AUSTIN, TX – July 13, 2017 — CynergisTek, an Auxilio company (NYSE MKT: AUXO) and authority in health information security, privacy and compliance, today announced that a large, integrated health system located in the Midwest has selected its Managed Privacy Monitoring Service (MPMS). Under the terms of the three-year, $750K contract, CynergisTek’s highly-trained IT privacy and security specialists will help implement, evaluate and optimize the organization’s data privacy program.

CynergisTek’s MPMS leverages a powerful combination of industry-specific expertise and fully automated technology to offer an end-to-end privacy monitoring program that ensures organizational compliance with federal regulations and helps organizations effectively mitigate insider risk.

MPMS specifically focuses on establishing the necessary processes that our clients need and the resources that allows them to achieve their privacy monitoring objectives.”
