DETROIT, Mich. (PRWEB) August 25, 2016
Dickinson Wright PLLC is pleased to announce that the firm has received ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, becoming the first law firm headquartered in Michigan to achieve certification.
“ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is an important step in ensuring that Dickinson Wright’s information technology services are secure and efficient for our clients,” said Michael Kolb, Chief Information & Security Officer. “This is an important next step in Dickinson Wright’s evolution to provide high-quality service and technology to our clients. ISO certification allows us to continually improve the firm’s information security management system and process while streamlining our efforts to provide additional security for our clients when handling highly-sensitive matters concerning their business.”
Dickinson Wright’s Information Technology department worked for several years to achieve ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for the firm’s Document Management Service, Email Service, Remote Access Service, Client-Share Service and Mobile Device Management. Certification is maintained through periodical surveillance audits.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards have been prepared to provide requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system. The information security management system is designed to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed. According to the International Standards Organization, the organization that developed the standards, in 2014 only 664 certificates were issued in the United States for ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
