Suprema BioStar 2 acquires data protection certifications

Issue 2 2021 Editor's Choice

Suprema recently announced that its BioStar 2 platform has acquired ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 certifications, internationally recognised privacy information and security standards.

ISO 27001 ensures that appropriate measures are in place for data protection and management of information. ISO 27701, first established in August last year, is granted to systems compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other similar legislations like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Both certifications are published and managed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Suprema BioStar 2 is a web-based open platform with access control, time and attendance and visitor management features. Suprema offers an API and SDK that enables BioStar 2’s easy integration with third-party systems.

Suprema BioStar 2 met all of the 26 data protection management standards, 114 data protection control and 18 personal information management requirements for the ISO certifications.

“Suprema has been striving to strengthen the security level of not just our products and solutions but the company as a whole. We’ve expanded our security team and are running a data protection system in line with global security compliance standards, providing safe and secure solutions. I’m glad to have the ISO 27001 and 27701 certifications to validate our efforts,” said Young S. Moon, the CEO of Suprema Inc.
