Information Security Management System (ISMS)
Purpose of ISMS
As a modern, forward-looking business, Primary Care IT recognises at senior levels the need to ensure that its business operates smoothly and without interruption for the benefit of its customers, shareholders and other stakeholders.
In order to provide such a level of continuous operation, Primary Care IT has implemented an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in line with the International Standard for Information Security, ISO/IEC 27001. This standard defines the requirements for an ISMS based on internationally recognised best practice.
The operation of the ISMS has many benefits for the business, including:
– Protection of revenue streams and company profitability
– Ensuring the supply of goods and services to customers
– Maintenance and enhancement of shareholder value
– Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements
