QI Partners was founded in 2010 by Eric Hummel and Robert Zimmerman. Our experiences told us there was better way to implement and manage security and privacy. We took on the challenge of developing an efficient, repeatable and cost effective solution for small and medium sized businesses. We recognized that security and privacy expertise and solutions are often overly complex and cost prohibitive for smaller organizations. We also realized that many small and medium size organizations do not have the background or time to effectively perform security and privacy activities.
QIP has developed a disruptive approach to assisting organizations meet their security and privacy requirements. The HIPAA HITECH Express solution transforms the IT security industry and makes meaningful Risk Management programs accessible and affordable to all organizations. Our difference is an accelerated, simplified and guided implementation of repeatable and consistent security and privacy processes. Our solution works for one organization or across many organizations whether large or small. It is an end-to-end solution that includes an intuitive roadmap to take you from your regulatory gaps to a prioritized, compliant, auditable and protected environment.
QIP solutions are not limited to HIPAA HITECH. We are continuously improving and extending our offerings to cover new markets and innovations. We are extending our methodology to provide cost effective solutions to any organization that needs to build and track security compliance and risk management. We are in process of developing PCI and FedRAMP methodologies to serve companies in the retail, financial and federal marketplaces.
Our Goals are Simple, To de-mystify Security, To Focus on what is Important, and To Reduce your Risk
