This indicates that the Sourcing Company meets the highest standards in the field of information security. With the NEN certification, The Sourcing Company is able to assist companies within the healthcare sector with the implementation of the legally required NEN-standard.
"With these certificates we show that we do everything we can to protect data".
ISO 27001 describes how you can deal with the security of information process-based, with the goal to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information within an organization. You can think of the protection of personal and/or company data, protection against hackers and burglary.
ISO 27001 is useful for all organizations that want to demonstrate that they use a set of measures, processes and procedures to show that they are serious about information security. These may be ICT companies (such as The Sourcing Company), but can also be banks, insurance companies, the government, healthcare institutions and other companies that deal with, edit or store confidential information.
The NEN 7510 standard is focused on information security within healthcare. Ensuring the availability, integrity and confidentiality of patient information receives extra attention in the standard and the associated certificate. The NEN 7510 certificate 'Information security in healthcare' has been developed specially for institutions in the healthcare sector and for organizations that process or manage patient data. The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport requires healthcare institutions to ensure that the security of the information is in order. Using the NEN 7510 certification the healthcare institutions can demonstrate independently that the security of the information in healthcare is good.
The certification was carried out bij DEKRA, one of the largest test and certification institutions in the world. DEKRA has extensive expertise in the auditing and certifying of management systems in the areas of quality, safety, sustainability and information security.
