The Need & Challenges

In 2017, Deep Lens was a startup that had developed a revolutionary new way to match cancer patients with clinical trials. Using their VIPER platform, they were able to quickly and efficiently identify the best candidates for each trial. This was a huge improvement over the current process, which could often take months or even years.

As they prepared to bring their service to market, Deep Lens realized that they needed to be HIPAA compliant. They turned to Gamma Force for consulting and help. Our fractional CISO led and facilitated the development of their security and privacy program. Through Gamma Force’s expertise and guidance, Deep Lens was able to build a robust security program that met all of the requirements of HIPAA, which allowed them to launch their service with confidence.

The Objectives

As a young HealthCare IT startup seeking to become HIPAA compliant in preparation for bringing their service to market, Deep Lens sought Gamma Force as a fractional CISO to lead and facilitate building their security and privacy program.

Where are they now?

Deep Lens matured as a startup receiving later stage funding where their company continued to grow, which drove the need to evolve its security and privacy capabilities strategically to meet the expectations of its customers. 

Deep Lens had always been a tech-first company, and its customers expected nothing less than the best when it came to security and privacy. Their software is a core capability that powers all other insights. And since they’re touching Protected Health Information, it needs the highest level of security and protection. That’s why Gamma Force originally had been brought in to help introduce security and privacy features within their product and business operations. Ever since, Gamma Force has been continuously contributing to the way Deep Lens sees security, being part of everything Deep Lens did – from developing new products to how they operate as a company.

Deep Lens is continuing to grow and evolve its service offering in the marketplace, where Gamma Force services as vCISO are building and evolving their security capabilities to meet business and compliance requirements.
