ISO 27001 is internationally recognized as the standard providing the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). An Information Security Management System provides a procedure for managing sensitive information pertaining to the company to make the information secure. The main components to an ISMS are confidentiality, integrity, and availability. ISO 27001 covers 95% of the requirements set forth by HIPAA.
You need to develop policies and procedures manuals addressing confidentiality, storage, destruction, encryption, and make sure that administrative, technical and physical safeguards are in place.
Smaller organizations usually do not have the resources and expertise to properly implement an Information Security Management System to meet the required standards.
LMG can also help you to develop an integrated system of implementing multiple Quality Management Standards together. For example, a health care provider or a covered entity dealing with patient’s health information (PHI) may choose to implement HIPPA rules as per 45 CFR 164.316, ISO 9001, and ISO 27001 standards together.
In addition to be convenient and cost-effective this approach will help you to avoid developing and maintaining multiple lists of quality management system documents and going through multiple audits.
