Winn Solicitors Secures ISO Accreditation

Winn Solicitors has secured the prestigious ISO27001 accreditation.

Being one of the most internationally accepted and widely recognised information security standards, ISO27001 provides organisations with a framework for establishing processes for implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing and improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The standard encompasses the entire business operation, including its people, processes and technology and assures the robustness and quality of Winns’ risk management processes in relation to information security.

In order to achieve the certification, Winns' compliance to the standard was validated by an independent certification body, the British Assessment Bureau. As part of the assessment, Winns, part of Winn Group, had to meet rigorous assessment criteria and prove the effectiveness of information security controls that affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of company and customer data.

Michael Warmington, Winn Group Associate Director and Project Sponsor, commented; "Over the past 18 months, Winn Group has been working hard to develop and embed policies and procedures within the business to achieve the ISO27001 accreditation. 

"I have no doubt this achievement helps us demonstrate our commitment to protecting the data and information assets of our customers, partners and employees.”

Clint Milnes, Winn Group Chief Information Officer, commented; "This is an excellent achievement that demonstrates that Winn Group is extremely dedicated to protecting information assets and data, while continuously evaluating and improving the way we work."
