"With the dramatic increase in threats to the global data landscape, providing the most secure environment possible for clients’ data is more critical than ever.” said Garrett Bendel, Chief Operating Officer.

Complete Discovery Source, a 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. This recertification includes the company’s New York City, Washington, DC, Chicago offices as well as its London data center and hosting operations.
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 targeted to the ISMS of the eDiscovery process. CDS’ security benchmarks include ISO 27001, SOC 1 Type 2, and a pending FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO). These standards 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.
CDS has repeatedly 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 Schellman, an ANAB accredited Certification Body based in the United States.
"With the dramatic increase in threats to the global data landscape, providing the most secure environment possible for clients’ data is more critical than ever. Certifications such as ISO 27001, SOC 1, and FedRAMP validate that commitment,” said Garrett Bendel, Chief Operating Officer.
