CERTIFICATION:  

Wiley Rein was awarded ISO 27001 certification as of May 1, 2018 – one of a select number of law firms to achieve this highly respected certification for information security management. The certification reflects the firm’s compliance with rigorous international standards and best practices, and its robust approach to protecting client data. Wiley Rein was granted the certification after an independent, comprehensive, year-long review of the firm’s information security and risk management processes and procedures. The review process involved a multipronged audit by the British Standards Institute (BSI). In addition, the firm also complies with requirements in several NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) guidelines.
