Information Security

On 7 September 2015, Transparency in Healthcare was certified according to the international ISO27001 and the Dutch NEN7510 standards for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). The scope of the ISMS is: “Data collection, management, analysis and reporting for research and monitoring in accordance with the Statement of Applicability.” Compliance to these norms certifies that TiH meets the highest standards for data security and regulatory compliance.

Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance has performed the audits for TiH and has expressed their confidence in our information security, policies, and organizational system with regards to both norms. This has resulted in two certificates: 


These certificates are valid for a period of three years, after which TiH will be re-evaluated. During this period, there are several audits to show TiH’s quality is at the appropriate level.

TiH has appointed an Information Security Officer who is responsible for the implementation, operation and maintenance of the information security policy. This includes executing risk analyses, guidance and education of employees, and monitoring of adherence to the norms. Futhermore, he controls and oversees any possible changes in laws with regards to information security.
