Data Protection & Security

The overhaul of the US healthcare system has made the management and security of data more critical than ever. HIPAA has long required protection of Protected Health Information (PHI), but in today’s environment of breach notifications with severe fines and penalties for non-compliance, the stakes have never been higher.

Of particular importance is the need for fast and reliable backup solutions. Comport offers services specifically tailored for evolving health information technology requirements that ensure compliance and achieves the protection that our patients expect, and deserve.



  • Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as a Service
  • Cyber Security Risk Assessments
  • Ransomware Protection
  • The need for a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is no longer exclusive to large, multi-national organizations.  Hospitals and healthcare systems are primary targets, and require similar strategic leadership and expert guidance.

    CISO as a Service provides affordable expertise in an environment where CISO salaries are high and CISO availability is low. The CISO can also serve as the HIPAA Security Officer in many cases.  The CISO as a Service provides many benefits including:

    • An expert, unbiased assessment of your current security program
    • An assessment of your risk, compliance and security posture
    • The experience and capacity to align your security efforts and business goals
    • A leader to evaluate your current security team’s skills and effectiveness
    • Monthly deliverables designed to continuously improve your risk posture and enable your business
    • Confidence that in the event of an incident, you’ll have the expertise available to quickly coordinate a response and take necessary actions
  • A series of independent, highly customized deep Security Risk Assessments help uncover and mitigate areas of vulnerability.  Comport and our cyber security partner Harbor Technology Group’s approach is based on industry standard cybersecurity frameworks such as NIST, FFIEC, and CIS CSC.  The Security Risk Assessments include:

    • Infrastructure Security Assessment including backups, archive and DR
    • Mobility/Wireless Security Architecture Assessment
    • Endpoint/Core Virtual Environment Security Assessment
    • Strategic Security Assessment

    Remediation recommendations are customized to the situation, and may include Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s leading interoperable security systems as well as other solutions.  Comport’s Security offerings also include Implementation services.

  • Here’s a scary fact: the healthcare industry accounts for 88% of all ransomware attacks!*

    CIO’s must consider solutions that detect, protect and recover from these attacks when evaluating their organization’s risk assessment. For hospitals and healthcare organizations this means remaining HIPAA compliant as well.

    Together with Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Veeam, Comport now offers an affordable enterprise level solution that recovers PHI damage free and ensures day-to-day operations run smoothly. To learn more, download Counter Ransomware with Comport, HPE and Veeam above.
