Discovery Park medical records tenant Clinco, which has been on site for over three years, has been awarded the demanding accreditation in information security – ISO27001.
Clinco, which provides collation and analytic services related to medical records and therefore handles large amounts of confidential information on a daily basis, identified data protection as an area for active investment last year. Since then the Clinco team has been working hard to achieve the internationally-recognised information safety standard.
Clinco Legal Director Sarah Wallace said:“We’re delighted to be what we believe to be the first collation service in the UK to achieve ISO27001 to show how serious we are about data protection. We’re responsible for ordering, paginating and transferring large numbers of medical records. We want our clients to know we are not putting confidentiality at risk.
“It helps that we’re in highly secure premises and Discovery Park is ideal with its 24/7 security presence and systems. The standard goes far beyond this, though, and covers all our electronic and hard copy processes. We’re very pleased to have passed the rigorous auditing procedure with flying colours, and looking forward to the future with confidence.”
