The Client

I am the VP of tech and operations for Emerging Therapy Solutions, a healthcare service provider. We provide coordination of transplant services from traditional organs to bone marrow. We are also breaking into the new gene therapy transplant market, helping get those services into the hands of patients that need them.

The Challenge

In the healthcare space, we have to keep everything secure to protect patient’s data. We were looking for help creating a baseline annual security review process.

The Approach

FRSecure provides cybersecurity and testing services. First, they helped with our annual security review. This is a comprehensive review of everything related to our business, including policies and procedures. Their team also performed an internal scan and audit of our systems, reporting on the maturity level of our infrastructure. They helped us create a roadmap where we can track progress reports on security compliance. Next, they provided recommendations for what they viewed as areas of weakness. They also provided a rating and an explanation of their rating scales. This showed us how we rank against norms and standards and where we should be. The team also ran an external penetration test against our public facing audits. They scanned and tested the security of those systems. Then, the FRSecure team provided reporting on any vulnerabilities they found through those tests and recommendations to remedy them. Finally, they run quarterly internal scans.

What is the team composition?

I work with three members of the FRSecure team, including Christy (Client Success Manager), Victoria (Security Analyst), and Joshua (Associate Analyst).
