With cyber threats on the rise, particularly in the healthcare space, the need for robust security measures has never been more urgent. Recognizing this imperative, Zip Security and Ambience Healthcare have joined forces to offers strategic insight and tactical guidance for healthcare systems to navigate the growing cybersecurity risks associated with third-party vendors in healthcare.

As cyberattacks targeting healthcare systems continue to escalate, safeguarding patient data and ensuring uninterrupted access to care have become essential components of risk management. Our white paper offers practical recommendations to help healthcare organizations bolster their security posture and mitigate potential risks associated with third-party vendors.

Josh Zweig, our CEO and Co-Founder, recognizes the importance of resilience in healthcare systems and shared his thoughts:

"The last year has shown us the importance of building resilience into this web, but it remains difficult. We're thrilled to team up with our friends at Ambience Healthcare to equip healthcare organizations with the right strategies to overcome this challenge."

The white paper delves into essential protocols for enhancing cybersecurity in healthcare, including:

  • Technical controls and operational practices to mitigate cyber risks effectively while ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data.
  • Vendor evaluation criteria, emphasizing the importance of security culture, compliance frameworks, and commitment to cybersecurity best practices in vendor partnerships.
  • Proactive cybersecurity strategies tailored to integrate vendors into organizational security practices, aligning with the evolving threat landscape and technological advancements.

Josh Dong, Head of Security at Ambience Healthcare, underscored the significance of robust security measures, particularly in the healthcare sector:

""The welcome success of new category-defining healthcare tech is a call to our industry for new playbooks to vet healthcare products. We're incredibly fortunate to have the technical DNA at our team’s core that allows us to execute with Zip and stay ahead of the very material threats in the space. Especially with products deeply integrated into patient medical record systems, health systems need extra sensitivity to all facets of a vendor's security posture,"
