Coalfire achieves vanguard status for healthcare cybersecurity consulting services


Coalfire, a provider of cybersecurity risk management and compliance services, has achieved The ALM Vanguard status from ALM Intelligence. ALM Intelligence, known for its research in the management consulting sector, named Coalfire a Vanguard Leader in the firm's new report, Consulting to Public and Private Healthcare 2015: Cybersecurity.

It said Coalfire demonstrated market-leading depth in cyber risk capabilities and a meaningful breadth of services across a broad spectrum of healthcare risk management needs. In the report, Coalfire was recognized for its strong capability ratings across cybersecurity IT and data management, governance, compliance, healthcare processes and analytics.

“Coalfire is honored to be recognized as one of only seven firms, out of 24 firms that were assessed in the healthcare cybersecurity consulting report, which qualified for the The ALM Vanguard status,” said Andrew Hicks, healthcare and life sciences practice director at Coalfire. Coalfire provides cybersecurity for covered entities and business associates in the healthcare ecosystem, providing a full suite of risk management and compliance services designed to improve an organization’s security posture and protect its data.

“Our resource-challenged clients are looking for us to provide the experience they may have internally, but also to bring the invaluable external view of the world,” Hicks added.
