Who We Serve

Rural and Critical Access Hospitals

The American Hospital Association chose Critical Insight to be a preferred cybersecurity provider for The Critical Insight Healthcare Security Program including Managed Detection Response, Vulnerability Scanning, Incident Preparedness, and HIPAA Risk Assessment.


We Know the Challenges You're Facing

Implement enterprise-grade solutions, expertise, and practices to reduce risk, satisfy compliance, and ultimately provide more secure care.

Limited resources 

Rural and critical access hospitals typically have small IT budgets and teams as compared to larger health systems making it harder for you to invest in modern cybersecurity tools and training. 

Legacy systems

Upgrading outdated software or operating systems can be cost-prohibitive, which makes continuous vulnerability scanning and patching critical, but knowing what, when, and how to fix can be complex.

Compliance challenges

You need to comply with regulations covering patient privacy and data security but decentralized systems, fewer security specialists, and lack of security awareness training for employees make it tough.


Cybercriminals know you are more likely to pay ransoms quickly to restore disrupted systems. They also know a HIPAA violation and fine from a breach can be catastrophic, adding to their leverage. 

Unsecured devices

Connected medical devices like ventilators, infusion pumps, and telemetry systems introduce security vulnerabilities which make device security and network segmentation critical to maintaining security.

On-going education

Security training around strong passwords, reporting suspicious activity, avoiding phishing attempts (and more) are critical, but due to resource constraints can be difficult for you to deliver.

“As a smaller hospital, we do what we can to secure the network, but there’s no way we could be 24x7 without Critical Insight. They help us morning, noon, and night and I can sleep at night knowing they are there for us. I know I can call them with any question and they will get me an answer.”
