In recognition of the escalating threats to patient data, the organization has been working to improve security and enhance compliance standards.

Unlike many healthcare organizations, the leadership of Mercy Health recognize that threats to patients’ data source from many fronts, both internal and external. Focusing on threats from within the organization is of equal importance to defending against external threats.

Mercy Health has built a dedicated team tasked with defending the organization against the many cyberthreats faced by healthcare organizations. FairWarning serves as a trusted member of that team, facilitating Mercy Health’s efforts to strengthen security and guard against all modern threats to patient privacy.

“They’re really interested in breaching human resource systems like Lawson and PeopleSoft. Because if they have that data, they have everything.”

“You have to take a hard look at the security risks that your employees represent.”

“Putting together this team ensured that we had the appropriate contacts and security alliance in place for privacy, corporate compliance, and security.”
