ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meditology, a top-ranked healthcare cybersecurity and privacy consulting firm, has been certified by the PCI Security Standards Council as a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV). The organization completed a rigorous assessment and training process that allows the organization to offer services to evaluate and certify the effectiveness PCI-DSS controls and processes for its customers.
Meditology stands out as one of the only QSA and ASV providers that is dedicated to the healthcare industry. The formal achievement of qualified assessor status comes after decades of experience from Meditology’s PCI leaders in assessing and implementing PCI and payment card risks for healthcare entities.
“The timing of our designation as a PCI QSA comes at a critical time for healthcare organizations that are facing unprecedented levels of cyberattacks,” said Ryan Freeman-Jones, Managing Director at Meditology. “We are looking forward to continuing to deliver the excellence in customer service that our clients have come to expect from Meditology in offering these new QSA and ASVs services to the industry,” said Freeman-Jones.
“Payment card data is highly sought after by malicious actors and healthcare entities face financial penalties, legal costs, and brand reputational damage in the event that systems are breached and payment card data is exposed,” said Bruce Edwards, Senior Manager at Meditology. “Payment card protection is too often overlooked or under invested relative to safeguarding HIPAA Protected Health Information for many organizations,” said Edwards.
With the formal QSA and ASV designation, Meditology adds a full suite of PCI-DSS support services for healthcare entities. More information is available on Meditology’s PCI Compliance Services for Healthcare webpage.
