The massive market shift from on-premise services to the cloud rolls on. And for the healthcare industry, a decision to jump on board with this kind of migration is more complex than simply choosing a cloud provider. Yet in order to stay competitive in a world of resilient, agile, and rapidly accessible infrastructure and interoperable data, healthcare providers, device manufacturers, prescription drug companies and many others are driven to pursue new and different storage and hosting solutions.

For the majority of organizations, regardless of size, any mention of the word ‘cybersecurity’ can lead to some serious anxiety. Whether that anxiety is the result of a lack of general awareness, limited internal expertise, absence of a response plan, restricted budgets, or a myriad of other triggers, there is no doubt that the complex web of cyber best practices can be daunting.
To help calm this overwhelming reality, many business leaders will turn to one of several existing cybersecurity frameworks as a starting place. These frameworks provide guidance around managing risk, foster improved communications, allow for scalability in application, and can support recruitment and hiring of cyber talent. For this blog post the EmberSec team digs in on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to share how it can be leveraged to improve your overall cybersecurity strategy. We chose to focus this blog specifically on the NIST Framework due to our D.o.D. and government heritage, rich experience working with it, and due cause how it takes a threat-based approach to cybersecurity.
