Keeping Honeysuckle Health in great health

Honeysuckle Health is an Australian health services and specialist data science company creating better pathways to better health. It does this by understanding its customers’ current and future health needs, helping them to prevent and manage disease risk and make better treatment decisions.

What was the challenge for Honeysuckle Health?

Honeysuckle Health plays a pivotal role in the Australian and New Zealand healthcare systems by generating insights from data to guide activity and investment. It took the wise decision to get ISO 27001 certified as the best possible assurance against the rapidly increasing information security threats across the health sector. But after achieving certification, Information Security Manager Daniel Clements recognised that there were certain limitations to overcome when it came to effectively maintaining Honeysuckle Health’s information security management system.

That’s where ISMS.online came in.

Why did you choose ISMS.online?

“I was familiar with ISMS.online as I’d been using the website as a useful information source during our original certification process. So, when I went looking for a solution for ongoing management of our ISMS the decision to go with ISMS.online was easy. I was already confident of their understanding of the subject matter and the platform was simple, intuitive to use and flexible enough to work with systems embedded in other areas of our business.”Daniel Clements, Information Security Manager at Honeysuckle Health

What’s impressed you about the platform?

“Migrating our existing work onto the platform was quick and simple, which was important to ensure we maintained the integrity of the work already done. In terms of features, the ‘linked work’ function in the platform has been a game changer for us. Not only does it enable us to clearly link work within the ISMS ecosystem it enables us to link to work held in external systems as well. There’s no question that having this level of a joined-up view – with individual access for interested parties managed at the click of a mouse – is the way to demonstrate maximum assurance.”

Health is widely reported as the most highly targeted by increasing threats to information security. That’s why Honeysuckle Health uses ISMS.online to manage their sector specific standards too.

“ISMS.online is brilliant for ISO 27001 but an additional benefit for us is being able to seamlessly manage our Australian health-industry specific standards in the same place, with the same tools. Like everyone in health, security and data privacy are really high on the agenda of our customers and our supply chain. Being able to demonstrate our current posture to those interested parties with such ease is invaluable to our reputation and the assurance we can give those relationships.”

Would you recommend ISMS.online?

“Absolutely. Thankfully, the days of managing information security and data privacy with a disconnected ISMS are long gone. ISMS.online will save you time and money towards ISO 27001 certification, make it simple to maintain, plus give you the foundation to build your compliance posture with standards and frameworks that are specific to your sector.”

Everyone we helped go for an ISO 27001 audit passed first time. You could too.
