TetraScience proves adherence to information security best practices through an independent audit
BOSTON, Mass., Jan 24. 2023 -- /PRNewswire/ –TetraScience, the Scientific Data Cloud company, proudly announces its ISO/IEC 27001 certification, which builds upon an ongoing corporate commitment to compliance and process formalization for biopharma customers.
TetraScience invests heavily in quality and information security to ensure that the scientific data of our customers is secure, protected and reliable. Our ISO 27001 certification expands our commitment and alignment to other industry standards, such as:
