Select Legal Systems Limited, authors of popular software for law firms, LAWFUSION, are pleased to announce today that they have achieved another successful audit as part of their ongoing ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Certification.
ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally acclaimed framework for information security management. The standard helps ensure the integrity and security of corporate information and provides a robust platform for robust information security management.
Mike Craven, co-owner and Director of Select Legal Systems said, “We are very proud to have passed this with such flying colours. The two-day external audit checks our procedures and policies and we sailed through with zero non-conformities. The auditor commented that he was incredibly impressed with our security set up, and also with the commitment from our senior management team.”
The main reason ISO’s management standards are so highly regarded is due to their stringent, ongoing re-assessment cycle. ISO certified organisations must be independently audited on a continuous basis for a three year period following initial certification to ensure they are still meeting the requirements of the standards.
ISO standards focus on continuous improvement, and this is something that is looked for in Surveillance Audits. Organisations must be reassessed at least annually, during the three year cycle when certification renewal is re-applied for, before they can begin your next 3 year cycle.
This week’s successful surveillance audit is a result of the continued buy-in from Select Legal Systems’ management and staff, to ensure everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet for best practice. It demonstrates that the company ensures its own data and the data the company handles on behalf of clients is adequately protected. The auditors were highly satisfied with Select’s performance and decided the company will not need to be visited again for 12 months.
