Topcon Achieves ISO 27001 Certification of its Harmony® RS Clinical Data Management System
Company Successfully Completes Rigorous Certification Process, Confirming Its Commitment to the Highest Level of Data Security and Integrity
OAKLAND, NJ JANUARY, 2023 – Topcon Healthcare, a leading provider of medical devices and software solutions for the global eye care community, is pleased to announce that it has obtained ISO 27001 certification of its Harmony® RS Clinical Data Management System. The certification was performed by Schellman & Company, LLC, an ANAB and UKAS accredited Certification Body based in the United States. This certification is in addition to the previous ISO certification that Topcon achieved for its Harmony US system.
ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard for the establishment and certification of an information security management system (ISMS). The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented ISMS within the context of the organization’s overall business risks. It sets forth a risk-based approach that focuses on adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.
By achieving ISO 27001 certification for Harmony® RS, Topcon has demonstrated that its newest robust data management application meets the most stringent requirements for data integrity.
Harmony® RS is a next-generation, browser-based data management system that allows eye care providers to connect all of their diagnostic instruments, regardless of manufacturer, into one secure, web-based platform.
“We are very pleased to achieve ISO 27001 certification of our Harmony® RS Clinical Data Management System. This recognition demonstrates our continuing commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of information security available today. It certifies our operational excellence and demonstrates that we run the proper controls for confidentiality, integrity and availability for our Harmony® SaaS application. I would like to congratulate the team that made this happen,” stated Mr. Akifumi Baba, President of Topcon Healthcare.
