Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection at Careview with ISO 27001

ISO 27001

In today’s environment, cybersecurity and data protection systems are vital for companies and organisations that store, handle or collect sensitive customer data. Data loss or theft from an organisation includes client financial information, medical records, names, birthdates, and contact information, which criminals can maliciously use for fraud, identity theft or blackmail. Data misconduct has considerable psychological and financial implications for a client that is difficult to repair. For an organisation, a data breach’s most significant long-term consequence is the loss of customer trust. 

The organisations that we continue to support trust Careview to maintain our high level of service and security within the disability sector that we are passionate about. This is represented by our product and engineering teams continually monitoring and improving the Careview platform. To further increase Careview’s security measures and management, we are currently in the process of becoming certified for the International Information Security Standard (ISO 27001). 

What is ISO 27001?

The international benchmark for efficient information management is ISO 27001. The only worldwide standard that can be audited and outlines the specifications for an ISMS (information security management system) is ISO 27001. It aids businesses in avoiding potential security breaches. Organisations with an ISO 27001 certification can demonstrate to clients, partners, and investors that they have taken precautions to safeguard data in the case of a breach.

How does it work?

ISO 27001 is a combination of policies and processes that provide a framework to help organisations to establish, implement, operate and identify gaps in their data security. The goal of ISO 27001 is to strengthen and improve an organisation’s security management systems. To become certified, a business must pass an external audit and meet all compliance criteria over a period of time. 

What are the benefits? 

Being an ISO 27001-certified business safeguards client information assets, lowering the risk of legal action and client distrust due to data breaches. Companies can identify incidents of security breaches and respond quickly according to ISO 27001 protocols.

The benefits of ISO 27001 include the following:

  • Securing information in all forms of data, including paper-based, cloud-based and digital.
  • Defence against evolving cyber-attacks, data hacks and other threats. 
  • A centrally controlled framework that secures data in one location.
  • Reducing costs and spending on ineffective defence technology.
  • Protecting the integrity, confidentiality and availability of data.

Businesses are continuously subjected to data security risks, from cyber hacks to internal data breaches. At Careview, we care about our customers well being and are committed to data protection and delivering safe management outcomes. We invest heavily in data protection to secure our client’s sensitive data.
