24By7Security: A Comprehensive Cybersecurity & Compliance Solutions Provider

Cyber security in healthcare is a growing concern these days, since there has been a steady rise in hacking and IT security breaching incidents in the past few years. Many healthcare organizations are struggling to defend their network perimeter and keep cybercriminals at bay. A company that addresses this issue head-on is 24By7Security, Inc. It is a cybersecurity and compliance company with demonstrated expertise in helping businesses build a defensive IT Infrastructure against all cybersecurity threats.

The Leader behind Its Success

The company is the brain child of Sanjay Deo, who is the President of 24By7Security. In 2013 Sanjay was the CEO of a Security Operations Center and Consulting firm. With several years of information security experience in multiple industries, he saw an opportunity in healthcare security and compliance. That’s when he founded HIPAA-HITECH-SOLUTIONS, Inc. with the mission of providing HIPAA compliance services in South Florida. As the business grew, more opportunities appeared and its client segment started expanding. The company’s team consists of experts in cybersecurity, healthcare technology, and consulting. With their help Sanjay decided to expand the business to cover all industries. That is when 24By7Security was born and the old company folded into the umbrella of 24By7Security.

Sanjay has over twenty years of cybersecurity and compliance experience. He holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, and is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Healthcare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner (HCISPP).
