    Compliance with world class industry standards verified by third parties

    Health Organizations around the world have entrusted Microsoft to help protect their data. Microsoft values this trust, and the privacy and security of your data is one of our top concerns. Microsoft strives to take a leadership role when it comes to security, privacy, and compliance practices in the cloud. Microsoft partners with customers to help them address a wide range of international, country, and industry-specific regulatory requirements including HIPAA, ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Audit and Certification, FISMA, and the United Kingdom G-Cloud OFFICIAL Accreditation. By providing customers with compliant, independently verified cloud services, Microsoft makes it easier for customers to achieve compliance for the infrastructure and applications they run in Azure.
