There over 6,000 hospitals and over 20,000 other healthcare organizations in the United States, who are now increasingly the target of cyber attackers. Key facts impacting the Health Industry:
- On average 58 cyberattacks monthly
- On average $9.23 million is cost of a data breach

- For small organizations (1 -10 physicians or 1-50 beds hospital), minimally 22 controls
- For medium and large organizations (over 11 physicians or over 51 beds hospital), minimally 72 controls
CyberCatch’s innovative Healthcare Compliance Manager solution enables all healthcare organizations to cost-effectively comply with the HICP. CyberCatch’s solution comprises of:
- Workflow engine for compliance risk assessment
- All prescribed controls organized by domains
