DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH —
INFORMATION SECURITY POLICY
223. Hon ALISON XAMON to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the Auditor General's
information systems audit report of August 2018, specifically recommendation 3
of the patient medical system audit.
(1) Has the
department reviewed its information security policies to apply appropriate
controls to protect sensitive information and embed the policy across the Western
Australian Department of Health?
(2) If not, could the minister please
provide an update on the progress of this project?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) Yes. The
Department of Health has an information security policy that is mandatory
across the WA health system. This policy is regularly reviewed in conjunction
with health support services.
(2) Not applicable.
