Watch Now!

In this webinar, Mark shared the benefits of deploying continuous monitoring as the foundation of a compliance validation program. Continuous monitoring with a colocation and cloud partner makes available, scalable resources such as people, processes, and technologies that even mid-sized healthcare organizations are challenged to provide. These resources can even be used to combat and adapt to new threats that prevent potential vulnerabilities from being exploited. Continuous monitoring meets the need for any organization to develop essential documentation and reporting required for audit support.

In the web cast you’ll walk away with:

  • The value of proactively identifying areas of risk and vulnerabilities before they expose the business and PHI
  • That audits are the by-product of continuous monitoring and a mature compliance and security program
  • How working with a partner can provide economies of scale to drive growth and value to your end users
