  • What is a QuickScan and what is the use of it?

    A QuickScan is also called a pre-audit. By means of a pre-audit, the organization knows to what extent it already meets a certain standard.

The advantage of a pre-audit is that there is a smooth transition from phase 1 to phase 2 in the audit trail, so that phase 1 ultimately entails less costs.

  • What is the difference between ISO 27001 and NEN 7510?

    The basis of both standards is the same. NEN 7510 is specifically for organizations that process personal health information. This standard has designated 3 additional control measures and a care-specific control measure for 33 existing control measures.
