February 6, 2019 (Louisville, KY) – Frost Brown Todd (FBT) is one of a select number of law firms awarded the highly respected ISO/IEC 27001 certification. ISO/IEC 27001 provides a framework for managing and improving information security within an organization; including continually assessing and treating information security risks to the organization.
After a year-long review of the firm’s information security processes and procedures, FBT completed three external audits to be granted the certification which is valid until December 2021. As a requirement to maintain the certificate, FBT will undergo additional annual audits to ensure continued conformity to the standard.
“Our clients regularly audit our information security program and this additional designation shows our priority to their needs,” said FBT Chief Information Officer Michael Severini. “We are committed to preserving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all information services and applications as well as any sensitive information stored, transmitted or prepared within FBT’s information processing facilities.”
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. The latest revision of the standard was published in 2013.
