Tampa, Fla. – October 27, 2016 – Carlton Fields is pleased to announce that the firm has earned ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certification, the most widely adopted information security standard in the world and the highest level of security-related accreditation a business can achieve. The firm achieved this certification for all of its offices and data centers throughout the United States.
ISO 27001 is an internationally accepted information security standard that specifies the establishment, maintenance and improvement of an organization’s information security management system. These standards ensure that formal security and risk management controls are in place to protect sensitive company, client, and employee information. The certification and audit process is rigorous, with stringent requirements that focus on preserving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information across all technologies that store, process and transmit client information. An annual audit is required to maintain ISO certification and show that the firm is keeping pace with changes to security threats, vulnerabilities and business impacts.
“Clients, particularly in the financial services sector, are increasingly concerned about information security. They entrust us with highly sensitive information. ISO 27001 certification is an important part of our firm’s overall security strategy, and demonstrates our commitment to investing in the technology and training needed to protect our clients’ confidential business matters,” said Carlton Fields President and CEO Gary Sasso.
“Certification demonstrates and underscores to our clients the priority we place on the security and management of their data,” he added.
