United States Air Force. This announcement reflects an increase in the U.S. Air Force’s commitment to play their part in helping to keep veteran’s health and other personal information safe and secure.
Bob Chaput, Clearwater CEO, has expressed pride in receiving the designation, stating: “We are honored to be playing a role in helping the Air Force to safeguard the information of active military and veterans who receive treatment at one of the 63 military treatment facilities in the U.S.”
Clearwater’s IRM|Analysis™ software will be used by the U.S. Air Force to help them to complete a thorough risk assessment to not only ensure their compliance with HIPAA regulations but to improve their overall risk management of important information. The software will also provide the Air Force with the tools necessary to respond to and monitor data security risks as part of their goal to maintain a complete information risk management program.
Since 2003, Clearwater has partnering with more than 500 organizations to assist them with creating and strengthening their information risk management programs through consulting and tools based on the NIST risk management process. They have been highlighted as one of the top cyber security companies in both The CyberSecurity 500 and the CIOReview 20 Most Promising Cyber Security Solutions list. Health care information privacy, security, compliance and risk management solutions from Clearwater Compliance LLC have also earned the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association.
With the ever-increasing threats to information security emanating from adversarial insiders and outsiders and constantly changing technology, Clearwater Compliance strives to give organizations solid guidelines and methods to protect patient information.
Chaput concludes, “We look forward to providing affordable and effective information risk management solutions to more Air Force military treatment facilities over the coming months.”
We have assisted more than 400 customers to operationalize and mature their information privacy, security, compliance and information risk management programs. And in the process, we are raising the bar for safeguarding PHI, protecting millions of Americans and driving real value for the organizations we support and the healthcare industry at large.
