The second edition of the RACGP Computer and information security standards (CISS) provides general practices with information and recommendations that will raise awareness of contemporary security issues and help protect against potential exposure to loss of sensitive data.
The CISS provides general practice with a framework for evaluating risks, and guidance and solutions to improve competency and capacity in computer and information security. This edition includes additional information to support GPs and their practice teams develop policies that relate to participation with the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR).
The Computer and information security templates enable general practices to build a comprehensive suite of computer and information security policies and procedures. This document is available as an interactive PDF format and a Microsoft Word document, for practices to download, fill out and save electronically.
This project has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.
