Mitigating risk is a priority for every organization. However, identifying risks and understanding their impact is not simple. In many cases, this is an area of expertise that is beginning to overrun the typical boundaries of IT production, particularly in healthcare.
The risks are dynamic. And while the known risks—missed compliance, natural disasters, viruses, hardware crashes, software corruption, etc.—provide everyone with an ongoing challenge, no one yet knows what the next wave of security demands will bring.
Kodiak will never claim to have the ability to eliminate IT risk; no one should ever do so. But Kodiak does have a rich experience reducing risk by using HIPAA and SOC compliant datacenters, implementing appropriate security controls, controlling access to facilities and systems, running daily backups (encrypted), building in layers of system redundancies, updating and patching systems, control management, antivirus and system monitoring, etc. Best of all for our customers, this is all part of a proactive, expanding practice for Kodiak.
