New Health IT Security & Risk Management White Paper Released By Cyber Expert Proposes Broader Framework

Catapult Consultants’ Chief Technology Officer Offers Health Leaders a New Way to Identify and Manage Technology Risks in Light of New National Standards

Arlington, VA (February 24, 2014)—Catapult Consultants, LLC, a leading healthcare solutions firm, announced today that its leading cybersecurity expert and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), John Kimmins, released a White Paper to help healthcare executives consider new ways to manage technology risks posed in healthcare environments.  Titled “Evolving Healthcare Technology & Risks: The Importance of Risk Management Programs in Healthcare Security”, its release coincides with the opening of the Health Information Management Society Symposium (HIMSS 2014-Booth #5579) in Orlando, Florida.

Kimmins, a world-leading cybersecurity expert, offers a comprehensive approach to defending data across the healthcare enterprise. From point-of-care and business operations, to the potential risks posed by unprotected medical devices and instruments, Kimmins proposes a risk management framework—including the latest national standards—which every health care leader should consider.

In his 41 years of experience, Kimmins has served clients in Intelligence, Defense, Energy, Telecommunications, and Financial Services. His professional focus is in developing cybersecurity solutions and services and the evolution towards next generation networks.

“For over a decade, Catapult Consultants has helped leading healthcare organizations solve their most complex and sensitive security challenges,” said William M. Senich, CEO of Catapult Consultants.

“The threat environment is constantly changing and presents a prominent challenge,” says Kimmins.  In his white paper, Kimmins cites the intriguing findings of such global entities as Verizon, Hewlett-Packard and Carnegie Mellon University, as sources of Security Research and Data Breach Investigations.

Catapult’s isolation and containment technologies provide secure connectivity with advanced protection to prevent identity theft, loss of sensitive data, phishing, and similar threats associated with virtual networking and browser-based medical operations.
