ActiGraph complies with the principles of General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) and implements technological and organizational controls around data privacy and protection. We will support customers in meeting their GDPR requirements by entering into joint agreements that include the standard clauses regarding data processing, control, and transfer.
ActiGraph implements a security framework based on processes and controls to protect customer data and ensure compliance with applicable security regulations and standards. For data storage, processing, and application services, we leverage qualified cloud vendors; namely Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. These cloud providers meet a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards and regulations, such as ISO 27001, NIST, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2.
ActiGraph maintains a security plan for the applications it develops in accordance with the shared responsibility for using these cloud service vendors in a regulated environment. This plan includes technical controls around data encryption, key management, vulnerability detection, data segregation. ActiGraph IT policies also include endpoint protection, security patches, security awareness, incident management, and controls for data access.
ActiGraph complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and its amendments to ensure the protection of Protected Health Information (“PHI”). Safeguards that are currently used to ensure the protection of private health information include administrative procedures, physical data safeguards, electronic data access security, and network security that complies with legal requirements.
ActiGraph validates its regulated products to ensure they are compliant and fit for their intended use. We also work with researchers, scientists, data analysts, physicians, and clinical trial sponsors to assist them with leveraging our product documentation in their own validation objectives.
Our procedures and methods for computerized system validation, including hardware and software, are based on regulatory requirements and industry standards and guidance such as GAMP 5.
Validation of actigraphy monitoring and data outcomes derived by applying algorithms to actigraphy data extends beyond ActiGraph and into the domain of third parties.
