Welcome To The Forcura Trust Center

Just like delivering patient care, information security in healthcare isn’t a one-person job. Done right, it’s a team endeavor. Whether you’re a provider, a partner, or a third-party vendor, every employee within your organization plays a critical role in protecting patient data every day. If you’re concerned about how your business partners manage the security of your organization’s information, questioning “who can you trust?” is a smart move. Forcura’s workflow management solution has earned the elite HITRUST certification, proving that we follow best-in-class information security procedures. The goal of the Forcura Trust Center is to share best practices and resources that will benefit all of us. As in any team, information security works best when we all work together.


Where healthcare ranks as a targeted industry for cyberattacks


How much cybercrime cost U.S. businesses in 2023, with the amount expected to increase to $452B in 2024.


The average cost of a data breach in healthcare, highest among any business sector

Your business and patients are constantly under threat from cybercriminals

Cyber-attacks often occur downstream of major company exchanges – such as mergers and acquisitions – that may introduce vulnerabilities.

Bad actors are opportunists, and in today’s market shaped by inflation, legislative pressures, and changing consumer demands, hackers know that you may not have your eye on the ball if your organization is engaged in mergers and acquisitions. Indeed, it’s often during these events that cybercriminals seek the weakest link in hopes of tapping into the largest possible volume of patient and other protected data. Having trusted partners, being aware of the latest threats, and using the best resources and practices to safeguard your infrastructure today can make you less vulnerable tomorrow.


Frequently Asked Questions

What other actions can we take to improve our understanding of risk?

Engaging with a third party to review your policies and procedures, the risk assessment and your overall information security program is a good start. Some of the third parties can do much more to help you understand your risk, including conducting vulnerability scans and penetration tests, which can often identify critical holes in your security posture that need to be addressed quickly.


Would you say the cost of reputable, web-based software vendors should be part of the 5 to 15% allocation experts suggest should come out of the budget for security costs?

Things like penetration testing and vulnerability assessments are definitely part of that equation. You could spend 100% of your budget just trying to secure your infrastructure, and that's probably not enough. Really, you're trying to put the money in the right places to get the biggest bang for your buck. And that's how you're going to sell it to the executives.


How much extra security could an organization achieve by eliminating all locally-stored data and putting everything in the hands of a secure cloud solution?

The term “secure cloud solution” is a little bit of a misnomer. There's a shared responsibility to the security for any cloud implementation. If you are not doing your portion of that shared responsibility model, then you're not secure and that cloud is not secure. There are plenty of instances where someone left an S3 bucket publicly exposed, or an RDS database publicly exposed or something like that. It's not Amazon or Azure or Google cloud's fault when that exists, that is on the company. So just because you're in the cloud does not remove your responsibility for securing that infrastructure.


Do you believe the problems facing companies today will ever go away, or will we at least see a decline in threats effecting organizations?

It's a constant game of cat-and-mouse. They're getting more and more sophisticated and it's our job as the good guys to stay in lockstep and be just as sharp. Companies are trying to operate more efficiently. They're trying to be more paperless. They're trying to put information on the internet. They're trying to make things quicker and more available to their their customers. That means data is going online and there's risk associated with that. So unfortunately, I don't think it's going away. If you are a security practitioner, it's job security for you. Just stay on top of it. It's going to get worse, and I don't mean to scare anyone, but it is what it is.
