July 27, 2016


Chapter Themes Include Building Effective Programs, Conducting Risk Analysis, and Best Practices

SAN ANTONIO, TX – July 27, 2016 — Delta Risk LLC, a global provider of cyber security and risk management services, announced today that Joseph S. Abrenio, Vice President of Commercial Sales, and Christopher B. Evans, Vice President of Solutions, along with Quarles & Brady Partner Jennifer L. Rathburn, have co-authored “Cyber Health Crisis: How to Manage the Risk,” a chapter in the Health Law Handbook (2016 Edition), published by Thomson Reuters and edited by Alice G. Gosfield.

The 28th edition of the book covers four themes: payment, fraud and abuse, data issues, and operational issues, set in the context of a quickly changing healthcare system. The nearly 100-page chapter co-authored by Abrenio, Evans, and Rathburn includes insight on:

  • Healthcare industry threat actors
  • Building an effective cyber security program
  • Applicable laws, frameworks, and guidance
  • Conducting a risk analysis
  • How to handle a data security event
  • Best practices
  • Potential penalties and regulatory enforcement

“We see increasingly complex cyber security threats facing our healthcare clients,” Abrenio noted. “The information provided in this chapter is very relevant and timely for organizations that need to address these threats in addition to meeting best practices and compliance requirements.”

“This chapter not only represents collaborative work between cyber security, law, and health care, but also recognizes and highlights the importance of the three fields coming together to address security issues,” Evans added. “The security challenges within the health care sector continue to increase, and solutions require collaborative approaches built from combined and relevant experience.”

Delta Risk recently acquired Allied InfoSecurity, a privately-held firm based in the Philadelphia metro region, as part of its focus on offering security services for the healthcare market, particularly mid-sized organizations that face the same cyber threats and regulatory concerns as their larger counterparts. Delta Risk’s healthcare industry services team is led by former Allied InfoSecurity CEO Michael McKinley, who now serves as Vice President and General Manager.
