Hackers are clobbering 
healthcare companies

Don't worry.  Get help from a Virtual CISO Healthcare.
Let's Meet

Did you know...

virtual ciso healthcare 68% medical practices were hacked


Take a minute to search online for the "HIPAA Wall of Shame."  Look at the most recent HIPAA breaches.

You'll see that the reason for most breaches is "Hacking/IT Incident."  A whopping 68% of recent breaches, in fact.  

These were large firms AND small firms that were attacked.


HHS has an 86-point checklist that healthcare organizations are supposed to follow.  It tells you, in detail, what you need to do to protect your business and your patients.

Companies that follow this checklist are safe and HIPAA-compliant.  

Companies that don't follow this checklist end up on the HIPAA Wall of Shame.  


Why are hackers going after both large and small healthcare companies?

Medical records sell for hundreds of dollars on the black market, with some going for as much as $1,000.  

Do the math.  Whether you have 500 records or 50,000 records, that's still a lot of money.  

Hackers will take their time for that amount of money.  

How a Virtual CISO Healthcare can help:

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

Complying with the HHS 86-point checklist is a big project.

We'll help you prioritize what to do first, what to do later, and how to save money.  

We're your accountability partner.

You don't need someone to hand you a 200 page report and then walk away.

That's what a lot of our competitors do.  

We help you build a plan and stick to it.  

Unlimited support.

You can reach out to us anytime.

We provide our Virtual CISO Healthcare clients with unlimited support.  

Whether something goes bump in the night or your hear something scary in the news, we're here for you.  

HIPAA can be a little silly.

HIPAA can be vague, and leaves you with just enough rope to hang yourself.

We'll help you figure out where it makes sense to spend time and money, and where the regulation is just trying to make your life difficult.

It's a marathon, not a sprint.

We form long-term relationships with our clients, and help them to stay safe. 

We're not just showing up once a year.  

We're working with you to make sure your company is safe and healthy.  

You'll sleep better.

Cybersecurity is a lot like healthcare.

You can never be 100% safe, just like you can never guarantee a patient won't get sick.

But by following good hygiene, you can make it a lot more likely your data, your patients, and your practice will be safe.  

Here's what our clients think...

"Adelia Risk is exactly what I needed for my business, I’m in healthcare and protecting PHI is critical. We weren't sure we were set up properly. Adelia Risk made it so we don't have to worry. They took care of our email security, made sure our computers were set up the right way, and even took the time to train our staff on how to be safe, secure, and HIPAA-compliant."

Mark Lescault, 
Grace Barker Health

"The team at Adelia Risk have exceeded my expectations in every way. Besides providing my medical practice a unique and detailed HIPAA environment, they have been responsive to every request we have made as we have grown and expanded our needs. 
I highly recommend Adelia Risk!"

Dr. Scott Werden

Brenda Falls,
Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic

"Adelia Risk’s service is perfect for our business--as a firm that services health and social care companies, we take cybersecurity just as seriously as our clients.

Juliette Price,

"Working with Adelia Risk provides me with peace of mind. Our HIPAA compliant email is properly configured, our PHI is protected, and my staff receives HIPAA and security training. I’m very pleased with their service and how quickly they respond to my questions and requests."

Virtual CISO Healthcare
frequently asked questions

What is a Virtual CISO?

In large organizations, the Chief Information Security Officer, or CISO, is the guru of all things information security. 

They make sure that your cybersecurity goals line up with your business strategy.  They present to board members about cybersecurity. They manage oversight, and figure out what's missing.

Large organizations have had CISOs for years. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are realizing that virtual CISOs can help them too. 

It's kind of like hiring a marketing agency or a fractional CFO. vCISO services hit the ground running. 

You get industry experience without the cost of very high-priced FTE.

What makes you different?

Here's what our vCISO clients say:

1) Our plans are "right-sized" for businesses with 10-300 employees.  Our competitors can charge tens of thousands of dollars per quarter.  

2) No long-term contracts.  Life is too short to work with unhappy clients.  Cancel anytime with 30 days notice.

3) No extra services.  Our prices already include tools that other vCISO firms make you buy separately.

4) We're not boring.  Information security people can be awfully dry.  Not us.  

What does the Virtual CISO service cost?

Eleventy-billion dollars.

Just kidding - our price varies based on the size and complexity of your organization and the urgency of the project. It's tough to quote a price without having a conversation first, even if it's just an email conversation.  Fill out the form above to start the conversation.  

I have fewer than 10 employees - can you help me?


We do have some clients smaller than 10 employees.  The ones who get value out of working with us already have a relationship with a good I.T. firm, and they want our help making sure that they're doing everything they should.  

Do you think we might be a
good match?

We help over 100 of the best financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing companies across the U.S. with their cybersecurity.
