How secure is my data?
Our system is based on a sophisticated security infrastructure. It has also been subjected to appropriate security tests to monitor its implementation and effectiveness.
All information you provide to us is stored on cloud servers operated by leading operators with the highest levels of security. We can guarantee a very high level of protection of sensitive data, which is usually even higher than that of the software used by many doctors’ practices.
Any payment transactions carried out by our chosen third-party provider of payment processing services will be encrypted using Secured Sockets Layer technology.
All data is secure and encrypted in transmission and at rest using AES-256 encryption, with restricted access. We also have additional protocols such as transparent data encryption (TDE).
How can I be sure that you are handling and protecting my data how you describe?
We not only meet the UK and US standards for data security but we exceed them. We demonstrate this by regularly auditing our systems, both internally and externally.
Our various externally audited accreditations such as ISO27001, DTAC, DSPT, and Cyber Essentials + demonstrate our compliance to global security standards and should give you peace of mind.
