Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners attains ISO27001 certification for its information security management system

 

Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners is the first Italian, full-service law firm to obtain the ISO27001 certificate from DNV GL – Business Assurance in Italy.

The ISO/IEC 27001 certification is an international accreditation that is only awarded to organizations which are able to ensure that information and data is secure from any kind of threat and that guarantee integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of their data.

The certification was approved in December 2016 by DNV GL, one of the leading, global providers of accredited management systems certifications, following the law firm’s implementation of an Information Security Management System. This system allows the firm to adopt a structured and highly disciplined approach to the management of the security of assets entrusted to it by clients, as well as to detect and prevent security breaches.

Antonio Auricchio, Co-Managing Partner of the firm commented: “The size and complexity of the firm’s organizational structure made the certification process extremely delicate and far-reaching. However, it is essential that we can guarantee the security of information and data confidentiality in all the services that we offer clients.”

Giuseppe Velluto, Partner and Head of the firm’s ISO 27001 project added: “The ISO/IEC 27001 certificate proves that the Information Security Management System complies with the international reference standard of data security and that we have done all that is necessary to minimize the risks relating to the data we manage. We are very proud of this as it is an objective certification that the quality of our data management is in line with the quality of the legal assistance we offer clients.

Roberto Davico, Assessment Manager Italy, DNV GL – Business Assurance confirmed: “In the adoption of an Information Security Management System, a law firm is taking on a significant responsibility to clients. The protection of privacy as well as the integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of data are of paramount importance in the legal profession and to obtain an international certification standard further reinforces this security. Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners worked towards this and our audit has established that the firm’s management system is compliant with security standard ISO 27001.”
