Company Nurse Healthcare Cybersecurity Case Wins Award

Recently, Concentric won a Cloud Computing Excellence Award based on our Company Nurse case study. We are proud to be a part of Company Nurse’s efforts to be the most secure workers’ compensation company in the industry, and even prouder to be recognized for our joint efforts by TMC.

Company Nurse, and the story of their security journey, continues to impress us. They recently launched their COVID-19 screening service to help businesses and schools make a safe return to normal. As we all know, fast, effective, affordable and confidential screening is going to be an essential part of beating this pandemic. Company Nurse’s commitment to keeping client data secure is something we’re all proud of, and it’s something the editors at Cloud Computing Magazine took notice of when they reviewed Concentric’s submission.

Here’s a bit more on Company Nurse and their mission:

“We ease the pain of workers’ comp by completing incident reports, providing appropriate care advice to injured workers, managing providers for referral, and more,” said Henry Svendblad, CTO for Company Nurse. “The information on the forms and reports adds up to significant quantities of unstructured data. With Concentric, we can secure this private information without extra staff or overhead. It’s a powerful addition to our cyber security strategy.”

Semantic Intelligence™ automates data access governance for unstructured data using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. The solution uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to calculate a “risk distance” from the baseline to each individual form or file managed by Company Nurse. Risk analysis using Risk Distance reveals inappropriate sharing, risky storage locations and incorrect classifications – all without regex, rules or upfront policy configuration. Concentric works autonomously to reduce staff demands required to secure data, while providing continuous protection.

“Not long after we installed the solution, Semantic Intelligence found duplicate files we didn’t need to maintain and spotted opportunities to tighten up access permissions and improve least-privileges discipline,” continued Svendblad. “With Concentric we’ve solidified our cyber security leadership in the workers’ comp industry. Looking ahead, as customers adopt our new COVID-19 screening and triage program, protecting their private data will be one less thing for them to worry about.”

Thanks Henry, and Company Nurse, for letting us be a part of what you do!
