October is Cyber Security Month, an important time for organisations to reflect on the protection of sensitive data and prioritise their security measures. At Datascan, this topic holds extreme significance as we handle a vast amount of sensitive information, ranging from medical records, financial and personnel records to CCTV Footage. As a result, our commitment to data security is unwavering.

Internationally Recognised Certification

To demonstrate our dedication to safeguarding data, we have obtained two prestigious certificates: ISO27001 Information Security Management and Cyber Essentials Certification. These certifications attest to our meticulous approach towards protecting information and highlight our adherence to international standards and best practices.

Our commitment begins with our physical premises, where we have implemented various security measures. Controlled access points, surveillance cameras, and alarm systems are just a few examples of how we ensure physical security. This comprehensive approach guarantees that unauthorised individuals cannot gain access to our premises and tamper with any data.

Moreover, we understand that the security of data also heavily depends on the reliability of our staff. Therefore, we have implemented a rigorous vetting process to ensure that only qualified and trustworthy employees are employed. Regular training sessions are conducted to keep our staff up-to-date with the latest security protocols and practices, enabling them to exercise caution and make informed decisions when handling sensitive information.

Cyber Security

In addition to physical security and employee training, our systems’ infrastructure and software play a crucial role in safeguarding our digital data. We have a dedicated IT team that monitors our networks and systems, identifying any potential vulnerabilities and taking immediate action to mitigate risks. Regular audits are conducted to ensure compliance with industry standards and to identify any areas that require improvement. Through these measures, we can confidently assure our clients that their data is protected with the highest level of security.

While our focus is primarily on protecting the data we hold, we also understand the importance of educating our employees and clients about cyber threats. This Cyber Security Month, we are again raising awareness internally about potential risks and preventive measures. By fostering a culture of cybersecurity, we aim to create a collective effort towards a safer digital environment.

As we celebrate Cyber Security Month, Datascan stands as a testament to the importance of data security. Our ISO27001 Information Security Management and Cyber Essentials Certification, comprehensive security measures, and commitment to continuous improvement reflect our dedication to protecting our clients’ data. By prioritising security at every level, we can ensure a safe environment for our clients.
