Selecting secure IT vendors toolkit


A new toolkit to assist healthcare providers to select secure information technology (IT) vendors has been released by the Australian Digital Health Agency. It is available from our Digital Health Cyber Security Centre.
The toolkit consists of:
  1. Guide to selecting secure IT Vendors - offers general advice, sample questions and an approach for assessing vendor responses.
  2. Vendor Template – can be used to capture vendor responses.
The Agency has developed the toolkit to support health professionals in their discussions with IT vendors about the security aspects of their products and services. The toolkit is not intended to be a comprehensive list of information security requirements. It provides some key discussion items for healthcare providers to start a more in-depth conversation with their IT vendors.
The new toolkit has been designed to accompany the simple steps outlined in the Agency’s Information Security Guide for small healthcare businesses. This supplements the range of existing security guidance materials that are offered by the Agency.
