Everrtech was no stranger to risk assessments, given it worked in a highly regulated industry. Despite this, it found this stage of risk analysis helpful and benefited from CertPro’s experience and skills, notably in meeting ISO 27001 and HIPAA requirements.
The experienced consultants at CertPro combined their work mechanism for Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) for risk assessment concerning both ISMS and HIPAA. This reduced the time constraints on Everrtech’s managers while also allowing them to produce meaningful assessment reports and all of the relevant documentation required by the Standards.
Bringing awareness of the sensitivity of working with medical data and the importance of information security is a major milestone in this project. Accordingly, this was attended by all members of staff from bottom to top.
5. Developing an Integrated Management System
Everrtech as an organization has previously built a variety of excellent policies, processes, and implementation strategies for ISO 13485:2016* prior to the initiation of the ISO 27001 and HIPAA certification programs. The company had always put a high value on protecting and safeguarding client information. CertPro was able to aid in advising Everrtech’s management system to adopt continuous improvement features, ensuring that best practices were followed consistently. The integration of the incident reporting process, as well as remedial and preventative processes, was the best example of this.
Everrtech on the advice of CertPro implemented reporting mechanism where employees were urged to submit any incidents to a central location monitored by CISO and a review team so that the Information Security and HIPAA could be dealt with at once.
Involvement of Staff and Top Management
Since the first day of initiating the HIPAA and ISMS project, the Executive Management Team was unanimous in its support for both frameworks. They were always seen as a logical extension of the organization’s commitment to protect its members’ interests, avoid complacency and continually improve management systems, and adopt best practices in securing information.

2. Classification of Information
Overall, Everrtech believes that by implementing a more structured approach as suggested by CertPro, it will be better prepared to avoid disruption in the first place and be confident in minimizing disruption in the case of an occurrence. This particularly benefitted them with US based clients, who saw Everrtech fit to handle PHI without any discontinuity in their service.
