At Clinco we have just undergone our third annual ISO27001 audit with our best ever results. For those of you not familiar with ISO27001, it’s the international data protection standard which we have chosen to apply to all our systems and processes.
This means that when medical records come to us for pagination, whether electronically or in hard copy, our clients can be sure that they are tracked, kept securely and strictly controlled to prevent a data breach.
We are dealing on a daily basis with highly confidential personal data. So we see information security as an obligation both to the data subject and to our instructing firm – so that they can satisfy their own professional compliance requirements in relation to the outsourcing of sensitive client information.
We had excellent feedback from our external auditor. We will make our audit report available to any client wishing to review it, whether for their own due diligence procedures or simply out of interest, to see the scope of the requirements.
