BleepaⓇ builds on robust data management security
· Cyber Essentials Plus Certified
· ISO 27001 compliant
London, 19 January 2021: Feedback plc (AIM: FDBK, "Feedback" or the "Company"), the specialist medical imaging technology company, today announces it has bolstered its data management security with certification of Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO 27001 for its flagship imaging-based communication platform, Bleepa. The enhanced data management protection will provide customers and clinicians with added confidence in the safety of Bleepa's data security.
Bleepa, a secure instant messaging platform which facilitates the sharing of clinical grade medical images between personal devices, is an essential tool to enable remote and secure communications between clinicians and their teams. Security of data is of the utmost importance for remote communications and Feedback continuously reviews and updates its security to comply with international standards.
The Cyber Essentials Plus audit is a UK Government backed scheme to enable organisations to guard against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks and demonstrates a commitment to cyber security.
ISO 27001 is the international standard that sets out the specification for an information security management system (ISMS). Its best-practice approach helps organisations manage their information security by addressing people and processes as well as technology.
Both certificates are sought by the Company's healthcare customers and will bolster customer confidence in the security of the Bleepa platform.
Dr Tom Oakley, CEO of Feedback, commented:
"Feedback seeks to liberate frontline clinicians from inadequate, cumbersome operational systems by safely simplifying how they communicate with each other and how they access information about patients, most notably medical imaging. The emphasis here is on safety. As a medical device manufacturer, we already adhere to stringent quality processes that comply with ISO 13485, however, being a digital medical device brings new challenges to safety and quality that are not reflected in traditional medical device certification. We have sought to address these challenges and demonstrate our commitment to data security as rigorously as the processes which we apply to ensuring quality. Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO 27001 confirm the security of Bleepa as a platform just as ISO 13485 confirms the quality and safety of its manufacture. This combined certification is testament to our commitment to providing clinicians with the right tools for the job and will give customers confidence about the security of data on the platform."
