Successful completion of recent audit demonstrates MolecuLight’s commitment to data security
TORONTO, ON – (April 19, 2023) MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging that locates and detects elevated bacterial loads in and around wounds, announced that it is in compliance with SOC 2® Type I, having successfully completed its audit in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for Systems and Organization Controls (SOC). This enables MolecuLight to better serve the needs of its customers globally by ensuring the Company’s data management practices and organizational controls meet the highest international standards.
MolecuLight’s compliance with SOC 2® standards validates that the company has implemented controls relevant to the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems used to process users’ data as well as the confidentiality and privacy of the information.
“Obtaining the SOC 2 certification reinforces MolecuLight’s ongoing commitment to the security, availability, and processing integrity of MolecuLight’s point-of-care fluorescence imaging technologies,” said Anil Amlani, MolecuLight’s CEO. “Our certification demonstrates our commitment and our business processes to maintain the highest level of security, privacy, availability, and confidentiality for our customers.”
As part of the process for achieving SOC 2® compliance, MolecuLight worked with PwC, an accredited auditor to review the design and operating effectiveness of the controls on its core MolecuLightDX® imaging platform against the applicable Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, and Confidentiality. These included the operating software of the imaging platform, how the devices manage customer and user data, as well as security policies and procedures. Over the course of the audit, MolecuLight demonstrated the ability to safely manage customers’ data and use of the platform, as well as its security controls and processes.
The MolecuLight i:X® and DX are the only imaging devices for the real-time detection of elevated bacterial burden in wounds that are FDA cleared and CE and Health Canada approved. With clinical evidence including over 75 peer-reviewed publications involving 1,600 patients, they are used by leading wound care facilities globally.
