We are delighted to share the news that Dimensional Insight’s European organisation, based in Leiden, Netherlands, has recently achieved two important certifications related to information security. We share their press release below.
Leiden, July 19, 2018 – Dimensional Insight is very proud to be awarded the ISO27001: 2013 and NEN7510: 2017 certificates. It is only a year ago that Dimensional Insight decided to take the big step and to certify itself in these important standards in information security.
With the ever-increasing social focus on privacy and data security and the then-still AVG, certification was a very logical choice. In the autumn of 2017 the first concrete steps were taken in that direction.
“It was an interesting journey in which we learned a lot about ourselves and in which, not least, we also had a lot of fun together,” says Peter Vos, director of Dimensional Insight. “We were already well aware of our information and data security and have formalized and documented this over the past year. In addition, we have made many existing processes transparent and streamlined. ”
ISO27001 is a standard that deals with information security. This standard describes how you can deal with information security in a process, with the aim of ensuring the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information within an organization.
The ISO27001 certificate is issued by registered companies that perform an audit in accordance with the standard. Based on ISO / IEC 27001 certification, Dimensional Insight demonstrates that the Information Security Management System meets all standard requirements in the field of information security.
The NEN7510 is a comparable standard for care. In particular, additional requirements are set for health information. The NEN7510 is intended for care institutions and other managers of personal health information.
The certification applies to the hosting services, Business Intelligence consulting and Software Development. This means that all services that Dimensional Insight offers its customers under certification.
Focus on security
Information security has always been the focus of Dimensional Insight. In the past year, this focus was formalized in an information security management system in which information security is approached process-wise and constantly improved. For the systems in which health information is processed, extra attention has been paid to the implementation of the care-specific measures from the NEN7510.
“With this certification we can independently prove that we have our information security in order. The formalized procedures keep us alert and critical of what we could do even better in the future. Information security is not our goal, but a means to give our customer the best possible service. This certification shows that our customers can build on us. “
