IT Governance Ltd
, the leading experts in information security and N3 compliance, have reported that Ubisys
has successfully connected to the NHS N3 network after receiving the FastTrack™ N3/IG Toolkit Consultancy Service .
This service ensured Ubisys (a mobile data capture solutions provider) achieved N3 connection cost-effectively.
Steve Watkins, Director – Training and Consultancy at IT Governance, said, “We are delighted that Ubisys’ IG Toolkit application was approved and they are now connected to the N3 network. With the help of our experienced consultant, Ubisys met all of the IG Toolkit requirements within a short period of time and can now reap the benefits from their N3 connection.”
With NHS IG Toolkit compliance rapidly becoming a differentiator when the NHS is reviewing tenders, organisations that want to work with the NHS may be under pressure from fulfilling the IG Toolkit requirements to meet the annual deadline.
The NHS requires contractors to complete the IG Toolkit to demonstrate that they can be trusted to maintain the confidentiality and security of personal information. This in-turn increases public confidence that ‘the NHS’ and its partners can be trusted with personal data.
“The biggest business driver to organisations for achieving N3 connection is, of course, that they are better positioned to win contracts with the NHS. However, there are further tangible benefits from complying with the IG Toolkit. These include increased credibility and confidence in the organisation as a whole, improved stakeholder satisfaction as a result of improved information security and more efficient business operations” added Watkins.
The IT Governance FastTrack™ N3/IG Toolkit Consultancy Service
is specifically designed to help small organisations, that have 20 employees or fewer, and which are based at a single location, to achieve N3 compliance in just three months for the fixed-fee of £5,000 (excl. travel and third party certification fees).
The FastTrack™ N3/IG Toolkit Consultancy Service
includes gap Analysis, completion of the N3 application form, completion of the IG Toolkit documentation, N3 and information security staff training, internal audit and report, risk assessment and final N3/IG Toolkit application online submission.
This is a great value consultancy package and will benefit organisations that need to submit the IG Toolkit v.10 by the 31st
March 2013 deadline.
