Irwin Fritchie Increases Data Security by Achieving ISO 27001 Management Systems Certification


NEW ORLEANS, LA – Irwin Fritchie Urquhart Moore & Daniels LLC is proud to announce that the firm’s already stringent data management system has now become even more secure through the achievement of the ISO 27001 Management Systems Certification through the BSI Group certification program.

“In today's digital landscape,” stated Irwin Fritchie President, Timothy F. Daniels, “data security must be a principal concern when working with sensitive information, especially that of our clients. Irwin Fritchie’s achievement of this certification has provided our attorneys and staff with the framework necessary to manage and protect sensitive information on all levels. It also stands as a clear demonstration of our commitment, not only to data security, but to the peace of mind of the firm’s current and future clients.”

Considered the world’s best-known standard for information security management systems (ISMS), ISO 27001 was developed by the International Standard Organization (ISO) as a means by which organizations can continuously and effectively protect their data. This standard defines the requirements that must be met for an organization to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve its information security management system.

Rather than focusing on the protection of specific types of data – i.e., HIPAA’s protection of personal health information – ISO 27001 is the international standard for protecting nearly all types of business data in all forms.

Key Benefits of ISO 27001 Certification for Irwin Fritchie Clients:

Enhanced Data Security:
ISO 27001 certification ensures that our organization follows best practices in information security management. By implementing stringent controls and risk management processes, we mitigate the risk of data breaches, unauthorized access, and cyber-attacks. Clients can trust that their sensitive information is safeguarded according to internationally recognized standards.

Many industries are subject to stringent regulatory requirements governing data protection and privacy. ISO 27001 certification further aligns Irwin Fritchie with these regulations, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA.
