How Safe Is Your Data? Really?
As technology continues evolve and be used to house some of our most important information, how can you ensure that your stored data is secure?
Data privacy and security have been topics that employers, employees and general consumers have always been interested in. As time passes and as we install “updates” to our software and lives, we are all becoming increasingly concerned with who has access to our data, what type of data they have access to, how they are using our data to further their own agendas and how our habits are unwittingly providing organizations with insight into our lives and consumer habits.
It begs the question: Who owns my data?
According to a PwC recently published article, 85% of consumers surveyed wish that there were more companies they could trust with their data and 83% of those surveyed want MORE control over how their own data is utilized.
As a corporation that is the custodian of Personal Health Information (PHI) for over 3 million individuals globally, CoreHealth Technologies takes data privacy and security extremely seriously. We understand that our clients (and the clients of our clients!) put their trust in us to house some of the most sensitive nature: health data.
As a wellness provider, your client's employee data must be protected and secure so it's important to know the questions to ask when considering wellness technology and the provider. When implementing a new corporate wellness platform, it's vital to also perform a security and privacy assessment as part of your due diligence process. Know the Top 10 Security Questions When Choosing Wellness Technology.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the industry standard used for third-party accredited certifications and is supported by Code of Practice document ISO/IEC 27001. Both were developed through consensus of the international community with a membership of over 47 national standards bodies.
