Nico.lab welcomes the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

By | News

On May the 25th, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in the European Union. With the GDPR, the EU aims to protect the privacy and personal data of all citizens. The GDPR gives every individual primary control over his/her data, and holds all companies and organizations accountable for safe and legitimate processing of this data.

The GDPR has an important impact on the collection and processing of medical data. As a processor of sensitive medical data, Nico.lab welcomes and emphasizes compliance with the GDPR. Nico.lab incorporates security of StrokeViewer as one of its core values in the development of StrokeViewer, making StrokeViewer secure-by-design. Also, StrokeViewer only shows the necessary information for diagnostic purposes “by default”, and can be tailored per hospital. To ensure the utmost quality of our company Infomation Security Management System (ISMS), Nico.lab is supported by fore-front legal offices specialized in medical technology.

We are happy to answer any questions regarding privacy and security. Please send a message via our contact page. For further information regarding the GDPR, please read the information provided by the EU.
