HILL WALLACK LLP RECEIVES ISO 27001:2013 CERTIFICATION
Hill Wallack LLP, a leading regional law firm in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has announced the firm has achieved ISO 27001:2013 Certification, the most widely-adopted information security standard in the world and the highest level of security-related accreditation a business can achieve. The firm achieved this certification for all of its offices and data centers.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized security standard that specifies the establishment, maintenance, and continuous improvement of an organization’s information security management system. These stringent standards exist to ensure that formal security and risk management controls are in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive company, client, and personal information. The rigorous certification process requires annual audits to ensure that the firm is using state of the art practices and procedures to secure its client’s sensitive data and to keep pace with the ever changing cybersecurity landscape.
By obtaining the ISO 27001 certification, Hill Wallack has confirmed its commitment to provide its clients with global best practices for information security management and ensures that proper policies and procedures are in place to secure valuable client data. Many of the firm’s clients are in regulated industries which mandate that they use professional service firms that are capable of securing their confidential data. By achieving this certification, Hill Wallack has joined an elite group of firms that are positioned to satisfy the needs of those clients.
Hill Wallack’s ISO certification was achieved after a rigorous three-year process of risk assessment, evaluation and process implementation, which included both an internal and independent audit process. Hill Wallack is one of only a very small number of firms in our area to achieve certification.
