New York, NY, USA, 15 December 2016—Deloitte is pleased to announce that ALM Intelligence has named Deloitte a global leader in Healthcare Cybersecurity Consulting. In the report entitled Consulting to Public and Private Healthcare 2015: Cybersecurity, ALM Intelligence notes, “HC cybersecurity strategy consulting is experiencing a steady uptick in demand as security strategies elevate from IT and compliance siloes to the HC boardroom.”

Specifically for Deloitte, ALM Intelligence highlights, “Deloitte brings the most comprehensive depth and breadth of Healthcare cybersecurity consulting capabilities and approaches the need as a major element of Healthcare strategic risk.”

“Deloitte’s focused investment has deepened our Life Science and Health Care Cyber Risk capability, a fact that ALM's report validates,” said Mark Ford, Life Science and Health Care Cyber Risk Industry Leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We continue to invest to bring solutions our clients demand, such as our newly announced Healthcare Cyber Hub."

The report lays out the opportunities and challenges for Healthcare cybersecurity consulting providers focusing on market trends, client spending forecasts, and the provider landscape. The report “examines how consulting firms are developing distinct capabilities and competencies to serve evolving information security needs for Healthcare clients.”

Additional Findings
  • "Across our capability ratings, the firm achieved strong and very strong scores that reflect a broad set of offerings to meet HC cybersecurity needs in 2015 within both private and public sector enterprises."
  • "Deloitte’s cybersecurity platform of “Secure. Vigilant. Resilient” manifests in taking both proactive and reactive protections, with ongoing monitoring of HIPAA/ HITECH compliance and remaining “vigilant” on aspects of cybersecurity with “risk sensing” capabilities within the organization."
  • "Within each HC sector, Deloitte addresses specific threat landscapes with deep regulatory compliance focus, lending to its depth and breadth of capability. For Healthcare specifically, Deloitte offers EHR security and privacy services, Health Information Exchange security and privacy, and HITRUST risk assessment and risk management."
  • "Deloitte recently brought together an industry framework for payers through America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) to support a common approach for more unified and proactive cybersecurity for all HC payers. The firm’s HITRUST certification and unique CISO Transition Lab offers strategic value to HC organizations, as these workshops help coach CISO’s and expand well-rounded business acumen."
