FREMONT, CA: Transparency entails bringing disparate parts of the security business together to achieve a broader purpose of protecting technology. Censinet and KLAS Research honored EXL, a leading data analytics and digital operations and solutions firm, as a Cybersecurity Transparent Leader today.

Censinet, a leading provider of risk information technology (IT) management solutions for the healthcare industry, and KLAS, a leading healthcare industry research and insights firm, have teamed up to develop a set of standardized best practices and benchmarks for assessing healthcare industry cybersecurity practices. Leaders are chosen by comparing performance against the five most common cybersecurity risks and the ten cybersecurity practices that address those threats, as defined in the HHS 405(d) Aligning Health Care Industry Security Approaches Program's healthcare-specific approach to cybersecurity.

“Healthcare third-party vendors, like the providers they support, are constantly confronting cybersecurity risk and need to stay vigilant on industry best practices for proactive protection," said Cormac Miller, Censinet President. “Cybersecurity Transparent Leaders like EXL have demonstrated a clear pattern of doing just that, and we are proud to recognize their rigorous approach to safeguarding against data breaches that can be devastating to an organization and its clients."

The Cybersecurity Transparent Leaders were unveiled at the HIMSS22 Global Health and Exhibition Conference earlier this month in Orlando, Florida.

“The healthcare industry is constantly changing, and with these pivots come new threats to data privacy and security," said Sam Meckey, Executive Vice President and Business Head at EXL Health. “We take pride in incorporating leading cybersecurity practices into sustainable data-driven solutions that help put our customers minds at ease."
