Why did you choose to get certified against ISO/IEC 27001?

As cyber-attacks like ransomware and data breaches become more common, there is a growing concern about protecting the sensitive medical and personal information of MHC patients and clients. To address this, it is essential to obtain Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) certification that upholds the security and privacy of patients’ information in line with international standards.

With the implementation of ISMS, MHC has managed to maintain and continually improve management systems for information security. This involves identifying external and internal factors that impact its goals and strategic direction.

Benefits of obtaining ISO/IEC 27001 certification

We have enhanced security, and improved the risk management process by continuously evaluating control effectiveness and adding more security controls to the information managed by MGHC.
