By Pharma Tech Outlook | Thursday, July 16, 2020

With an ISO 27001:2013 certification, BioData now has an international stamp of security best practices.

FREMONT, CA: BioData, a leading electronic lab notebook provider, has obtained the ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Standard. It is considered to be one of the most respectable and widely accepted standards for regulating information security across the world. With the new batch of excellence, BioData can now guarantee exceptional security for its SaaS offerings that help labs run efficiently.

“Our clients have long recognised the stringent standards we set ourselves in delivering technological excellence, information security and data compliance through our market leading Labguru electronic lab notebook (ELN). We are delighted this has been independently validated by our achievement of ISO 27001 in recognition of our best practice,” says Tomer Smolenski, Chief Information Security Officer at BioData.

Labguru from BioData is one of the popular ELNs across the world, and many labs use it for data management. The critical functionalities that Labguru supports include experiment planning and documentation, lab inventory management, cross lab collaborations, and compliance handling. With the new accreditation, BioData clients can use these features without having to go for risk separate risk assessments.

“Information security takes on new significance in our climate of data privacy set by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). All organisations and individuals expect consistently secure technology as well as an ongoing commitment to protecting their and their customers data. As the volume of information handled by laboratories across the globe continues to increase, particularly as both cross-lab collaboration and remote working are increasing, more and more organisations are looking for ISO 27001 as a stamp of international best practice,” adds Tomer Smolenski.

BioData offers SaaS solutions to laboratories, institutions, and life science companies. Its flagship, cloud-based electronic lab notebook (ELN), Labguru, simplifies lab management tasks, simplifies experiments, and helps scientists record workflows, data, and documents.
