Another major concern is the expanding use of mobile devices and networks by healthcare workers. Improper usage can have various consequences, including fines, damage to an organization’s reputation, and most importantly, a failure to protect patients’ rights. 1SEO enables healthcare providers to harness the potential rewards of mobile devices while safeguarding them from potential security implications.
1SEO uses a multi-pronged approach when dealing with and preventing these types of attacks. The company implements defensive strategies, like training end-users on best practices, ensuring security measures at every potential access point, and implementing automated defense systems that monitor networks and activity, 24/7/365. “We even employ machine learning tools to detect and analyze potentially suspicious behavior to prevent hacking attempts, stopping them dead in their tracks,” Fcasni adds.
In one instance, a biotech organization specializing in clinical-stage pharmaceuticals which, following their acquisition, struggled to deal with a confluence of technological inadequacies. This organization faced a slew of problems—from compliance conflicts to an extraordinary lack of information security. 1SEO got to work honing in on security and compliance, reaching out to managers and executives to recover and reset access to sensitive information. “We equipped them with technical issue reporting protocols, and a list of secondary passwords to allow them to recover and reset access immediately if needed. We also provided them with assistance when they upgraded their systems earlier this year,” adds Fcasni. With 1SEO’s expertise in place, the client successfully recovered and became a protected, secure, and thriving biotech organization. Today, the company continues to work with this client to ensure 21CFR part 11 compliance.
The advantage for healthcare companies working with 1SEO is its dedicated team that is experienced in the biotech and healthcare sectors. Having a deep understanding of healthcare organizations’ mission, the company adopts client’s objectives as its own. Additionally, the company holds significant experience working with federal regulatory agencies and is well-versed in best practices to ensure compliance. 1SEO is consistently growing its team in order to meet the demands of expanding client base. In addition to gaining new team members, the company is always testing the latest technology through its partnerships with major software vendors and finding opportunities for clients to take advantage of these new technologies.
