Censinet Advances Cybersecurity Program for Digital Health Innovators with Enhanced Support for Education, Advisory Services, Analytics, and Marketing

Company to Formally Recognize Cybersecurity Transparent Pioneers at HLTH 2021 Health Innovation Event in Boston

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – October 18, 2021 – Censinet, the leading provider of healthcare IT risk solutions, today announced the expansion of its Cybersecurity Program for Digital Health Innovators. This program now include formal recognition of “Cybersecurity Transparent” pioneers in partnership with KLAS Research, as well as new risk management and cybersecurity advisory services, program maturity analytics, enhancements to cybersecurity best practices, expanded educational content, and branding/marketing program elements for promotional use.

Over the past four years, Censinet has been working with leading healthcare accelerator programs and digital health innovators with an effective set of tools, strategic guidance, and best practices that significantly reduce risks to regulated data, care operations, and patient safety. Inaugural members of the program include MassChallenge HealthTech, Cedars-Sinai Accelerator, KidsX, and TechSpring.

“Together with KLAS Research, Censinet is committed to helping digital health innovators quickly understand their cybersecurity risk posture, identify and close gaps in overall information security program maturity, and continuously monitor and mitigate risks as they occur,” said Ed Gaudet, CEO and Founder of Censinet. “The new additions to our Cybersecurity Program for Digital Health Innovators and ‘Cybersecurity Transparent’ designation enable these entrepreneurs to quickly bring their innovations to market without introducing risk to patient care, data or operations.”

The healthcare industry is adopting new digital health solutions at a record pace as delivery organizations look to improve quality of care, enhance the patient experience, expand patient safety initiatives, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. The pandemic has accelerated the demand for innovation both within healthcare delivery organizations and among those vendors who service them. However, the past 18 months have also shown the increasing vulnerability of all parties involved in patient care as data breaches and ransomware attacks have increased markedly, according to the recent Ponemon Institute study sponsored by Censinet. Full details of this report, The Impact of Ransomware on Healthcare During COVID-19 and Beyond, can be downloaded from: censinet.com/ponemon-report-covid-impact-ransomware.

“Cybersecurity posture is a critical element when evaluating vendors and should be viewed through the same lens as price, value proposition, and customer feedback.  Cybersecurity Transparent is a rigorous process that ensures that healthcare solution providers have critical IT security programs demanded by providers, and accelerates the adoption of innovative and secure solutions via a highly efficient process,” said Adam Gale, President of KLAS.  “Our partnership with Censinet has improved risk postures for both vendors and providers and is helping to drive a more secure healthcare ecosystem.”

At the Censinet HLTH Booth K-514, Censinet and KLAS will recognize the following Cybersecurity Transparent vendors (those vendors exhibiting or attending HLTH will have the option to receive award materials during the event):

Laur, JD., Vice President, Intellectual Property at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. “The Cedars-Sinai Accelerator has partnered with Censinet to assist our cohort of entrepreneurs with education, best practices, cybersecurity risk assessments, and remediation recommendations at no cost to the startup.”
