Bethesda, MD (PressExposure) May 05, 2009 -- ISO is the world's largest developer and creator of standards that detail universal requirements for products, processes, services, systems, and materials. ISO 27001 is the latest international standard developed exclusively for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), requiring companies to employ a methodical approach to managing sensitive information and ensuring data security.
According to a report issued by ACNielsen, there are less than 6,000 companies world-wide certified for ISO 27001. Legal Advantage is one of the select number of firms in this space to bag the critical, leading-edge international standards certification by passing all three stages in the certification process.
ISO 27001 comprises 10 exhaustive control categories including: information security policy, security organization, personnel security, access controls, physical security, asset classification controls, continuity planning, system deployment, communication management, and compliance.
Legal Advantage has been relentlessly working to accomplish the ISO 27001 for over 22 months now, and in this quest has established a team of core employees to ensure the pinnacles of information security are developed and maintained to better manage the certification.
Legal Advantage was evaluated for the efficacy in execution of information security procedures and policies to guard customersâ and organizationâs confidential information and intellectual property. Periodic internal audits and surveillance audits by ISO will ensure that the efficiency is continuous within the organization.
This accreditation is a giant stride for Legal Advantage toward achieving operational excellence and maximizing customer trust and confidence in the Company's IT infrastructure and security capabilities. The ISO 27001 certification will arm Legal Advantage with enhanced might in global markets where ISO standards guarantee uniformity across national and regional boundaries.
