How does LeoMed Technologies Inc. manage privacy compliance?
LeoMed’s security requirements are powered by MedStack, a leading privacy compliance hosting platform built specifically for the needs of the digital health industry.
LeoMed’s application environment has been wrapped with all of the technical controls and safeguards required for compliance. Each element of our security architecture ties back to a specific policy of ISO 27001. These policies are then mapped to the corresponding privacy frameworks and industry standards where LeoMed operates. MedStack’s Active Compliance Monitoring System provides code-generated and machine-readable privacy policies, allowing us to demonstrate proof of meeting these requirements at any given point in time.
What is MedStack?
MedStack is a privacy compliance automation platform that builds, measures, and actively manages compliance atop the public cloud. MedStack provides secure, flexible, single-tenant cloud infrastructure tailored to LeoMed’s unique requirements, with pre-written, code-generated and real-time auditable privacy policies around complex frameworks such as HIPAA, NIST, PHIPA, PIPEDA, and HITECH. MedStack successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type I audit in January 2020, now making easier and faster for LeoMed to complete their own SOC 2 audit.
What compliance commitments are made?
Encryption, network security, monitoring, audit logging, backups, and certificate and key management are each among the various controls implemented, enforced, and documented by MedStack’s platform.
