For MedBen, Your Data Security Is an Ongoing Commitment

Rose McEntire

No business is more acutely aware of the importance of data security nowadays than those in the health care industry. With ransomware becoming more prevalent, the need for heightened measures has never been greater... and for years, MedBen has been addressing this need.

Long before "cybersecurity" became common language, MedBen had gone to great lengths to ensure the safety of client information. Our commitment to allowing only authorized people to view and disseminate personal data goes back over two decades, and in the ensuing years we’ve continued to be proactive about respecting and protecting your privacy.

MedBen approaches security from three perspectives: external, internal, and physical. In all three instances, we have recently added new safeguards to our existing protections.

But having these safeguards in place is only half the story. Our cybersecurity strategy requires that we test these protective measures through periodic, unscheduled penetration attempts by IBM and other outside firms. Not only do these tests confirm the reliability of our safeguards, they provide valuable feedback that helps us further strengthen our defenses.

MedBen clients with questions regarding our cybersecurity measures are welcome to contact our Vice President of Information Systems and Chief Privacy Office Rose McEntire at rmcentire@medben.com.
