Another Law Firm Trumpets ISO 27001 Security Certification

We've covered law firm adoption of the ISO 27001 information security standard over the years. Many firms see this as a quick path to addressing client concerns about managing sensitive data, and several view it as a competitive differentiator, including: "Aberdein Considine achieves ISO 27001:2013 certification"--
multiple times
  • "Aberdein Considine (18 offices and 400 staff), has had its commitment to high standards of information security across all of its practice areas and locations recognised with a national accreditation."
  • "The firm has achieved the prestigious ISO 27001:2013 certification which acknowledges the implementation of robust procedures and processes relating to information security management after it recently underwent a comprehensive independent audit of its systems."
  • "The certification standards set out a strict framework for managing the security of assets, including financial information, intellectual property, employee details and information entrusted to an organisation by third parties."
  • "Jacqueline Law, a corporate partner at Aberdein Considine, has welcomed the certification and believes it is reward to the high importance placed by the firm on the security of its own and its clients’ information: 'To achieve ISO 27001:2013 certification – one of only a handful of law firms in Scotland to do so – is incredibly pleasing and recognises our commitment to high standards of information asset security.'"
