Freeths’ continued IT security confirmed with successful ISO 27001 audit

Having first achieved ISO 27001 certification a year ago, national law practice Freeths has just successfully completed its annual audit, confirming continued accreditation.

ISO 27001 is the best known and widely used ISO standard for information security within an organisation. It is the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system, managing information risks, such as cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft.

Richard Hodkinson, incoming Chief Technology Officer at Freeths, commented:

“Having ISO 27001 certification in place demonstrates that Freeths have defined and put in place best-practice information security processes.

For our clients it demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and good information security practices to protect the business against threats such as cyber-attacks and to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. We believe that all of our clients should have this reassurance when they work with us.”
