The need to secure your sensitive patient data
At MOD1, we recognise you as an owner or manager of a small to medium-sized medical practice who wants to safeguard your patients’ sensitive information, protect your business against online threats such as ransomware and comply with the revised Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).
You can accomplish this by implementing a series of technical and organisational measures that satisfy the Swiss Medical Association’s (FMH) minimum standards for information security in medical practices.
The challenge you face is that you lack the resources, specialist expertise, and experience to accurately assess your current information security posture whilst focusing on your core business of treating patients.
If unresolved, this will place your medical practice at heightened risk of a data breach, loss of revenue, damaged reputation, operational downtime and legal liability.
The MOD1 health care provider security assessment service
It is our firm belief that every medical practice can meet the FMH requirements and maintain compliance with the more stringent privacy requirements of the revised Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).
Still, we appreciate that embarking on an initiative to implement the numerous recommendations can seem daunting, especially when your organisation lacks the relevant internal expertise to make an accurate assessment of the shortcomings of your existing information security capabilities.
That’s why we created the MOD1 Health Care Provider Security Assessment Service, a comprehensive risk assessment that provides the following benefits:
- provides a detailed assessment of the security of the practice's IT environment
- identifies gaps and potential for improvement
- provides information on critical problem areas
- highlights FMH requirements that you have successfully implemented
- increases staff awareness of information security and data privacy best practices
- can reduce your cyber-liability insurance premium by up to 30%
What are the deliverables?
The security assessment culminates in a comprehensive report highlighting deficiencies and providing recommendations on measures that you need to meet the minimum requirements of the FMH standard and align with the requirements of the revised FADP.
You also benefit from a management presentation that walks through the content of the report to help provide guidance around the issues observed and advice on the cost effective implementation of additional controls, as necessary.
Unlike other providers of cybersecurity risk management services, our consultants are professionally accredited and accustomed to working in the highly regulated healthcare sector.
We appreciate that no two organisations are the same, so we tailor our services to each client’s internal cybersecurity knowledge, capabilities, size, complexity, risk appetite, and budget.
