Optium Cyber Systems Reveals Marketing Strategy for Monetization of Cyber Security Platform for Medical Sector
THE WOODLANDS, TX–(Marketwired – Nov 21, 2017) – Optium Cyber Systems, Inc. (the Company) (OTC PINK: OCSY) today released for its shareholders the marketing strategy for the monetization of its leading edge cyber security platform developed for the medical sector.
The initial rollout will focus on marketing to health care networks in the Greater Houston area which is made up of over 40+ hospitals. Each facility represents $20,000 per initial Cyber Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) and then monthly recurring revenue of $15,000 – $25,000. The marketing efforts will initially rely heavily on the associations and affiliations of the Company’s Board of Advisors and then continue to grow through aggressive marketing and development of strategic alliances. The Company will be presenting to a number of the key decision makers of these networks in the very near future with the main message of highlighting the results of its first CVA and the potential catastrophic losses a cyber breach can cause including the financial liability for the institution and its directors.
“As I previously stated, hospital executives and board members cannot bury their heads in the sand and ignore the threat of a cyber breach. They must be made aware of the potential losses a cyber breach represents and take the necessary steps to protect their institution and their patients,” stated Michael T. Rutherford, CEO of Optium Cyber Systems. “They must be proactive and address the threat of a cyber infiltration. The first step in this process is to identify the vulnerabilities in their IT environment by performing a CVA,” continued Mr. Rutherford.
“The results of our first CVAs speak for themselves. Directors and decisions making the decisions need to realize the need to take note that our platform delivers on its promise,” stated George M. Rutherford, President of Optium Cyber Systems. “Ignoring the threat of a cyber breach not only put patients in harm’s way but also opens the door to financial damages to institution and key decision makers,” continued Mr. Rutherford., “We are now in the position that we should become exponential in our growth with a proven product such as OCSI has presented into the market”.
“For years we have had studies put out by industry experts related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s security rules, but now we have a comprehensive Healthcare Cyber Vulnerability Assessment specifically designed to help protect hospitals from cyber criminals. Executives and decision makers of these facilities should sit up and take notice,” commented Mr. Mark R. Anderson, a former Chief Information Officer with 5 multi-Hospital Chains and a current member of the Board of Advisors for Optium Cyber Systems, Inc.
