Marketing Stockport member and Hazel Grove based O’Neill Patient has gained the prestigious ISO27001 Information Security standard becoming only one of the few UK law firms to be accredited following the company’s attention to process to ensure that its client data is handled securely.
Secure data handling is a major concern among the legal profession and O’Neill Patient has made this a key priority and made major investment in its processes and procedures through improved training and the introduction of new software and systems for their 210 strong workforce.
Managing partner Sue Brown (left) said:
“ISO27001 is a very difficult standard to attain for any business, especially an organisation operating in the legal sector, so I am delighted that we have met the strict criteria.”
