All-in-one cybersecurity program Havoc Shield announced today a partnership with Strategic Radiology (SR), a coalition of 39 privately owned, independent practices representing more than 1700 radiologists.

This partnership grants SR member practices access to Havoc Shield’s comprehensive cybersecurity suite with exclusive pricing, enhancing their ability to protect sensitive patient data and maintain robust cyber defenses.

With the increasing prevalence of cyberattacks in the healthcare sector, radiology practices face heightened risks of data breaches and ransomware attacks. Havoc Shield’s award-winning program will help SR members implement and manage a HIPAA-compliant set of security controls, including vulnerability detection, employee training, and incident response planning, among many other essential elements.

“Cybersecurity is a critical component of modern healthcare operations, and the need for robust protection has never been more important,” said Brian Fritton, Founder and CEO of Havoc Shield.

“We are excited to partner with Strategic Radiology to provide their members with the cybersecurity resources and tools necessary to keep patient data safe and keep practices out of the headlines.” 

This partnership underscores Strategic Radiology’s commitment to supporting its members with growing their practices securely. “Our members have increasingly sought cybersecurity solutions, especially as the threat landscape evolves,” said Scott Bundy MD, CEO of Strategic Radiology.

“By partnering with Havoc Shield, we can now offer an affordable, comprehensive security service that allows our members to focus on delivering high-quality patient care.”
