Certification Europe Certify ByrneWallace to ISO 27001

Certification Europe is proud to announce law firm ByrneWallace have been awarded ISO 27001 Information Security standard.

Certification Europe yesterday awarded ByrneWallace with ISO 27001 Information Security standard.  ISO 27001 is the international best practice standard for information security. The standard is especially suitable where the protection of information is critical which makes ISO 27001 an obvious choice for companies in banking, It, health and in recent times legal firms. The standard provides organisations with the best practices to address confidentiality, integrity and availability of information on customers, continual asset protection, IT governance and legal compliance.

Commenting on the certification, Catherine Guy, Managing Partner at ByrneWallace said, “Information security and cybersecurity is a primary risk in any business. The incidence of cyber-attacks in Ireland has almost doubled since 2012 and having advised clients extensively on cybercrime and related issues including data protection we understand the potentially serious impact a security breach can have on a business and the growing need for every business, including professional advisers, to have in place adequate control mechanisms to mitigate such threats and safeguard customer information.  Clients expect excellence from their advisers and they expect that their data is secure.

“Having completed our research, we believed that obtaining ISO certification was the best way to ensure international best practice in data security management. Then following a comprehensive risk assessment process, we began significantly enhancing all our data management processes and controls to the point where we passed the rigorous ISO 27001 test.

By Implementing ISO 27001 it delivers an independently verified Information Security Management System which provides our clients with an extra level of assurance that ByrneWallace has a comprehensive and forward thinking approach to data security. It demonstrates the stability of our systems to both existing and future clients and provides peace of mind that proprietary data is and will always be fully confidential.”

Rob Lyons Sales Manager at Certification Europe attended the presentation ceremony said “With the increasing number of cybersecurity risks and data breaches, ISO 27001 is the international standard which is recognised globally for managing these risks to the security of information you hold. With Byrne Wallace achieving Certification to ISO 27001 it means ByrneWallace can demonstrate to their clients and other stakeholders that they are managing the security of information in their possession. ISO 27001:2013 (the current version of ISO 27001) provides a set of standardised requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). The standard adopts a process approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving your ISMS”.
