Canaudit’s extensive experience in the healthcare industry encompasses hospitals, health plans, laboratories, private practices and some of the major healthcare systems serving the nation. We understand the liabilities associated with patient health information and the compliance requirements mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services, including HIPAA and HITECH.

The amount of litigation settlements resulting from HIPAA violations underscores the serious risk associated with weak networks and highlights the need for IT audits. At Canaudit, our proprietary penetration testing tools assist health organizations in uncovering even the most subtle vulnerabilities, allowing them to mitigate risk and deliver their services with confidence.

Our unique network penetration strategies help healthcare industry clients not only protect the well-being of their patients, but also safeguard patient privacy from cyber attack. Our strategies result in robust reports that uncover weaknesses that other information technology audit firms often miss.

Regulatory standards concerning the healthcare sector may include PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA and HITECH. Related security frameworks may include ISO/IEC 27001 or 27002, NIST SP800-53 and HITRUST CSF.
