In an implementation highlight, a healthcare client was facing difficulties in finding the time, required resources, and budget to respond to government regulations on time. This client was in contract with a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) customer and was expected to become FISMA compliant within a year. Although the accreditation was estimated to take several years, the Lynx team’s dedication and work principles allowed the company’s information assurance team to meet the compliance requirements of the CMS and Acceptable Risk Safeguards regulations and complete the project in just nine months.

Lynx’s seasoned experts work with their clients right though the project helping them improve their security posture and operational efficiency. For the Lynx team, the goal at large is not to execute a statement of work, but to understand client requirements, adapt to their environment, and partner with them as a trusted advisor in achieving regulatory compliance.
