Copyright Clearance Center Joins Massachusetts Biotechnology Council

Clearance Center, Inc.
 (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright,
accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has joined the Massachusetts
Biotechnology Council
(MassBio®), a not-for-profit organization that
represents and provides services and support for the world’s leading
life sciences supercluster.

“Our membership in MassBio offers CCC the opportunity to further
participate in the growth of the life science ecosystem,” said Jill
Shuman, Director, Product Engagement, CCC. “We look forward to sharing
our expertise in creating copyright compliant content workflow solutions
for organizations within this network of innovative companies.”

“MassBio is committed to serving the needs of the life sciences startup
community in Massachusetts and we’re thrilled CCC has joined our
membership to help these entrepreneurs address the early challenges of
content acquisition, curation, and copyright compliance,” said Robert K.
Coughlin, President and CEO, MassBio.

MassBio helps advance Massachusetts’ leadership in life sciences to grow
the industry, add value to the healthcare system and improve patient
lives. Representing more than 1,100 biotechnology companies, academic
institutions, disease foundations and other organizations involved in

CCC recently launched its RightFind®
suite for emerging life science companies
. This content workflow
solution offers fast, easy access to a full range of published content –
anytime, anywhere – providing a more efficient research process and
competitive advantage. RightFind
gives life science companies a secure gateway to discover STM content
from journals, books, and databases, with immediate access to
subscriptions and an easy way to purchase unsubscribed content.
Employees are able to collaborate with team members and view company
rights for sharing content, simplifying copyright compliance.

CCC also just achieved certification to the ISO
27001 Information Security Management System
(ISMS), an
internationally acknowledged management system standard for information
security. ISO 27001 provides a framework for establishing implementing,
operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an
organization’s information security management system. A rigorous and
thorough audit of a company’s information security management systems
and controls must be conducted by third party auditors in order for
certification to be granted. CCC received certification with “No
Non-Conformities,” the highest standard.

Additionally, CCC completed its SOC 2 (Type 2) audits with “No
Exceptions” (the highest standard), for the second year in a row. CCC
qualified in the initial group of applicants for the EU/US Privacy
Shield and for recertification and has obtained Swiss/US Privacy
certification. CCC online privacy notices are reviewed and certified
annually by TRUSTe/TRUSARC.

“As CCC works with some of the most innovative life sciences companies
in the world, we view compliance with security and privacy standards as
a strategic asset,” said Babis Marmanis, Executive Vice President and
CTO, CCC. “This certification reflects our organization’s long-term
commitment to safeguarding our digital assets and protecting our users
through rigorous security and privacy compliance initiatives.”
