Enhanced security and reliability through adherence to globally recognized information security standards
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (PRWEB) OCTOBER 27, 2022 - Deep Bio, a pioneer in medical AI for digital pathology and cancer diagnostics support software, announced that it has acquired ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the international information security management system standards.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and improving an information security management system and provides a risk management process so that organizations can accordingly keep their information safe. As the most widely-recognized certification for information security management, it strictly evaluates 144 criteria in 14 categories such as information security policy, security processes, security controls and services. By obtaining the certification, Deep Bio has demonstrated its commitment to protecting data through systematic management for information security.
“As we handle a myriad of medical data which require a more secure approach, we are very aware of the importance of information security above all else, and make every effort to build a thorough security management system,” said Sun Woo Kim, the CEO of Deep Bio. “Achieving the certification proves our robust data security management systems. We will keep renewing this certification so that our partners and customers can use our AI-based cancer diagnostic support software with confidence,” he mentioned.
Deep Bio, which initiated AI-based pathology image analysis and cancer diagnosis research in Korea, is leading the digital transformation in pathology with Korea’s first approved AI-based cancer diagnostic support software DeepDx®-Prostate and AI-based prostate cancer severity-grading software DeepDx®-Prostate Pro. More importantly, the company plans to execute purchase agreements with five Korean hospitals for DeepDx®-Prostate Pro, through the Public Procurement Marketplace program run by the Korean Public Procurement Service (PPS).
Deep Bio also continues to build its global presence through overseas partnerships with digital pathology platform providers in the US, Europe, and India, as well as conduct research cooperation with Stanford Medical School, Harvard Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and other top research institutions in the US. The company also has been presenting its novel research results in prestigious science and technology journals including the Cancers Journal, npj Digital Medicine, among others.
