New York, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
Complete Discovery Source, the leader in eDiscovery, announced today that it has been recertified for the ISO 27001 standard for its information security management system (ISMS) supporting its Electronic Discovery Hosting Services.
Certifications, such as those held by CDS—ISO 27001 and SSAE SOC 1 Type 2, are of particular value to corporations and firms that consistently rely on CDS for sensitive data discovery. These validate that the company utilizes agreed upon, highest standards for data security that are repeatable and sustainable.
In order to receive this recertification, CDS once again demonstrated a systematic and continuous approach to managing sensitive information through a rigorous testing and evaluation process. Additionally, CDS preserves a formal, ongoing program to maintain the certification. The certification was performed by BrightLine, an ANAB accredited Certification Body based in the United States.
ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard for the establishment and certification of an information security management system (ISMS). The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving a documented ISMS within the context of the organization’s overall business risks. It sets forth a risk-based approach that focuses on adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties. In the case of CDS certification, the evaluation is specific to the eDiscovery process.
"The ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our commitment to providing the most secure environment possible for all of our eDiscovery projects,” said Garrett Bendel, Chief Operating Officer, “That offers critical peace of mind for our clients.”
