Suprema biometric access control platform achieves data security and privacy certifications
Suprema has announced certification to the ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 data security standards for its BioStar 2 biometric access control platform.
ISO/IEC 27001 is a standard for data protection and management of information, while ISO/IEC 27701 is a new standard for compliance to principles behind data privacy regulations like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
Suprema BioStar 2 provides access control, time and attendance and visitor management capabilities from a web-based open platform. The company offers API and SDKs that it says in the announcement enable easy integration with third parties.
To achieve the certifications, Suprema BioStar 2 met 26 data protection management criteria, along with 114 requirements for data protection control and 18 more for personal information management.
“Suprema has been striving to strengthen the security level of not just our products and solutions but the company as a whole,” comments Young S. Moon, the CEO of Suprema Inc. in the announcement. “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 validate our efforts.”
Suprema launched a new version of BioStar 2 with enhanced encryption and security capabilities earlier this year, paving the way for the new certifications.
