Hospitals and Healthcare

Valencia cares about the well-being of your patients, providers, organizations, and data. The intersection of privacy and security matters deeply, and we bring deep healthcare expertise to your new digital world.

Are electronic records putting you at risk?

As the pressure mounts to become completely digitized, healthcare organizations need to undergo digital transformations that leave them in a more secure position than ever before. Unfortunately, healthcare is frequently targeted by hackers, and electronic records have increased the risk of being hit with fraud, ransomware, and digital extortion. We help hospitals stay healthy and free from breaches, attacks, and shutdowns.

Protect patient records.

Beyond our expertise in cybersecurity and privacy, we care about people—neighbors, friends, and citizens. We help you stay compliant with PHIPA and current regulations to protect our most vulnerable.

Become insurable.

Cybersecurity insurance is a smart move. We help organizations choose an insurer, qualify, and complete the process. And we work closely with insurance companies through breaches and simulations.

Stop overpaying for risk management.

Citrus and Slice work at your scale and include only the services you need.

We’re ready when you are.

We have years of experience navigating the frameworks, policies, and standards that underpin Canada’s unique public-private healthcare system, including ISO 27001, Canada Health Infoway, and provincial privacy regulations. And we’ve removed any procurement hurdles to working with us on even the most sensitive projects. Being prequalified for supply arrangements means we’re already at the starting line.

Outsourced cybersecurity is a simple solution for hospitals.

Valencia offers flexible annual cybersecurity and privacy programs. We integrate with your team to provide a dedicated virtual office or a curated basket of services, taking the burden off your leaders and IT staff.

Cybersecurity Solutions

Your digital systems are moving to the cloud, and public sector must create solutions that inspire and engage while keeping the confidence of Canadians. We offer security engineering, architecture, and solutions that help. Our team helps you select the write service providers, technology vendors, and technology designs. And we’ll help you manage, or implement the cybersecurity and privacy components.

Security Assurance and Authorization

We know your standards and policies: From the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to the Federal Government’s own technical assurance standard, such as ITSG-33, we can help build, certify, and test your solution to meet standards for classified or Protected information.


Your auditors are a valuable line of defense. We’ll work as auditors to test cybersecurity controls. Valencia has cyber professionals with CPA, CIA, and CISA designations.

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

We’ll identify the flaws in your infrastructure, cloud, and applications with vulnerability assessments and penetration tests. We use cutting-edge tools handled like a safety razor, to give you real results without impact.

Threat Risk Assessments (TRA)

Understanding your risks means knowing where your Crown Jewels are, understanding the impact of breach, and tracing vulnerabilities and threats to your most important services and data. Our TRA meets the government’s harmonized TRA methodology, but is simple to digest, because it’s powered by Zest.

Cybersecurity and Privacy Breach Simulations

The best breach is a simulated breach. We bring national-calibre breach coaches and cyber experts together to create a custom scenario for you. From technical to tabletop, simulations are part of Slice, and one of the best training tools you can have.

Staff Augmentation

Many public sector organizations need to elevate and support their team during surge time or staffing shortages. A Valencian can help during surge demand periods.
