Digital Governance Standards Institute publishes cyber resiliency standard for healthcare

This week, the Digital Governance Standards Institute and HealthCareCAN announced the official publication of Canadian national standard CAN/DGSI 118: Cyber Resiliency in Healthcare, which provides healthcare organizations with a framework to bolster their cyber resiliency measures to ensure the security and protection of sensitive patient data in an increasingly digital landscape.

“CAN/DGSI 118 offers a flexible yet comprehensive approach that takes into consideration the diverse range of healthcare organizations, technologies, and regulatory environments across Canada,” said Darryl Kingston, executive director of Digital Governance Standards Institute.

“By adopting this standard, healthcare organizations can establish a solid foundation for preventing, detecting, responding to, and recovering from cyber-attacks, ultimately ensuring the safety and confidentiality of patient data. We are happy to have worked with HealthCareCAN and Public Safety Canada on leading the development of a robust cybersecurity standard for delivery of healthcare services in Canada.”
