Field Effect launches cyber security program to protect healthcare communities.

The increased risk of cyber-attack has become a serious problem around the world as governments and organizations – including healthcare institutions – have found themselves in relatively new territory as a result of their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Officials have reported that cyber criminals are actively targeting and attempting to take advantage of any weaknesses that may be a result of the rapid expansion of technology resources.

To support and protect healthcare and education facilities during this critical time, Field Effect has launched a new initiative, Field Effect Cares. The initiative provides Covalence MDR coverage (Cloud, Network, Endpoint) to qualifying healthcare organizations at reduced cost. The Field Effect team also reviews the threat surface or footprint of qualified medical facilities for a high-level report on their vulnerabilities.

“Many organizations critical to the health and wellbeing of the country have given access to technologies that allow for work from home programs, telemedicine, and remote work. Yet, not all these organizations have the staff or budget to validate the security of these new internet facing assets, leaving them at risk of compromise or denial of service,” said Andrew Milne, Chief Revenue Officer, Field Effect. “Unfortunately, these vulnerabilities, if not identified and addressed, can have repercussions now and in the future.”

“We created Field Effect Cares to help the healthcare community during this critical time as they work so hard to care for those who need it most,” said Matt Holland, Founder, CEO, CTO, Field Effect. “This is our way of helping the organizations and people who are working so hard to protect us.”
