BlackBerry becomes a HIMSS Analytics certified consultant on infrastructure

The once widely popular smart business phone maker is still around, and will become a valuable asset to hospital infrastructures.  BlackBerry has signed on as a HIMSS Analytics Certified Consultant and will help direct healthcare organizations through the HIMSS Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM). INFRAM is an eight-stage model (0 – 7) that allows healthcare IT leaders to map the technology infrastructure capabilities needed to reach their organization’s clinical and operational goals, while also meeting benchmarks and industry standards. Sara Jost, global healthcare industry lead at BlackBerry, says that “BlackBerry will assess vulnerabilities in a hospital’s infrastructure, devices, and configurations, using a wide range of penetration testing, social engineering techniques, and physical security assessments.” Even though Blackberry has been less relevent in the mobile phone market, the company’s cyber security is still very strong and in demand. HIMSS Analytics Executive Vice President Blain Newton says, “With BlackBerry’s deep cybersecurity expertise and footprint in highly regulated industries we’re confident that having BlackBerry at the table will ensure the INFRAM is the gold standard for running a scalable and secure organization.”
