Wombat’s solution is a bundled package, offering CyberStrength knowledge assessments, ThreatSim simulated phishing attack tool, interactive training modules, and security awareness materials. "We have always had clients in the health care space, but we put together this program because the healthcare sector has reported some of the largest number of data breaches over the past few years and the root cause is often human error," Amy Baker, vice president of marketing at Wombat Security Technologies, told eWEEK. "This isn’t just a phishing problem either, we know that a few of those breaches happened because healthcare workers did not secure their laptops properly." Baker explained that from working with their health care customers, Wombat also knows that their methodology has been very effective in reducing incidents in their organizations because of the ability to assess their staff on a wide variety of topics such as phishing, physical security and PHI, and then automatically deliver training in short, interactive training modules.
"Our integrated platform also makes it easy for a health care security professionals to build a program that reinforces this knowledge all year long which is very important for retention," she said.
