Clearwater Compliance is celebrating this week after it was announced they had made the Top 20 of CIOReview’s 20 Most Promising Cyber Security Solutions.
The annual list of software providers considers information security solutions across every industry, from manufacturing to healthcare, and is held in high regard among the publication’s readership of Chief Information Officers. Both existing and up-and-coming software developers view inclusion in the list as a benchmark for future software provision.
CEO and founder of Nashville-based Clearwater Compliance, Bob Chaput was delighted to learn his company had gained recognition from the CIOReview team. He said: “Our customers are always over-the-moon with the products we provide for them but, of course, it’s always nice to receive public recognition too – both for myself and the rest of the team.”
He went on to say that one of the reasons the company’s software solutions play such a valuable and innovative role in the healthcare sector today is because Clearwater’s software is designed to enable healthcare to readily operationalize their information risk management programs while reducing their reliance on third-party professionals.
“Our solutions play a predominant role because they help organizations to be self-sufficient without them having to rely on expensive consultants. Our aim is to approach every customer with dedication to do what’s right for them.”
This accolade is not the first time the company has recently received industry acclaim. Earlier this year they featured in the CyberSecurity 500, a list of “Hot Cybersecurity Companies to Watch in 2015.”
To date Clearwater Compliance, whose Health Care Information Privacy, Security, Compliance and Risk Management Solutions also enjoy the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association, has helped more than 450 clients improve the programs in place to protect health care information.
The company, which was formed in 2003, achieves its goal for each individual client via a four-pronged approach based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security framework and involves:
•Creating a company Risk Strategy
•Listing company risks and vulnerabilities in a Risk Register
•Devising a Risk Response Plan
•Forming a Risk Monitoring Process
Chaput was quick to point out that education and training also form a core part of their services. “Management or board members don’t have malice of intent when there is a data breach,” he said. “There is only a huge educational gap and here at Clearwater Compliance we aim to support middle management in filling that gap.”
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.
