Wiley Rein Awarded ISO 27001 Certification for Information Security Management

Firm Meets Rigorous International Standards for Protecting Client Data

May 7, 2018

Washington, DC — Wiley Rein LLP is proud to announce it has been 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).

“We’re proud to achieve the ISO 27001 certification, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the highest standards of information security,” said Jim Goehrig, Chief Information Officer at Wiley Rein. “It is paramount that we protect the data of the firm, as well as the data entrusted to us by our clients.”

ISO/IEC 27001 is an information security management standard, published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) under the joint ISO and IEC subcommittee. ISO/IEC 27001 specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under management control.
