CISO Michael Erickson Discusses Implementation of HAC-1 Solution

Michael Erickson, CISO of the Louisville-Ky.-based Baptist Health, sat down with Healthcare Innovation to discuss the implementation of the Rockville, Md.-based Sepio Systems’ HAC-1 solution

Rockville, Md.-based Sepio, a zero-trust hardware access (ZTHA) company, recently announced that Baptist Health selected its HAC-1 solution to add a new layer of defense against rogue devices used by cybercriminals to evade traditional threat detection tools.

Sepio HAC-1 is a ZTHA control platform that provides visibility, control, and mitigation to zero trust, insider threat, BYOD, IT, OT and IoT security programs. Sepio’s hardware fingerprinting technology discovers all managed, unmanaged, and hidden devices that are otherwise invisible to all other security tools. Sepio is a strategic partner of Munich Re, a reinsurance company, and Merlin Cyber, a cybersecurity federal solution provider.

Baptist Health is a full-spectrum health system. The Baptist Health organization includes nine hospitals, employed and independent physicians, and more than 400 points of care. Baptist Health’s eight owned hospitals include more than 2,300 licensed beds. Baptist Health also operates the 410-bed Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville in Madisonville, Ky. in a joint venture with Deaconess Health System based in Evansville, Ind.
