Södersjukhuset (Stockholm South General Hospital) is an acute care hospital in an urban setting, with around 4,500 employees and a focus on the major common diseases. Södersjukhuset has the largest emergency department in the Nordic region and Sweden’s largest maternity unit, with approximately 7,500 births every year.
Ensuring excellent care and guaranteeing patient safety requires both secure IT systems and safe employee practices. For this reason, Södersjukhuset works systematically and organisationally with its information and IT security requirements, which apply to both business managers and system managers. Cybercom’s Compliance Portal IT support tool helps to reinforce these efforts.
Sverker Forsberg, Information security officer at Södersjukhuset, says “For our internal processes and procedures we have ensured that new IT support cannot be deployed here until it has undergone an IT security assessment using the Compliance Portal. This means we can be certain about what information is processed in the systems and that the system owners can take responsibility for adequate security measures.”
