Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters

Fortified Health Security was tapped to provide a purpose-built, healthcare focused managed SIEM solution that correlates and aggregates security events, alerts on critical events and incidents, and a team that guides remediation recommendations. By outsourcing these functions, Virginia’s only free-standing children’s hospital was able lighten the CISO’s heavy load of providing top-notch cybersecurity and outstanding connectivity to CHKD clinicians.

“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.”

Fort HealthCare

Thanks to a comprehensive Virtual Information Security Program (VISP) developed with Fort HealthCare’s resource limitations in mind, the health system saw a 50% reduction in critical and high vulnerabilities within six months.

“Fortified gives us confidence to know we adhere to the latest cybersecurity best practices. Their proactive insights offer knowledge and resources we may not have on our own, while keeping us focused on the most pressing needs. They’re on top of their game.”

When recruiting a new CISO proved difficult, Fortified stepped in with its Virtual Information Security Program (VISP). Using a focused HIPAA risk analysis process, the combined team successfully bolstered the health system’s HIPAA security and compliance program.

“Fortified’s VISP services worked very closely with our team to establish an innovative security risk management process tailored perfectly to our unique environment and needs. Their VISP alignment around mitigating risks without over-architecting or overselling our needs has been invaluable to us.”

Beacon Health System

A merger of two community hospitals led to a thriving regional medical center that needed to centralize its cybersecurity program, track data loss, and remediate vulnerabilities. Following deployment of DLP and VTM solutions, plus migration of the hospital’s existing SIEM into a fully managed solution, Beacon is at the forefront of cybersecurity protection efforts.

“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.”
