ISO 27799 is an international standard providing guidance on how best to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal health data for anyone working in the health sector or its unique operating environments.
Thales provides many of the solutions required to comply with this ISO, including:
1ISO 27799, Second edition 2016-07-01, Health informatics — Information security management in health using ISO/IEC 27002. https://www.iso.org/standard/62777.html
2ISO/IEC 27002, Second edition 2013-10-01: Information technology — Security techniques — Code of practice for information security controls. https://www.iso.org/standard/54533.html
Among the best practices called for in ISO 27799 are:
Thales can help you meet the standards in ISO 27799:2016 through:
Vormetric’s Data Security Platform provides state of the art user access control.
Vormetric protects the data itself through Vormetric Transparent Encryption with integrated Key Management for data at rest, Application Encryption, Tokenization with Dynamic Masking and more. These techniques make the data meaningless and worthless without the tools to decrypt it.
Integrated Key Management from Thales provides a robust, standards-based platform for managing encryption keys from disparate sources across the enterprise. It simplifies the management and administrative challenges around encryption key management to ensure that keys are secure and always provisioned to authorized encryption services.
Security Intelligence Logs
Thales lets the enterprise monitor and identify extraordinary data access. Vormetric Security Intelligence Logs are detailed management logs that specify which processes and users have accessed protected data. They specify when users and processes accessed which data, under which policies, and if access requests were allowed or denied. The management logs will even expose when a privileged user submits a command like 'switch users' in order to attempt to imitate, and potentially exploit, the credentials of another user. Sharing these logs with a security information and event management (SIEM) platform helps uncover anomalous patterns in processes and user access, which can prompt further investigation. For example, an administrator or process may suddenly access much larger volumes of data than normal, or attempt to do an unauthorized download of files. These events could point to an APT attack or malicious insider activities.
Perhaps the most comprehensive data privacy standard to date, GDPR affects any organisation that processes the personal data of EU citizens - regardless of where the organisation is headquartered.
Any organisation that plays a role in processing credit and debit card payments must comply with the strict PCI DSS compliance requirements for the processing, storage and transmission of account data.
Data breach notification requirements following loss of personal information have been enacted by nations around the globe. They vary by jurisdiction but almost universally include a “safe harbour” clause.
