Housing Associations

Risk management, security and privacy within housing associations

Security incidents are about more than IT and potential financial risks alone. Housing associations manage a lot of personal data, and safeguarding tenant privacy and confidentiality of information about people but also objects is essential. Media reports of data breaches and hacks are increasingly affecting housing associations as well.


Demonstrated digital resilience

Increasing regulatory burden and compliance requirements are adding to the burden of housing associations. Do you recognize this? Then our platform can help your organization with risk management and the design and implementation of information security and privacy protection through an ISMS and/or PIMS. A risk-based approach is essential in order to work efficiently and effectively.

Several surveys show that housing associations see the value and necessity of good risk management and want to be in control. Especially in the field of information security and privacy. The sector is working hard on further digitalization and of course this includes the necessary digital resilience. Internal and external regulators attach increasing value to optimal demonstrable digital resilience.

To get a handle on the risks and challenges facing the industry, a structured approach is indispensable. Risks must be related to appropriate control measures and a cyclical approach should lead to continuous improvement.


Baseline Information Security (Housing) Corporations

The BIC is the information security standard for housing associations. The goal of the BIC is to make the sector more digitally secure. Deploying the BIC offers housing associations many benefits such as working efficiently, reduced audit burden and being demonstrably in control.

Other standards such as the ISO27001/27002 also offer these benefits. A great addition to these standards is the ISO27701. This is the standard in the field of privacy protection and helps you become compliant with the AVG/GDPR (data privacy). Whatever standard you choose, Perium offers optimal support. You get a grip on your (digital) risks and the mitigation of these risks using your control measures. Our platform gives you real-time insight into your risks, control measures and improvement plans. This allows you to be efficiently and effectively and demonstrably in control.
