Information Security Policy

www.iCure.com

1. Introduction

The iCure universe is built on trust. Guaranteeing the confidentiality of the data that are entrusted to us is our highest priority.

The Information Security Policy of iCure abstracts the security concept that permeates every activity and abides by the ISO 27001:2013 requirements for Information Security, so that we ensure the security of the data that iCure and its clients manage.

Every employee, contractor, consultant, supplier and client of iCure is bound by our Information Security Policy.

2. Our Policy

iCure is committed to protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the service it provides and the data it manages. iCure also considers protecting the privacy of its employees, partners, suppliers, clients and their customers as a fundamental security aspect.

iCure complies with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the protection of information assets and voluntarily commits itself to the provisions of the ISO 27001:2013.

3. Information Security Definitions

Confidentiality refers to iCure’s ability to protect information against disclosure. Attacks, such as network reconnaissance, database breaches or electronic eavesdropping or inadvertent information revealing through poor practices.

Integrity is about ensuring that information is not tampered with during or after submission. Data integrity can be compromised by accident or on purpose, by evading intrusion detection or changing file configurations to allow unwanted access.

Availability requires organizations to have up-and-running systems, networks, and applications to guarantee authorized users’ access to information without any interruption or waiting. The nature of data entrusted to us requires a higher-than-average availability.

Privacy is the right of individuals to control the collection, use, and disclosure of their personal information. Our privacy policies are based on the GDPR(https://gdpr-info.eu/) and can be augmented by added requirements of specific clients or law areas.

4. Risk Assessment

The main threats iCure is facing as a company are:

  1. Data Theft;
  2. Data Deletion;
  3. Denial of Service attacks;
  4. Malware;
  5. Blackmail and Extortion.

As providers of a solution used by developers active in Healthcare, we also have to anticipate the risks of:

  1. Attacks on our clients’ data, which could lead to major social damages and a loss of trust in our solution;
  2. Abuse of our solution by ill-intentioned clients, that could impact the quality of the service provided to the rest of our clients.

The motivation of the attackers in the latter cases can range from financial gain to political or ideological motivations.

A last risk is linked to the nature of the healthcare data we handle. We must ensure, that the data we handle are not used for purposes other than those for which they were collected:

A piece of data collected from a patient for the purpose of a medical consultation should not be available to third parties, not even a government agency.

5. Risk Management

The main principles we apply to manage the risks we face are:

  1. Confidentiality by design: All sensitive data is encrypted end-to-end before being stored in our databases. We do not have any access to the data we store. Our client’s customers are the only ones who can decrypt the data we store.
  2. Anonymization by design: Healthcare information that has to be stored unencrypted is always anonymized using end-to-end encryption scheme. This means that the link between the healthcare and administrative information must be encrypted.

Those two principles allow us to minimize the risks of data theft, blackmail, extortion, and coercion by government agency.

  1. Multiple real-time replicas, with automatic failover: We use a distributed database architecture to ensure that our data is available at all times. We use a master-master architecture, each data is replicated at least 3 times. Snapshots are taken every day to ensure that we can restore the data in case of a malevolent deletion event.
  2. Automatic password rotations: no single password can be used for more than 48 hours. Passwords are automatically rotated every 24 hours. In case of a password leak, we can limit the window of opportunity for an attack.

Those two principles allow us to minimise the risks of data deletion, denial of service attacks, and malware.

  1. Minimization of the attack surface: we deploy our systems in the most minimal way. We only expose the network services that are strictly necessary.
  2. Strict dependency management: we only use open-source software that is regularly updated and audited by the community. We favor dependency management software and providers that minimize the risk of supply chain poisoning.

Those two principles allow iCure to minimise the risks of intrusion by vulnerability exploit or supply chain attacks, two risks that could lead to data theft or data deletion.
