RADAR Empowers Organizations, Saves Time and Resources, Simplifies Compliance
Security incidents have become an everyday occurrence in all industries that use and hold sensitive customer and patient information. Managing data risks and staying in compliance with breach laws is complicated and challenging. There are now 47 state and multiple federal U.S. laws regulating data breach notification; the number of states is expected to grow to 49 in 2015. As a result, organizations of all sizes--from community hospitals to the largest municipal healthcare organization in the country to large health plans and financial institutions--are choosing RADAR, patented and secure cloud-based software to help them assess and manage incidents, identify incident trends, facilitate compliance with federal and state breach notification laws, and avoid the risk of over or under notification.
"With the volume of security and privacy incidents exploding, RADAR empowers companies to reduce risk by becoming more efficient, responsive and proactive in data breach analysis, response, and compliance," said Mahmood Sher-Jan, executive vice president and general manager, RADAR business unit at ID Experts. "Organizations are moving toward proven software such as RADAR to address the complex processes of incident risk assessment, breach determination, and documentation, in order to meet their notification and reporting obligations and reduce enterprise risk."
Newly Formed: RADAR Board of Advisors
Also announced today, is the formation of the RADAR Board of Advisors, to further expand ID Experts security team of experts. RADAR, the proven and purpose-built privacy platform, has earned multiple patents, and won the HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Award for Technology. The Board of Advisors will serve as a sounding board for RADAR, as it continues to evolve and address the newest security threats. Initial Board members include Dwayne Melancon, CISA, chief technology officer and vice president of research and development at Tripwire. He actively works with global corporations on information/cyber security, data breach preparation and recovery, DevOps, and executive cyber security strategy. Joining him is Pete Selda, a technology veteran with extensive experience in designing, building, managing and supporting software systems, with knowledge of behavioral software and the detection of malicious code.
