TMRW Life Sciences, known for its automated, software-guided specimen management platform for in vitro fertilization (IVF) has achieved its SOC2 certification after a rigorous independent audit of its information security management systems. SOC2 is a voluntary compliance standard for organizations, developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), which specifies how organizations should manage customer data. The standard is based on the following Trust Services Criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
The certification validates TMRW’s adherence to a rigid set of security 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.
Threats to security information are becoming more common and advanced each day. In order to maximize its quality and security, the company participated in a technology risk assessment and SOC2 readiness program to prepare for the audit. The TMRW platform was put through a rigorous process to ensure maximum security across all aspects of the company. Achieving this certification is one of many continued accreditations the company has planned. The company has already received the ISO/IEC 27001 Certification previously this year.
“Our secure platform provides fertility clinics with a critical digital chain of custody for patient specimens that will be used in in vitro fertilization (IVF), automating clinic operations that for decades have been manual and analog,” said Amit Gupta, Chief Information Officer at TMRW. “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.”
