OpSus Defend

OpSus Defend Overview

OpSus Defend is a suite of managed security services built to offer organizations protection which adapts to the evolving threats in healthcare. OpSus Defend allows Healthcare IT to add layers of professionally managed security protection and monitoring to their on-premises or cloud-based systems. OpSus Defend takes a recurring approach to systems security. Traditional, one-time “analyze and remediate” services have trouble keeping pace with the evolving threat landscape. All OpSus defend services include recurring checkpoints with your technical and administrative staff to keep you informed on what is happening in your environment as well as tracking remediation efforts. OpSus Defend provides visibility and accountability; that’s the OpSus difference.

Services Include:

  • HIPAA Risk Assessment
  • Vulnerability Threat Management
  • Security Information Event Monitoring
  • Penetration Testing

What information losses does the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) service look for?

The Data Loss Prevention service reports losses to patient demographic information, patient clinical information, unencrypted clinical information, and unencrypted transmission loss. The channel where losses occurred is identified as well (e.g., SMTP, email, etc.).

Which OpSus Defend service is my best defense against ransomware?
