We are proud to announce that BaseClear has obtained the ISO27001 certification. ISO27001 is the most widely adopted information security standard in the world and BaseClear is the first genomics solution provider to obtain this certificate. “In a world that is more and more subject to security threats, it is key to rely on a partner that gives the top-priority to safety of information.
The certificate underlines the commitment of BaseClear to treat its customer data in a secure and confidential manner, “ said Director Bioinformatics and Security Officer Walter Pirovano. The standard imposes organizations to adopt an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in order to manage and treat security risks. Through a continuous cycle, business operation processes are evaluated and improved.
This guarantees a systematic approach to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and reduce information security risks. To achieve the ISO27001 certification, BaseClear underwent an in-depth risk-assessment thus reviewing all its information security policies. Compliance with the standard was assessed by DEKRA which is one of the world-leading auditing and inspection company. The certification is significant milestone in the ability of BaseClear to adhere to stringent international security standards.
