A Full Suite of OCR-Quality Testing

More than ever, workforce members of healthcare organizations are exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks. Insufficient awareness of today’s security threats within an organization’s workforce presents a critical vulnerability, exposing healthcare entities to exploitation of that vulnerability.

Organizations can implement extensive, costly, multi-layered cybersecurity defenses, but with a click of a button, these defensive layers can be circumvented and rendered useless. Knowing the “Security Awareness” level of the organization, identifying weaknesses, and mitigating weaknesses through training is key to managing this risk.

Clearwater’s talented security experts combine our cutting-edge tools, comprehensive manual testing, and unparalleled real-world technology experience to improve your overall security posture through our Vulnerability and Penetration Testing services.

The Clearwater Technical Testing Services include, but are not limited to:

Internal & External Vulnerability Assessment: Identify weaknesses and understand how they can be exploited by malicious actors to gain broad access to internal information systems and identify vulnerabilities that are exposed to the public internet. Build risk-based remediation plans from detailed analyses provided in our advanced reporting to address findings and prevent malicious outsiders from exploiting undiscovered weaknesses.

WLAN Security Validation: Conduct a vulnerability assessment and penetration test of your wireless network and evaluate access points and controller configurations.

Network Architectural Assessment: Evaluate the design of the network and computing infrastructure within your organization. Ensure a synergistic defense and an in-depth information security architecture to strengthen the security defense posture of your information systems.

Penetration Testing: Conduct a series of authorized simulated attacks on your information systems to evaluate the effectiveness of existing security safeguards. Use a risk-based approach to develop effective safeguards to remediate security weaknesses.

Web Application Testing: Identify security flaws and weaknesses that could allow damaging compromises or disruptions to public-facing web applications and services. Leverage the latest OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) testing standards to assess web application security defense posture of your information systems.

Security Awareness Assessment: Assess the effectiveness of your security awareness training by simulating attacks that attempt to exploit the human factor in your risk management program. Conduct phishing, pre-texting, and other evaluations.

Conducting an OCR-Quality Technical Evaluation required at 45 CFR §164.308(a)(8) helps organizations test the effectiveness and efficacy of the controls they’ve implemented and meet the explicit HIPAA Security Rule requirements for periodic technical evaluation.
