HANYS Marketplace partners with Censinet to transform cyber risk management and protect patient safety and care delivery

Censinet RiskOps™ delivers total automation for third-party risk management to strengthen cybersecurity and protect patient care from lethal cyber threats

BOSTON, MA AND ALBANY, NY — HANYS Marketplace® today announced its partnership with Censinet®. This partnership will bring Censinet RiskOps™ to HANYS member organizations to transform cyber risk management with a fully automated solution for third-party and enterprise risk management.

With ransomware now a direct threat to patient care, providers are scrambling to find affordable, efficient and effective cybersecurity solutions.

Purpose-built for healthcare, Censinet RiskOps is the first and only cloud-based, highly-secure risk exchange for managing cybersecurity. It enables healthcare organizations to collaboratively share and manage cyber risk data to significantly reduce third-party and enterprise risk and protect patient safety from malicious cyber threats.

“As many health systems have learned the hard way, cyber risk is patient risk,” said Ed Gaudet, CEO and founder, Censinet. “With ransomware now a direct threat to patient safety, the time to transform cybersecurity is now. Censinet’s unique, highly-secure risk exchange enables all healthcare industry participants to efficiently and effectively strengthen cybersecurity to protect patient care from sophisticated cyber threats.”

Censinet RiskOps delivers total automation and actionable insights across all third-party and enterprise risk management workflows, processes and operations. With a Digital Risk Catalog™ of over 34,000 vendors and products, automated corrective action plans, real-time portfolio management and board-ready reporting, healthcare organizations can continuously manage and mitigate third-party risk from vendors and products across the entire contract lifecycle, from procurement to renewal and retirement.

Censinet’s automated workflows reduce risk assessment completion times down to less than 10 days, with reassessment times reduced down to less than a few hours — the industry’s fastest solution.

“We are excited to partner with Censinet and offer its solution to our member organizations as providers continue to be targeted by malicious cyberattacks,” said Al Campanella, executive vice president, HANYS Marketplace. “Censinet offers an affordable, effective solution for third-party risk management that brings together providers, payers and vendors to manage and mitigate the cyber risks that threaten care delivery every day across our membership.”

Censinet offers self-assessment and automated action plans for National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) to improve cybersecurity program maturity and offers “freemium” support for the HHS Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices to improve cyber hygiene. Censinet recently conducted a landmark initiative, The Healthcare Cybersecurity Benchmarking Study, co-sponsored by the American Hospital Association and KLAS Research, to establish robust peer benchmarks across NIST CSF and HICP, key cybersecurity performance indicators.
