Information Security Transformation case study

Client's Challenge

A $3B+ mid-sized health care system with more than 20,000 employees recognized the importance of maturing their information security program after commissioning an independent information security assessment where they were compared against their peers in both the healthcare and commercial space. Upon completion of the assessment, the Board of Directors mandated that the information security program reach a significantly higher maturity level which would then strengthen their reputation, lessen the likelihood and impact of a security breach and establish a strong foundation to build on.
