Our information security policy
Tyro Health is committed to optimising our information security performance consistent with our risk appetite. In providing services to our clients, Tyro Health has access to their information and we expect that all staff and contractors have a clear understanding of their information security obligations. Tyro Health also has its own information, much of which needs to be secured to enable the business to operate effectively.
As a medical insurance claims software developer for our clients, we are committed to industry standards for the development lifecycle and the incorporation of information security into each phase of this lifecycle. We will ensure that information security is a key element of this and our ongoing client servicing.
To assist us in assuring our information security performance, we are committed to the implementation, maintenance and continual improvement of our Information Security Management System (“ISMS”). Our ISMS is ISO 27001 certified and compliant. The purpose of this ISMS and this policy is to achieve the following objectives:
- Confidentiality – ensuring that information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorised individuals, entities or processes;
- Integrity – maintaining the consistency, accuracy, and trustworthiness of information over its entire life cycle;
- Availability – ensuring that information is both accessible and usable upon demand by an authorised party.
We are committed to ensuring that our ISMS is capable of meeting owners, clients and legal requirements for information security. To achieve this end, we are fully committed to the recruiting and skilling of our staff to deliver information security outcomes that are consistent with our risk appetite.
