“With the current average financial loss per data breach at $9.23 million and climbing, and 17% of cyberattacks leading to serious patient injury or harm, it is essential for AGS Health to protect the data entrusted to us by our customers. Maintaining our Cybersecurity Transparent designation is an important demonstration to our customers that their trust in us is not misplaced.”

Adds AGS Health General Counsel Prasad PK: “We are proud to have our focus on ensuring data security recognized with this prestigious Cybersecurity Transparent designation. Demonstrating that we have met the rigorous standards for data protection as defined by the industry’s leading experts is an important aspect of AGS Health’s dedication to providing excellent customer service.”

The Cybersecurity Transparent program enables healthcare IT vendors and services firms to improve their overall risk and security profile by driving greater trust and transparency to thousands of healthcare providers. The voluntary assessment evaluates six categories that measure and reflect the effectiveness of an organization’s cybersecurity processes: network security; data protection; identity and access management; threat and incident response; legal and regulatory; and resiliency. AGS Health retained its top grade of “Mature” across all six categories.
