Medical practices can sleep a bit easier thanks to a new partnership between Havoc Shield and Strategic Radiology.

With the growth of cyberattacks in the healthcare sector, radiology practices increasingly face heightened risks of data breaches and ransomware attacks. 

In fact, according to a recent healthcare cybersecurity report more than 25% of ransomware attacks directly impact patient care. For technology company Havoc Shield, making cybersecurity simple for enterprises is core to the company.  

Now, the organization is announcing a new partnership with Strategic Radiology to better support medical practices.

National coalition of radiology practices

Strategic Radiology is a national coalition of privately owned radiology practices representing more than 1700 radiologists that have come together to improve quality, gain operational efficiencies, and innovate the future of radiology’s private practice model. 

The organization established the nation’s first radiology-specific PSO listed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and also provides its member groups support through shared savings via a group purchasing program, strategic partnerships, and proprietary products and services.

The latest partnership with Havoc Shield means the coalition now has access to the technology startup’s comprehensive cybersecurity suite with exclusive pricing, improving their ability to protect sensitive patient data and maintain robust cyber defenses.

Havoc Shield’s award winning program will help Strategic Radiology members implement and manage a HIPAA-compliant set of security controls, including vulnerability detection, employee training, and incident response planning, among other areas.

Said Brian Fritton, Founder and CEO of Havoc Shield, “Cybersecurity is a critical component of modern healthcare operations, and the need for robust protection has never been more important.”

“We are excited to partner with Strategic Radiology to provide their members with the cybersecurity resources and tools necessary to keep patient data safe and keep practices out of the headlines,” added the executive.
