Due to the nature of the industry it means users handle a lot of highly sensitive patient information and it is vital that this data is protected at all times. A lot of people when they think of cloud technology they have doubts over the security of the solution, worrying that it’s somehow less secure than having the data on-site in a server they can see. In reality, cloud-based solutions actually provide you with better security for your confidential medial data. Data is stored off-site in secure data centres which remove any environmental risks to your data (fire and flood) and the level of encryption offered from cloud technology goes beyond traditional setups.
At Atlas Cloud our UK based data centres are ISO 27001 certified and we also hold accreditations for BS10012 (which shows that we operate within the GDPR regulations), Cyber Essentials and we are G-Cloud approved. These certifications show our dedication to your security and by joining us your organisation will immediately benefit from enhanced security.
Cloud-technology also brings with it an extra level of device security as no data is stored on the actual device, instead it is just accessed via the cloud. This means, should you lose or have a device stolen you’ll lose no patient data (as your session will simply be remotely locked). Additionally, whenever new security patches are released we will apply them to all users immediately so no one has any outdated operating systems.
