CynergisTek (NYSE American: CTEK), leading cybersecurity, privacy, compliance, and IT audit firm helping organizations in highly regulated industries navigate emerging security and privacy issues, recently announced one of the top obstetric and pediatric hospitals in the country that is also part of a prestigious academic medical center has signed a six-figure extension contract for professional service hours. The hospital continues to invest in CynergisTek’s virtual staffing and remediation services, adding over one thousand more hours of support throughout the next year.
“I have no doubt that this will continue to be a strong partnership with this client, and we are pleased to expand on offering our custom staffing remediation services,” said Mac McMillan, President, and CEO of CynergisTek. “The recent contract supports CynergisTek’s strategy to expand client retention, develop stronger relationships, and help protect the healthcare industry as a whole. Our job is to help identify gaps in your programs and provide guidance on how to remediate those gaps because simply knowing they are there isn’t enough.”
The agreement is an extension to the original contract that began in 2020 and enables the client to continue to leverage the value of CynergisTek’s solutions to optimize virtual staffing resources and enhance the client’s security programs. As healthcare continues to be a target of cyber-related incidents, hospitals need to take necessary steps to not only identify cyber risks, but follow through with prioritized remediation efforts to protect patient data, and avoid obstructing patient care. CynergisTek’s Information Security Remediation Services provide healthcare organizations with subject matter expertise from seasoned professionals who offer guidance and suggestions based on industry best practices, and the NIST privacy/security framework, to help address and remediate gaps in privacy, cybersecurity, compliance, and/or IT Audit programs.
