ansarada’s three main offices - Sydney, London and now Chicago - all certified to ISO 27001.



The Chicago team ... achieved certification immediately without a single non-conformance or improvement request.

Keeping clients safe and confident is taken very seriously at ansarada. It’s not just PR or to show the M&A community a commitment to security but a way to genuinely reduce risk for everyone involved in M&A due diligence. After first being awarded accreditation in 2009, they have taken the certification beyond the industry benchmarks and now have individually accredited the people and processes in their Sydney, London and Chicago offices. 

ISO 27001 is the International Standards Organization accreditation standard for Information Security Management Systems. It represents the highest level of information security and is awarded to companies that provide a holistic, risk-based approach to protecting critical and sensitive information.

“The Chicago team, led by Brian Hall and supported by Richard Thomas from our London Office, achieved certification immediately without a single non-conformance or improvement request – quite an exceptional achievement in the exacting world of ISO 27001 certification,” said ansarada’s Head of Security & Compliance, John Finneran.

The successful US audit took place on September 6th, with the US auditor particularly impressed with ansarada’s grasp of US Law, including US-EU Safe Harbor Certification.

For ansarada’s clients, it provides confirmation and confidence that their information, and more importantly their actual M&A deal, is in safe hands.
