SecureStart for First Nation Health Centres is a comprehensive Cyber Security Risk Assessment packaged service conducted remotely by a Cyber Ops Specialist, designed to identify potential risks to your ICT environment that would lead to unplanned downtime, malware infection, or loss of confidential / sensitive information (data breach).
More than ever, the current cyber threat landscape requires organizations to align their Information Technology infrastructure to recommended security practices. SecureStart will help discover potential security vulnerabilities within the Health Centre’s physical network environment, providing an in-depth assessment of your infrastructure.
Key technical information about your environment is collected remotely for the purposes of further review and analysis. Our audit results will include key recommendations, knowledge transfer, and we build a remediation plan to help correct any areas of concern. And, if you require support to deploy these recommendations, we can create a project plan for consideration.
Clear Concepts has significant experience in conducting security audits large and small, but we find our SecureStart package to be a good entry point for First Nation Health Centres. The SecureStart assessment offered to qualified Health Centres at no charge but is valued at $2500. The process begins with a questionnaire that helps the Security Specialist determine the risk profile of the organization, allowing for a more tailored approach to the process and final document. Next, deep inspection software will scan the Health Centre network, analyzing data traffic for telltale signs of malware or other cyber threats. During this time, a Cyber Ops Specialist will remotely review other important network assets including the firewall, switches, validate backups, review permissions and data policies.
"Nuts'amat Shqwaluwun" means "Working together with one heart and one mind". This traditional value is at the center of the Mustimuhw Solutions. Our two core products, the Mustimuhw community electronic medical record (cEMR) and the Mustimuhw Child and Family Services Case Management System (CFS-BP), are electronic solutions that seek to integrate community members, families, service providers and technology in delivering care with one heart and one mind.
Dissatisfied with mainstream solutions or those offered by government, Cowichan Tribes has developed unique solutions designed specifically for First Nations Health Centres and Child & Family Service Agencies. We have been refining these solutions to better meet your needs for over the past 22 years.
Mustimuhw Solutions reflect an intimate working knowledge of the requirements First Nation Health Centers and C&F Service Agencies need in information management systems, and the key supporting services that are essential to ensure the organization's continued success. Mustimuhw Solutions are full service offerings.
Cowichan established Mustimuhw Information Solutions Inc. (MIS), as a fully owned Cowichan Tribes subsidiary, to continue to manage and evolve the Mustimuhw solutions and support the growing customer base of communities using these tools. Currently MIS is operating in 7 provinces with our solutions supporting over 270 First Nations.
Our goal is to get you the support you need to implement the product, train your staff, provide ongoing application support and finally to listen to Mustimuhw Solution users in helping chart future product enhancements.
We will securely connect via Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Remote Desktop Protocols (RDP) to the network using credentials setup by your IT administrator or Mustimuhw Solutions.
Clear Concepts has been working with a large number of First Nation organizations across Canada (more about Clear Concepts here). Our company has received many national awards for our work with First Nation Health Centres (more about our awards here). All of our technicians have passed Criminal Record and Child Abuse Registry Checks.
No, the SecureStart Assessment will not have any impact on usage of the network or any applications.
The SecureStart Assessment is funded by Mustimuhw Solutions. The value of the SecureStart Assessment is $2500 (CDN).
Unfortunately, no Security Assessment can be 100% guaranteed. We utilize best practices to conduct our assessments and follow the National Cybersecurity FFRDC to scan for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). Network security is also an ongoing commitment, the SecureStart Assessment will only provide a point in time view of your security posture.
The SecureStart Assessment will ideally be completed in less than two weeks from completion of the Pre-Assessment Questionnaire.
Depending on what type of vulnerability is found, we may contact you immediately with recommendations. Otherwise, the SecureStart Assessment will describe in detail what recommended remediations / actions are to be taken. You can choose to work with Clear Concepts on the remediations (on a fee basis) if you don’t have current IT support.
