AIMES are pleased to announce the successful completion of the NHS’s Data Protection and Security Toolkit assessment. NHS Digital launched this as a replacement to the Information Governance Toolkit to mark a foundation for long-term improvements in patient data security. The new assessment enables health and social care organisations to measure and publish their performance against the National Data Guardian’s ten data security standards. Whilst also acting as a powerful tool for organisations to assess their cyber preparedness.
Passing the full assessment means AIMES can provide assurance to the NHS that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly. This is a fantastic start to 2019 as AIMES look to further develop strong working relationships with NHS Trusts across the country. AIMES would like to thank everyone for their hard work on this as it required a company wide effort from all departments.
