This is Iconfirm

Iconfirm is an independent collaboration hub for practical privacy

Iconfirm makes privacy easier and contributes to trustworthy processing of personal data.
We provide a practical and user-friendly solution that puts the individual in the core of GDPR adherence.

Secure platform

Our technology was originally designed for the processing of patient data that is used by about 1300 clinics/hospitals, 30 insurance companies and their patients for efficient collaboration throughout a patient course.

In December 2016, a portion of the source code was carved out to Iconfirm. Since then the software has been tailored to meet the requirements of GDPR. 

We build trust

Dedicated to practical privacy

GDPR demands that organisations must be able to demonstrate compliance. Solving this through ad-hoc reporting and manual processes are inefficient, costly and risky. Iconfirm is focused on creating practical solutions that are easy to incorporate.  

Digitalisation ensures integrity, data quality and governance as part of ordinary work processes. Finance and accounting are often seamlessly integrated into the business processes for efficient reporting to management, auditors and authorities. Privacy and security should be embedded in a similar way. 

Accountability in processes and transparency builds trust and confidence.
