(February 23, 2022 New York, NY) Accorian, a leader in providing
best-in-class cyber security and compliance services, announced today that TMRW Life
Sciences, Inc. (TMRW) has achieved its ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification after a rigorous independent audit of its information security management systems. ISO/IEC
27001 is an international standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that is widely considered a global mark of excellence when it comes to managing information.
TMRW worked with Accorian, a consultancy specializing in technology risk assessment and ISO 27001 readiness, to prepare for the audit. There was a rigorous process implemented to ensure maximum security across all aspects of the TMRW platform.
“Threats to security of information are becoming more common and advanced each day. Our clients rely on us to ensure they achieve compliance with international best practices to manage all risks related to information security and that their information assets are always protected. TMRW achieving this certification shows their continued commitment to security,” says Premal Parikh, Founder & CEO, Accorian.
Achieving this certification is a major milestone on the TMRW security roadmap, and is one of many continued accreditations the company has in its sights. TMRW has an unwavering commitment to increasing standards of care, including the raising of the bar in relation to security through use of its innovative technology platform.
“Our secure platform provides fertility clinics with a critical digital chain of custody for patient specimens that will be used in invitro fertilization (IVF), automating clinic operations that for decades have been manual,” said Amit Gupta, Chief Information Officer at TMRW. “As a company, we are dedicated to bringing a new standard of care to the fertility space through the use of our technology, which helps clinics scale safely and offers patients comfort knowing that their frozen eggs and embryos are secure.”
The certification validates TMRW’s adherence to a rigid set of global requirements and best practices for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system. This heightened level of security supports TMRW’s mission to safeguard the irreplaceable eggs and embryos used in the IVF process.
