Building cybersecurity programs…
Fortified’s Security Risk Assessments provide an accurate and thorough evaluation of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic protected health information held by the organization.
HIPAA Risk Assessments serve as a rigorous evaluation of an organization’s compliance with the specific policies, procedures and other requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule.
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is guidance based on existing standards and practices to help organizations better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. Fortified provides a comprehensive security assessment of an organization’s compliance within this Framework, along with direction to better communicate their cybersecurity posture.
HITRUST CSF® is a certifiable framework that provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible, and efficient approach to regulatory compliance and risk management. As a certified HITRUST assessor organization, Fortified uses a proprietary process to guide organizations through their certification journey.

Healthcare Security Operations Center (SOC)
Hunting for threats…
Fortified’s Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) program serves as the 24/7 security monitoring solution for healthcare organizations to monitor alerts, investigate, triage, and remediate security events.
Legacy medical devices that were not designed to be internet-accessible are now being connected to the internet, increasing security risks and vulnerability for healthcare environments. Fortified’s Managed Connected Medical Device & Security Program helps organizations close those security gaps in healthcare networks by visualizing, assessing, and protecting connected IoT and medical devices.
Fortified’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) program allows healthcare organizations to have a partner that proactively detects malicious activity and responds to critical threats, allowing security teams to focus energy remediating other risks.
Phishing is one of the top methods that cybercriminals use to gain access to networks and steal sensitive information, most frequently by disguising a phishing email as a legitimate email from an employer, government agency, or other organization. Managed Phishing & Education services from Fortified helps organizations prioritize strong email encryption and train employees to spot phishing scams.
& Incident Response
Responding to threats…
Fortified’s Vulnerability Threat Management Program (VTM) allows healthcare organizations to meet or exceed the mandated regulatory requirements to identify and document reasonably anticipated threats to electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).
Fortified’s Penetration Testing service consists of a real-world, simulated attack on a healthcare organization’s network. It is designed to validate the effectiveness of a security program by demonstrating how a malicious actor could gain access to the network and exploit vulnerabilities.
Fortified’s Incident Response (IR) Retainer program is founded in industry standard approaches to incident response and provides a review and recommendations to confirm documentation and processes are in place.
Fortified Health Security’s dedicated Incident Response Team is standing by to support you when emergency incidents occur.
The Fortified Compromise Assessment / Threat Indicator Assessment (TIA) is performed when there is suspicion of a network security incident or after a known security incident to verify no traces of infection remain.
