“Never take good relationships for granted. It’s amazing who will cover for you and get things done when you need it the most. Fortified never failed to surprise me. They said, ‘Whatever you need, we’ll take care of it.’ Not many do that.”

Director of Information Security and Project Management

“Nothing has been as effective as the contract with Fortified to provide the ongoing risk assessment. Everyone in the industry is concerned with having OCR knock on their door and say: Show me your risk assessment and what you’re doing about it. We can do that—we can show the progress we’re making. We’re not sitting idly by hoping we skirt an issue.”
Joe Hooks

Change is constant, especially in cybersecurity.  That’s why we write the Horizon Report.

Since 2017, Fortified Health Security has written this comprehensive, thoughtful guide and offered it completely free for our industry. The semi-annual report starts with key statistics about breaches and OCR activity. It then goes in-depth about market dynamics such as emerging threats, expanding attack surfaces, and budget prioritization.

We blend healthcare and cybersecurity expertise with a set of purpose-built, technology enabled services that drive the outcome healthcare demands at a price that organizations can afford.

We recognize healthcare organizations have unique cybersecurity challenges compared to other industries. With zero downtime requirements for critical systems, a cybersecurity event can have a significant impact on patient care. 

Your patient data is better protected through collective intelligence and best practices. When we identify threats impacting one healthcare organization, we leverage this healthcare specific threat intelligence to further strengthen all members of the Fortified ecosystem. 

With our award-winning processes combined with our team’s extensive experience in healthcare cybersecurity, our clients learn we’re all-in when it comes to quickly and cost effectively improving their cybersecurity maturity. From initial assessment through successful outcome, let us become your proven partner on this journey. 

Through our multi-faceted approach, people take precedence – whether recruiting and educating employees or choosing the right partner. But we also closely scrutinize and improve the processes that support your organization’s security culture; while confirming the right technology is identified, implemented and purpose-built to your needs.
