Public Sector and Health Care

Evolve North work within most sections of the Public Sector including, but not exclusive to: the NHS, local government, fire and rescue, police, and central government. Delivering both IT Security and Information Governance services, Evolve North's projects have included due diligence on suppliers and service providers.

One of only a handful of external consultancies to deliver information governance services into the NHS, including data protection impact assessments, system level security policy, diligence and ISB1596 guidance. We have worked with trusts, CCGs, ambulance services and mental health services. We have delivered IT security solutions including encryption, firewall, two factor authentication, web and email filtering, anti-ransomware and unified threat management to over 100 public sector clients, including large complex, distributed 16,000+ user environments.

Information governance projects have included ISO27001, ISB1596, PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and ISO22301. Our information governance team includes individuals who have worked within the public sector at very senior levels managing and delivering compliance for over 20 years, this is supported by wide ranging experience of other environments ensuring we can deliver the most effective solution.

We understand the financial constraints on the public sector and believe getting the best out of existing solutions and assets is the key to success by creating a significant benefit from a small amount of effort. The GDPR offers a significant challenge and opportunity for the public sector and we have experience of achieving that compliance as cost effectively as possible. With a very granular level of understanding of the challenges within the public sector and over 14 years of experience, we are well positioned to support both IT security and information governance initiatives.
