Using this family of standards helps an organization manage the security of assets such as health care records, financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to them by third parties.

We have always been committed to providing our patients top-class care and an assurance that their personal information is safe with us. With the IS027001 certification, we have taken yet another positive step towards reinforcing our pledge.
