About the National Health Service Statement of Compliance:
The Information Governance Statement of Compliance (IG SoC) is the process by which organizations enter into an agreement with NHS CFH for access to the NHS National Network (N3). The process includes elements that set out terms and conditions for use of NHS CFH systems and services including the N3, in order to preserve the integrity of those systems and services.
The steps in the IG SoC process set out a range of security related requirements which must be satisfied in order for an organization to be able to provide assurances in respect of safeguarding the N3 network and information assets that may be accessed.
