As cyberattacks surge during the COVID-19 crisis and information security teams at health care providers and their vendors work to manage new vulnerabilities and threats borne from the rapid transition to a remote workforce, Clearwater’s IRM|Analysis software is helping more than 400 health care customers rapidly identify, prioritize and respond to cyber risks on an enterprise scale.
Designed to facilitate a consistent, information system-focused risk analysis, the software provides the means to assess risk scenarios presented in a work-from-home environment.
Using IRM|Analysis, health care organizations can re-evaluate the controls that are in place to mitigate the likelihood of a threat exploiting a vulnerability that may exist within information system components that are now in use by remote workers.
Risk scenarios embedded within IRM|Analysis include:
Upon identifying risks, customers can prioritize any risks above their risk threshold and determine whether to accept, transfer, avoid, or mitigate the risk. In cases where organizations decide to implement additional security measures to reduce risk, Clearwater is making its expert consulting team available to customers at no charge – as capacity permits – to help them thoughtfully consider which risk scenarios they should assess and provide consultation on available options that can be implemented quickly and in the context of a work-at-home environment.
“When our health care organizations are already under stress, it is even more important that we keep our systems up and health care information flowing,” said Clearwater CEO Steve Cagle. “It is unfortunate that at a time like this we need to worry even more about bad actors who might put patient lives in danger with a ransomware attack or attempt to steal sensitive patient data. Trying times can bring out the worst in people, but they can also bring out the best. Clearwater is proud to be playing a small role in helping our health care heroes maintain a strong cybersecurity posture while they work to meet patient and community needs.”
