CyberSecurity & IT Management Risk Assessments

PragSpective leads an in-depth assessment of your systems to identify which areas are vulnerable to attack as well as general shortcoming as it relates to your hardware, software, backups, and more. Our risk assessment analyzes the individual components of your infrastructure as well as management responsibilities for those at the company. From here, we develop a restructured IT strategy based on each area’s level of importance as well as its difficulty and cost to fix.

HIPAA Security Assessments

For healthcare clients, we conduct security assessments to make sure your technology is protecting patient information in accordance with HIPAA guidelines. Our assessments take a comprehensive look at firewalls, data access, authentication, and more to ensure that protected health information (PHI) is secure from external threats. PragSpective also analyzes how well your technology functions regarding HIPAA’s “need to know” policy, where specific employees are only allowed access to certain kinds of patient information. All of this allows us to develop a plan for improvement and ensuring PHI is secure.

Strategy, Goal Setting, Management & Outcomes

Our risk assessments dictate the individual technology strategy, goals, and implementation plan we develop alongside our clients. As your technology advisor, we’re able to give business leaders a better understanding of their IT environment by asking the right questions to those currently responsible for their technology. It results in a clear, actionable plan where roles are defined, responsibilities are assigned, and progress is made to achieve outcomes.
