Assessing Compliance Posture and Third-Party Performance for a State Agency
A state agency with limited resources and a relatively new team sought to understand the overall maturity of their privacy program, with special attention to any gaps or vulnerabilities regarding HIPAA privacy compliance. They also contracted a third party to operate some of their facilities and needed to assess their performance against both HIPAA regulations and a sample facility run by the agency.
After conducting an assessment, Optiv presented a complete revision of policies to significantly increase program maturity and eliminate conflicting information between agency and third-party operations. This involved returning ownership and oversight of the privacy program to the covered entity privacy officer and creating and implementing new formal processes and documentation to align business practices with privacy regulations.
By the end of the engagement, the agency had established a mature, compliant standard to use across all the facilities they managed, and improved communication and collaboration between the covered entity and third-party associate to protect patient privacy.
Adoption of Policies and Standards Across Newly Acquired Clinics by a National Healthcare Benefits Provider
A national healthcare benefits provider had recently acquired a group of patient clinics across multiple markets, as well as a smaller group of clinics in the Pacific Northwest. The parent company’s policies and standards needed to be adopted by the newly acquired clinics, which were of significantly different maturity levels by market.
The client had a few objectives:
Optiv’s assessment mapped all HIPAA findings to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) to complement the parent company’s organizational standards and support current risk management integration efforts. We provided separate reports, executive presentations and remediation roadmap recommendations for each individual market and business unit to address their unique priorities.
After the engagement, the client had significantly improved their HIPAA security posture across the organization and had a standardized point of authority at the agency level across all facilities and business units. They also gained valuable insight into how to prioritize and further integrate newly acquired markets under their corporate cybersecurity standards.
Assessing, Optimizing and Operating an IoT/OT Environment for a Fortune 500 Pharma Client
A Fortune 500 pharmaceutical manufacturer needed to rapidly deploy a global internet of things and operational technology (IoT/OT) implementation to provide threat monitoring of their existing COVID-19 manufacturing environment. They hoped to scale and optimize their existing resources while reducing IoT/OT deployment times. They also wanted to develop 24/7 threat detection, analysis and response capabilities as well as specific runbooks for their IoT/OT environment.
Optiv began with a discovery and assessment workshop with a focus on detection content as well as existing processes and technology. We took a phased approach to deploy, tune and onboard each manufacturing site into our managed security services (MSS) to accelerate monitoring coverage and provided manual analysis of OT reports until MSS onboarding was complete. This approach not only decreased the time to monitoring, but also the overall deployment time of the IoT/OT environment.
Our capability-based approach helped the client meet their requirements and enabled us to accelerate project delivery and provide guidance on strategic execution. The tailored runbooks and around-the-clock coverage we provided also improved visibility into the IoT/OT components of their security environment, such as infrastructure, data flow and threats. This led to greater efficiencies and more value from their technology investments and, in turn, a measurable reduction in risk, time-to-remediate and patient care-impacting events.
We know the healthcare industry is unique. Our people have the right experience to understand that security strategy in healthcare goes far beyond just HIPAA compliance.
