Understanding NEN 7510: An Introduction to Healthcare Information Security
NEN 7510 is a Dutch standard based on the international standard ISO/IEC 271001 that specifies the information security requirements for the healthcare sector. Since the patient’s privacy and data protection are a priority in healthcare, complying with NEN 7510 has a significant added value for Dutch health institutions. Nevertheless, adhering to the standards and keeping track of the procedure can be challenging for healthcare organizations at the beginning of their journey. Factors such as budget constraints, limited resources, or a limitation of specialised expertise can present formidable challenges.
Implementation and certification of NEN 7510
NEN 7510 poses a framework for healthcare organizations to safeguard the confidentiality of patients’ information while having access to the important data required to assist their patients.Our partner, The Royal Netherlands Standardization Institute (NEN), made the standards freely available and provides trainings.
However, it is worth noting that NEN 7510 comprises an extensive number of requirements, each of which must be tailored to suit the unique context of the organization. Implementation of the standard is a long process and can become complex. Furthermore, in most instances, NEN 7510 is only one of the standards out of many the business needs to comply with. While the compliance is getting more important in the current cyber landscape, SMEs and IT managers have increasing tasks and responsibilities. Especially if your business is a foreign company moved to the Netherlands, it can be more overwhelming as NEN 7510 is a Dutch standard and English tools are limited.
