MedBen Continues to Find Ways to Safeguard Your Data

Rose McEntire & Wendell Crain

At MedBen, we continually evaluate and make changes to our data security procedures. As the threats have grown, we have been proactive in finding ways to stop them.

MedBen approaches security from three perspectives: external, internal and physical. In all three instances, we have in recent months added new safeguards to our existing protections. You can download our revised Data Security document from the MedBen website.

"With incidents of ransomware and other types of malware on the rise, it's a daily job for my security team and I to stay informed of the latest threats," said Rose McEntire, MedBen Vice President of Information Systems and Chief Security Officer. "But we put in place every precaution possible to protect client data."

McEntire added that security team members review daily updates from the Society of Professional Benefit Administrators (SPBA) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and frequently attend webinars and seminars on cybersecurity. "We also enlist cybersecurity consultants to review our environment and make recommendations for further protections," she said.

Key to maintaining security is the full involvement of the MedBen staff, noted Wendell Crain, MedBen Director of Security, Infrastructure and Web. "You can have all the safeguards in the world in place, but at the end of the day the human element is still essential to security. So we keep every employee informed about how to spot potential malware and what to do if they spot a threat," Crain said.
