Data Security Assessment

Identify, understand and remediate vulnerabilities

The Data Security Assessment (DSA) is is designed to identify vulnerabilities and understand and remediate areas of high risk.

The DSA is:

  • Based on learnings from decades of assessing the preparedness of NHS Trusts in the UK, adapted for the Australian market and standards.
  • Completed annually, the DSA includes a mix of on-site and off-site testing, tailored recommendations and action plan, re-testing and progress tracking.
