NEN 7510 certification

Information security in healthcare

In a healthcare facility, the need for information security is often even greater than elsewhere. Your patients and clients trust you to handle their personal data in the strictest confidence. This is why Dutch legislation insists that healthcare institutions must be able to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of NEN 7510. This is the Dutch norm for information security in healthcare, based on the international standard ISO 27001.

Working safely and with integrity with the NEN 7510 certification

Working in accordance with the NEN 7510 standard goes beyond the design of your ICT systems. It looks at all forms of information processing in the organization, with considerable emphasis on human operations. How responsibly do you and your employees handle confidential data? You can demonstrate that you deal with this correctly through certification against NEN 7510.

Our working method

During the certification process the auditors consider the requirements and measures. But they also consider the day-to-day operations and whether the information security system works as intended. With DEKRA you opt for a process-oriented audit​. We help you to live up to the trust people place in you, day after day.
