Meditrial, leading CRO and clinical software provider, awarded ISO 27001 Certification for Information Security
28 October 2019
Meditrial, a leading CRO with unique focus on education and provider of advanced cloud software solutions for clinical trials, has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001 certification after meeting the stringent requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) as put forward by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Meditrial has been awarded the certification for operating an ISMS which complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 within the scope of Meditrial’s Clinical Trials Services, Clinical Software Solutions, and Medical Education business lines, systems and processes.
An ISMS is an overarching framework through which an organization manages and protects information assets so they remain safe and secure. From an operational perspective, one of the biggest benefits is that ISO/IEC 27001 focuses on a management system that influences all areas of an organization and is therefore very effective. It includes the following:
· review all information systems, policies, procedures, processes and controls
· recognise risks to information and establish measures to reduce or eliminate them
· identify all internal and external stakeholders relevant to the ISMS as well as communicate the ISMS policy to the entire workforce and ensure adherence
· secure the commitment of top management
· establish a framework to manage legal and regulatory requirements.
“Meditrial has always distinguished itself as a partner with stringent data privacy and security controls. Our new ISO certification is testament to this commitment”, said Daniele Zago, Director of R&D and Quality at Meditrial.
Speaking on the achievement, Dr. Monica Tocchi, Founder and Medical Director of Meditrial said, “Our partners trust us with their most valuable asset — their data. This certification encompasses our clinical services and unique software solutions, and reinforces our pledge to ensure these assets are handled with the utmost care.”
Mr. Andrea Letizia, Executive Manager of the Clinical Software department in Meditrial, added “Meditrial aims at the highest security standards as part of their mission and proposition. Meditrial has again proven to set the bar when it comes to quality and security for clinical trials and EDC systems.”
