The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced from 25 May 2018. This means that the same privacy legislation will apply throughout the European Union from that date. As a healthcare provider, you are accountable and the statutory Responsible Person for your patients’ data. But how do you keep control of the service providers you do business with, and how can you make sure they handle privacy-sensitive data as conscientiously as you do?
As an IT provider in the healthcare sector, security and transparency are our top priority. One of the ways in which we achieve this is by ensuring we qualify for the appropriate certificates. Being ISO 27001, ISO 27799 and NEN 7510 certified, VANAD Enovation is compliant with the latest standards for information security in healthcare. This demonstrates we are fully committed to ensuring the security, availability, integrity and confidentiality of your data.
Our processes and procedures have been assessed by accredited certification body DEKRA. You can read more about this process and our collaboration with DEKRA HERE, in an interview with our Information Security Officers Bianca Brooijmans and Dré Lameir.
We recognise that information security is a continuous process and that our application environments need to be continually updated with the latest security measures. For that reason, VANAD Enovation subjects its services and environments to periodic testing. All services and the platform are covered by a two-year cycle of (external) penetration tests. VANAD Enovation has its pen tests conducted by NorthWave B.V.
In addition, VANAD Enovation has set up a Security Operations Centre (SOC) that continuously launches infiltration tests from an external location. VANAD Enovation also uses continuous, real-time monitoring by SSL Labs, which ensures we receive a warning as soon as our services drop below the A rating.
For 35 years now, VANAD Enovation has been the premier player in healthcare communication, and data protection is an essential area of attention in performing our operational activities. Protecting individual rights and complying with privacy legislation are our hallmarks. Our privacy statement covers our treatment of data traceable to natural persons (‘Personal Data’ within the meaning of the privacy legislation) that we gather when you interact with our website or services.

* We need to be able to verify that you are the person to whom the personal data pertain in order to prevent anyone else from gaining access to these data under a false name. An identity can be verified by means of a driving license, passport or other recognized identity document. You can only apply for access if you are 16 years of age or older and are not under legal restraint. For people not meeting these criteria, such an application must be submitted by a legal representative. In that case, our response will also be made to this representative. The copy of your identity document will not be stored or processed for purposes other than the verification linked to the application concerning personal data. We also recommend marking the copy with the date of submission or another distinguishing mark to prevent it being used for other, potentially fraudulent, purposes.
