Hexfit is ISO/IEC 27001 certified

In today's digital age, data is both a precious and a fragile commodity, so IT security and the protection of personal information are of paramount importance.

Data confidentiality, privacy protection, trust and system integrity: these are all issues on which Hexfit has always worked hard, and which are now officially certified with ISO 27001 certification.

Securing data: a dual obligation

Guaranteeing the security and confidentiality of data is an ethical and legalobligation for those who manage it. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR )frames the way in which health data must be collected, stored and used in Europe .

When itcomes tohealthcare data, the requirements go even further: hosting providers (the servers on which data is stored) must comply with specific healthcare sector requirements, such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance in the USA or the Health Data Directive in the European Union, including HDS (Hébergement de Données de Santé).

These labels require the implementation of advanced security measures such as data encryption, access and authorization management, as well as robust backup and recovery protocols to ensure the continued availability of data.PLEASE NOTE: A company in breach of these legal obligations can incur fines of up to 4% of its worldwide annual sales or 20 million euros, in addition to severe legal consequences, loss of customers and fall in reputation... now that's chilling!

Companies and professionals in the fitness, rehabilitation, physical preparation and health-sports sectors follow individual objectives and manage health data: they are therefore naturally subject to this.

Hexfit obtains ISO/IEC 27001 certification - Information systems security

Hexfit, a leading provider of software solutions for the management of healthcare objectives, has recently obtained ISO 27001 certification .

This is a strategic investment in data security, demonstrating a firm commitment to the protection of its customers' sensitive information, and in turn, the protection of patient, coachee and athlete data.ISO 27001 certification guarantees the protection, improvement and performance of the information system, through the implementation of a rigorous framework and internal processes built on the international reference standard, ISO 27001.

"ISO 27001 certification demonstrates the implementation of an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) (...) it defines a methodology for identifying cyber threats, controlling the risks associated with critical information managed by the organization, implementing appropriate protection measures to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information."Hexfit stands out asthe only health goal tracking software to have achieved ISO certification, the fruit of a considerable investment in time and resources. The ISO certification process is renowned for its rigor and complexity, which explains why few publishers choose to commit to this approach. But in a landscape where ransomware attacks targeting healthcare data are multiplying, the security of this information is of paramount importance. Given the nature of the data managed by our customers - personal and healthcare data - we have chosen to raise the level of security.
