Healthcare Services

Securing Personal Health Information, PHI,  is more important today than ever – and it requires more than having patients sign a HIPAA form. Protecting confidential patient information requires a comprehensive security solution built around strong policies, regular risk assessments and on-going employee training.  Just to name a few. This is especially true as hospitals and healthcare providers, insurers and care facilities transition to electronic health records and allow an increasing number of workers/third parties to remotely access patient personally identifiable health information.

Thanks to an ever-growing list of regulations, many carrying substantial fines and penalties, a data breach exposing PHI can bring considerable disruption, if not failure, to unprepared organizations. The most notable regulations include: Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, (HIPAA); Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, (HITECH); European Union Data Protection Directive, (EUDPD) and the UK Data Protection Act.

Benefits of Risk Based Security’s Approach

Security Intelligence Reports

Security Intelligence Reports offers organizations a quarterly report that highlights the global trends in information security incidents along with lessons learned and recommendations. A subscription to Security Intelligence Reports provides organizations with a glimpse into the most current information security breaches and the potential impact on their operation.


YOURCISO is aimed at helping organizations that do not have security resources on staff by providing access to security intelligence and the right expertise on an as needed basis delivered through a SaaS model. All services are fulfilled by an experienced security professional with the objective to assist organizations with the planning and management of their information security and risk management programs.

Risk Assessment

Risk assessment is the foundation for building a comprehensive Information Security Program that adequately protects the confidentiality, integrity and availability of an organization’s information assets. Risk Based Security employs a standard assessment methodology and approach based on the guidelines in ISO/IEC 27001:2005, ISO 31000:2009 and NIST SP 800-30 to ensure a consistent and high value result.

Security Policies

Documented security policies are the very foundation of an organization’s security program. Employees need to understand management’s expectations in regards to information security in order to have any chance of doing the right things. Risk Based Security’s “Policy Toolkits” provide easy to customize policy documents appropriate for the small business looking for the bare minimum policies and procedures to the mature organization seeking certification to ISO/IEC 27001:2005.


One of the best ways to reduce the risk to an organization’s information assets is to institute company-wide security-awareness training. Our training initiatives include links to security awareness website(s) and security awareness, risk assessment and ISO/IEC 27001 presentations.

Network Vulnerability Assessments

The overall objective of a Vulnerability Assessment is to scan, investigate, analyze and report on the level of risk associated with any vulnerabilities discovered on public, internet-facing devices and to provide your organization with appropriate mitigation strategies. The Risk Based Security Vulnerability Assessment methodology has been designed to comprehensively identify, classify and analyze known vulnerabilities in order to recommend the right mitigation actions.

Incident Response

Everything we do is focused on helping organizations avoid a security incident. However, in today’s environment every organization needs to be prepared for dealing with a data breach. Each client organization will have access to incident response planning documents as well as a security advisor for a 30 minute consultation in case of a breach.

ISO/IEC 27001

Risk Based Security provides customized training, security assessments, security program audits and gap analysis as well as pre-certification consulting services to both protect organizations with best practice security controls and to prepare them for a smooth ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification audit.
