Patients – and the law – demand that you protect highly sensitive information from every possible threat. But in-house security options just can’t keep pace with rapidly growing risks. After all, anti-virus software won’t stop someone from taking medical records. A firewall can’t help retrieve a stolen laptop. Just think about…

  • Patients who are minors or under guardianship – a breach of this data requires special handling
  • Patients who are aged or disabled – this group may need additional help understanding what has happened and what to do

And of course, you’re also on the line to protect the confidential information of another valued group: your staff and employees.

That’s why more of today’s healthcare leaders turn to Kroll Fraud Solutions. With industry-leading experience, Kroll knows how to manage the most sensitive breach for any audience – and delivers unmatched data breach preparedness and data breach recovery services.
