In 2021, CynergisTek announced Resilience Validation™, an updated approach to its partnership model designed to give clients additional tools to prepare and rehearse for cyber-attacks, and continually validate the effectiveness of their people, processes, and technology. CynergisTek’s managed services help clients meet their short and long-term goals by performing an annual risk assessment to identify gaps and dependent upon the findings and the organization’s objectives, the company’s advisory and validation services are introduced to help organizations improve their cyber-readiness. In CynergisTek’s 2021 annual state of healthcare security and privacy report, organizations who consistently perform annual risk assessments, dedicate budget and resources, and prioritize high risk vulnerabilities have continually improved year over year and scored higher against NIST CSF conformance than those institutions that don’t.
