and privacy organizations


ISO 27001 is an international information security management standard from the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission

The leading approach and certification recognizes the health and robustness of an organization’s overall information security program, while helping an organization safely and securely manage and protect its assets in a systematic and cost-effective way

With a focus on confidentiality, integrity and availability, Glooko achieved the three-year ISO 27001 certification after an audit by TUV, an accredited international third-party firm, that attested that Glooko is compliant with the framework

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that allows organizations to measure their performance against the ten data security standards around people, processes and technology of the National Data Guardian, an organization in England that challenges the healthcare system to help ensure that citizens’ confidential information is safeguarded securely and used properly

All organizations that have access to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service patient data and systems must use this toolkit to provide assurance that they are practicing good data security and that personal information is handled correctly

Frequently asked questions


At Glooko, we work hard to ensure patients’ sensitive health data is secure, private and available only when it is needed

We know that health data is critical AND sensitive. Our digital health platform leverages security best practices, follows leading frameworks like the Health Information Trust Alliance Common Security Framework, and can show compliance to U.S. regulatory statutes like HIPAA to ensure that all customer data is safeguarded. All data is encrypted in transit and at rest using modern, well-regarded encryption methods and protocols, including two-step verification and single sign-on (SSO)

We have independent third parties regularly conduct penetration testing and independent cybersecurity risk assessments, and we monitor our platform for vulnerabilities and any unusual behavior. Our connected care platform is designed for redundancy and resiliency, and we have strong policies, procedures and practices to assure security through over 270 technical, organizational and procedural controls


We are protective of sensitive personal data, and we will not share identifiable data without consent

If Glooko services are used through a healthcare provider, then the care provider will work with his or her patient to manage the patient’s diabetes, and the patient’s data will be available to the provider, for example when the patient visits his or her doctor

In that case, our services are just a portion of the healthcare operations of the healthcare provider, just like any other system they may use to provide a patient with care


At Glooko, our practices ensure that security and privacy remain paramount and are not dismissed for expediency or profit

We have documented policies that lay out our expectations for security and privacy. We have a formal, adopted data ethics policy that outlines the proper treatment of sensitive data

We have a governance board for security and privacy that helps drive critical decisions and ensures proper prioritization and resource allocation for security and privacy efforts

Employees undergo regular training on data privacy and security, and follow strict access control and password management protocols

Glooko’s leadership team truly believes that the effort to lead in data security and privacy protection is worth it, because trust with our customers and partners is worth it
