For organizations using data and cloud services across multi-tenant environments, Guidehouse helps reduce cyber risks and prepare effective incident responses

These solutions, when not properly managed in the delivery environment, can compromise the overall cybersecurity of the enterprise. That could affect patient safety

Guidehouse Helps Mitigate Cloud Cybersecurity Risks

While cloud technologies have provided organizations with powerful tools and decreased IT costs, they have also increased the potential risks and threats to an enterprise’s IT infrastructure. Cloud services have dynamically changed the cyberattack surface by increasing the organization’s reliance on third parties with differential cybersecurity capabilities and processes.

An organization’s existing cyber technology generally struggles to integrate these services into the company’s existing infrastructure, security processes, and technology. But Guidehouse’s cybersecurity experts have the necessary experience working across multiple types of platforms and service capacities to successfully evaluate and integrate an enterprise’s cybersecurity practices within their cloud platforms
