BitLyft provides managed SIEM cybersecurity services tailored to the specific needs of the Health Care industry.

 

As the Health Care industry transforms it faces the large task of protecting patient safety and confidentiality in an environment where cyber attacks are increasing. Add to this the reality of a changing regulatory compliance landscape and the task evolves from large to daunting. This is where BitLyft steps in, we walk with you through all your cybersecurity and compliance issues making sure that you can easily meet and exceed compliance regulations while also keeping your environment safe against external and internal threats. 

Bitlyft will install and manage SIEM on your network and put in place Health Care Compliance Modules that provide a comprehensive security framework tailored to your needs. This includes AI rules and alerts, holistic network visibility, and reporting capabilities that help you meet compliance regulations. 

 

BitLyft Health Care Compliance & Cybersecurity Capabilities:

  • Install & Manage SIEM
  • Collect and parse data from a healthcare IT environment
  • Meet HIPAA, HITECH, and MU requirements
  • Significantly reduce organizational risk
  • Gain 24x7 real-time enterprise-wide visibility
  • Generate reports to document compliance

 

How BitLyft helps you meet Compliance Regulations

To meet compliance regulations Health Care organizations are required to have the patient’s records easily accessible to a patient’s medical team, the patient, and all other relevant parties, while simultaneously protecting this data. Bityft installs a platform that works with Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) providers like Epic. 

This package provides greater visibility into EHR software with:

  • Real-time visibility and reporting on:
    • inappropriate access or access attempts to patient medical records
    • inappropriate attempts to record or download patient medical records
    • All users and systems trying to access EHR (appropriate & inappropriate)
  • The context of users accessing patient records
  • Logic/Reason behind the attempted access of medical records.

 

More than compliance, real, proactive, managed cybersecurity.

While compliance is a driving force behind acquiring certain cybersecurity measures it is important to recognize the real dangers lurking in the cyber environment and how these can be extremely damaging. May of 2017 can be seen as a catalyst of sorts when 65 hospitals in the UK were shut down due to cyber attacks. These attacks affected not just computers but storage refrigerators and MRI machines as well. Before this attack hospitals enjoyed relative obscurity but now the effect of it has been that of blood in the water. 

In response to this “white hat hackers” were used to test and discover just how vulnerable hospitals were to attack and the results are gripping. Anything that is plugged in whether it is connected to the internet or not can be vulnerable.

 

Read this real-life example of white hat hackers demonstrating vulnerabilities:

“For their demonstration, Tully and Dameff staged a massive cyberhack at the medical school’s simulation center using three critical mock patients, without the doctors involved in the simulation knowing what was about to happen. One mock patient had a simulated calcium channel overdose from a hacked bedside infusion pump, another’s pacemaker was made to malfunction, and in another, an insulin pump delivered an unauthorized dose — all by security researchers and doctors simulating these devices being manipulated.”

In these examples, the doctors were able to save the lives of these mock patients, but what was made extremely evident was just how fragile the cyber ecosystem is right now. 

This is not an attempt to elicit fear, just to bring home the reality that as a medical provider you must have a dedicated cybersecurity team who is monitoring your network and able to see threats like these as they press and prod a network, stopping them before they gain access. Let Bitlyft partner with you to secure your network.
