AGS Meets Highest Cybersecurity Requirements
AGS Health among early participants to meet KLAS/Censinet Cybersecurity Transparent Initiative requirements
OLYPHANT, Pa., May 17, 2021 — As cyber-attacks increase dramatically in healthcare, AGS Health was among the first 10% of healthcare service firms to participate in the KLAS/Censinet Cybersecurity Transparent initiative. This new initiative has enabled AGS Health to reveal its excellent cybersecurity preparations in a safe manner to all current and potential partners. Through this initiative, all participating healthcare provider leaders can see high-level metrics for cybersecurity preparedness across all participating firms and vendors.
“Cybersecurity preparedness has always been of the utmost importance to AGS Health. Having immediately met all of the requirements validates the efforts and investments we’ve made to date,” said Thomas Thatapudi, Chief Technology Officer for AGS Health.
“The courage of AGS Health and other early firms in this initiative is really pioneering,” reported Adam Gale, CEO of KLAS. “KLAS and Censinet have opened this opportunity to all healthcare IT and services firms at no cost, but only 10% to date have chosen to participate. We feel the metrics validate that those who participated were generally the firms that were prepared and were ready to stand up and communicate that preparedness to the market. We expect their efforts will set a new standard in the industry for others to follow.”
