With sector-wide quality improvement as our ultimate goal, we collaborate with the Dutch Association of Hospitals (NVZ) and the Dutch Federation of University Medical Centers (NFU).

NVZ Code of Conduct Audit

We offer the NVZ Code of Conduct Audit, designed to validate your organization's commitment to robust security measures. This audit assesses critical areas such as:

  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Logging
  • Monitoring
  • Awareness

Any shortcomings must be followed up and verified again. This concerns an Assurance audit aimed at providing an opinion with a reasonable degree of certainty in accordance with the NOREA Guideline 3000 for Assurance engagements.

Baseline Audit NEN 7510

With a baseline audit, an organization can demonstrate that it is "in control" of information security and / or gain insight into where improvements can still be made. The standard for this is NEN 7510. This baseline audit consists of 4 steps:

  1. Scope
  2. Inventory and measurement
  3. Analysis
  4. Reporting

In the report you will find a summary of the main findings and the related risks explained with a heat map. This provides support in prioritizing improvement measures and providing insight into improvements based on the delta measurements. The organization draws up a list of action points together with the Auditor. The integral findings and actions are included in an appendix and are provided in an Excel file.


A Secura IT Auditor (RE) registered with the NOREA, with specific expertise in the sector, is responsible for conducting the audits.
