Protect Patient Data -
Wherever It Exists.
As healthcare providers move their medical records from the physical world to the digital world, understanding the potential threats gets exponentially more difficult. vCISO™ helps doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and even med-tech companies understand how best to safeguard their protected health information (PHI).
The Law Is on the Patient's Side
Healthcare is one of the most regulated industries - and rightfully so. Patients expect their sensitive conversations to be kept private and they expect all their written data will be treated with equal care.
Numerous laws exist at federal and provincial/state levels of government which require any organization handling medical records to exercise certain precautions. Failure to comply with these laws and regulations can result in large fines or even suspension of medical licenses.
Knowing the laws that apply and being compliant are the responsibility of the business. Ignorance of the law is never an effective defence.
