These standards provide a list of information security requirements, which include the formalization of general policies and processing procedures. These documents aim to ensure throughout the life cycle of the data we process:

  • Availability: the data is accessible to the people who need it;
  • Confidentiality: only to those who need it;
  • Integrity: they have not been altered during this life cycle;
  • Traceability: data processing is logged.

These standards are published by independent organizations, AFNOR for ISO27001 and the Agence du Numérique en Santé for HDS. Their implementation is controlled by auditors certified by these agencies, which guarantees the reliability of certifications.
