SimSpace for healthcare

With advances in modern medicine and technology, healthcare organizations have embraced web-based digital operating models, creating a broad attack surface that is vulnerable to cyberattacks. And with the high value of health records on the black market, healthcare organizations are a common target for malicious actors.

To be competitive in the industry and maintain regulatory compliance, healthcare organizations need their security teams and technology stacks operating at peak performance, which requires continuous assessments to drive growth. In fact, certain regulatory frameworks like HITRUST specifically require firms to incorporate simulated events and exercises for thorough, realistic training.
