Ronan Daly Jermyn has been awarded ISO 27001 Certification for its offices in Cork, Dublin and Galway. They are the only Irish law firm to have achieved certification across multiple office locations with a scope covering all client and firm data.
ISO 27001 is the most widely recognised international standard for information security. The standard specifies the requirements for implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System within the context of the organisation. Ronan Daly Jermyn’s security management system includes policies around access control, risk management, physical security, business continuity, training & awareness; all underpinned by a comprehensive set of technical procedures and controls.
Commenting on the certification, Richard Martin, Managing Partner said “Security is always a top priority for us at Ronan Daly Jermyn. Securing ISO 27001 certification is a reinforcement of our commitment to managing risks to data and information security.” He continued, “At a time when compliance with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is on the minds of many businesses, clients need assurance that their legal advisors too are meeting the highest quality standards in information security.”
Michael Brophy, CEO of Certification Europe & industry leading expert in ISO 27001 added: “I wish to congratulate Ronan Daly Jermyn on achieving ISO 27001 certification across their entire organisation. Multi-site certification allows the firm to display consistency in their approach to information security across all its sites in Cork, Dublin and Galway”. He continued, “With increased regulation across many industries, increased vigilance around data protection and cyber security featuring prominently on the Board Room agenda, strong information security management systems are more important than ever. More and more, we are seeing many organisations limiting their vendor selection to those organisations that have achieved ISO27001 certification.”
