OncoDNA (“OncoDNA or “the Company”), the healthcare technology company making precision medicine a reality, announces having received ISO 27001 :2013 certification for information security management and storage.

 

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international standard that outline the requirements for an optimal management of information security management systems.

The certification of OncoDNA includes the entire IT infrastructure where the data is stored and processed for the provision of OncoDNA’s services as well as the support processes for the management of the ISMS (Management, Risk Management, Human Resources & Purchase).

 

Jean-Pol Detiffe, Chief Executive Officer of OncoDNA, said:

This certification is an essential piece for the development of OncoDNA as well as the commercialization of our OncoKDM platform. This decision platform is turning cancer data into knowledge driven medicine. It enables lab directors and pathologists to import their raw molecular data directly into our platform. In no more than 1 or 2 days, OncoKDM will get back to the lab manager with a useful and comprehensive report that can be reviewed, validated and then transferred to the oncologist to support his patient treatment decision. With the ISO 27001 certification OncoDNA is confirming the very high quality and security standard used benefiting cancer care for the patient.

The international standard ISO 27001 is awarded to a company for best practices for information security management systems. Compliance with these standards demonstrates OncoDNA commitment to a repeatable, continuously improving, risk-based security program.
