  15. 15. Health Informatics Centre • Extraction takes minutes • Data released is standardised – the same regardless of Data Analyst that completes the work • A history is recorded of all changes to data over time • Data released now will be in the same format as in 5 years from now • Metadata has been added • Methods for transforming and validations have been added across all data sets • Tools to manage and explore the data are available to Data Management team and researchers • Audit and Logging all automated • Major work towards integration of image and genomic data

  17. 17. Health Informatics Centre • Standard restrictive VDI solution • VMWare View / Horizon
  18. 18. Health Informatics Centre • AppVolumes used for Applications • Bring Your Own License • Lots of Application Variations!
  19. 19. Health Informatics Centre • There are many types of ISO Certification. • We have 27001:2013 – Certificate Number: 2016/2269 • ISO 27001:2013 is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation's information risk management processes. What is ISO27001?
  20. 20. Health Informatics Centre Why ISO27001 certification? • Independent set of standards – so rather than constantly having to think what documents and processes we should have in place and reinventing the wheel, ISO gives us this! • Gives confidence to other organisations we work with e.g. NHS, main University. • Reduces other documentation requirements for governance, as we can just reference ISO documentation. • Improves the working practices of HIC. This has been particularly the case with our hardware infrastructure. • Key towards Scottish Government Safe Haven Accreditation.
  21. 21. Health Informatics Centre Scottish Government Safe Haven Accreditation • 27001 standard controls PLUS some additional ones specific to Safe Havens. • Reviewed by Scottish Government eHealth. • Documentation Required: • Risk Assessment Doc • Mapping of Controls

  23. 23. Health Informatics Centre Scope “The provision of data to researchers via safe haven environment, secure patient recruitment, data collection using software tools, data entry, the development and operation of web based applications and all assets underpinning the provision of those services from the locations of HIC premises at Ninewells Hospital and data centres within the University of Dundee Campus”
  24. 24. Health Informatics Centre ISMS Controls Status with Statement of Applicability and Gaps
  25. 25. Health Informatics Centre ISO Controls – Made up of HIC specific ones and University/NHS general controls University of Dundee Security Policies University of Dundee HR Policies and Procedures (and NHS where appropriate as we have honorary contracts) HIC HR Procedures/Training/Policies HIC Security Policies A7: Human Resource SecurityA5: Information Security Policies A6: Organisation of Information security University of Dundee Security Policies HIC Security Policies, SOPS, Procedures, Work Instructions and Service Descriptions
  26. 26. Health Informatics Centre Document Types and Review Static & Formally Approved: HIC Exec & HIC Information Governance Committee • Policies • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) • Risk Management Doc • Information Security Management System (ISMS) Manual • Business Continuity Plan Just HIC Exec • Procedures Working Documents (technical): Relevant Technical Manager • Service Descriptions • Work Instructions • Asset and Responsibility Matrix • Disaster Recovery Plans • Infrastructure Diagrams
  27. 27. Health Informatics Centre Structure of Docs in Box Become aware of an improvement of our current procedure Take a copy of Procedure from “Live” folder and move to “Under Development”. Draft change using tracked changes. Ask Technical Manager to review. Technical Manager moves the doc they have approved to “Awaiting Approval Folder” and asks for it to be included in HIC Exec Meeting Agenda for review. If approved at HIC Exec either formally approved or sent to HIC Information Governance Committee for additional formal approval (if document type requires) Approved doc is moved to “Live” folder by HIC Admin Procedure Changes

  29. 29. Health Informatics Centre Timelines • Help from University’s Information Security Officer (Graham McKay) to get us up to the required standard. • Passed our Stage 1 audit of our documentation in June 2015. • Passed our Stage 2 audit of our systems (do we do what we say we do in our documentation) in Jan 2016. • Passed second Stage 2 audit July 2016 • Now have full audits every 6 months for the next 3 years!
