The costs and consequences of a data breach can cripple a healthcare organization, especially if it is not handled quickly.

With Absolute DDS for Healthcare, you can speed up your response time following a security incident, either containing an incident before it becomes a breach or providing the tools and reports to expedite the compliance process and minimize costs.
