Healthcare has become a top target for malicious actors bent on profiting from cyberattacks.
Ransomware events and other breaches have become commonplace for healthcare entities and organizations are often underprepared to deal with the magnitude of impact to the business from cyber events.

We chose Meditology mainly for their demonstrated knowledge and understanding of HIPAA, ARRA/HITECH and established security standards.
They were unfailingly professional throughout the information gathering and data gathering processes, kept to their timeline and verified the results that they found. The reports produced were accurate and easy to understand, with appropriate benchmarking to other health care organizations and the security industry as a whole. Most importantly, they provided concrete and achievable suggestions to help mitigate the risks identified.

Meditology worked hand in hand with our existing teams to perform a thorough analysis.
Meditology leads security-related events in the area. After hearing their expertise we decided to utilize their services for one of our annual risk assessments. Meditology worked hand in hand with our existing teams to perform a thorough analysis. I was impressed with their reviews of even our remote locations to not only conduct interviews but to verify what was truly in practice. Meditology conducted regular meetings with the security team to ensure timelines were on schedule and that we had a mutual understanding of the findings and status. I’ve worked with many companies over the years on these assessments and Meditology is not a group that just checks the boxes. Meditology has an intelligent staff that is up to date on the current regulations.
They have deep conversations on what is needed and why. They help you achieve your goals by aligning where you are today with where you want to be in the future and setting a course.
I am glad we decided to work with Meditology and create a partnership that aligns with our interests.

Meditology was nothing but professional from start to finish for the project with McLaren.
We outsource our IT services and they worked closely with us, and the vendor, to collect required documentation, they accepted input from both sides and explained their conclusions once findings were verified. The team's project time lines, status reports, and weekly follow up calls kept us all on track for a timely completion. Meditology addressed the significant risk areas in a straightforward manner without making respondents feel defensive, and they freely offered information about industry best practice. The team has definitely won the confidence of our Executive group and expect we will be asking Meditology for more work in the future.
