Computer and information security standards


This edition of The Royal Australian College General Practitioners (RACGP) Computer and information security standards (CISS) and the accompanying Computer and information security templates have been developed by the RACGP.

The RACGP gratefully acknowledges the following people, who were involved in the development, review and writing of this version of CISS:

  • Dr Patricia Williams PhD, eHealth Research Group, School of Computer and Security Science, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia
  • Members of the RACGP Computer and Information Security Standards Taskforce.

This project has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.

The information security compliance indicators for each Standard have been adapted from the work of Dr Patricia Williams: Capability Maturity Matrix for Medical Information Security (Williams PAH. A practical application of CMM to medical security capability. Information management and computer security 2008;16:58–73). The intellectual property relating to these capability matrices remains the property of Dr Patricia Williams.
