Rausch, Sturm, Israel, Enerson & Hornik, LLC (RSIEH) and HALOCK Security Labs (HALOCK) are pleased to announce that RSIEH has achieved the “Gold Standard” of information security by registering its information security management system to ISO 27001: 2005. The certification includes within its scope RSIEH, CAPPS Incorporated and Surefire Data Solutions, all of which are controlled by ISO 27001-compliant processes and controls.

The ISO 27001 certification was awarded to RSIEH after an independent certification body confirmed that the law firm met the strict standards of the Information Security Management System (ISMS). This requires thorough information risk management processes, achievement of demanding information security controls, and continuous improvement to meet ever-evolving information security risks.

“RSIEH chose ISO 27001 as our information security standard because it matches our firm’s culture,” said Rick Olejnik, RSIEH’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). “We take on a lot of responsibility when we handle our client’s personal information. We chose ISO 27001 because of its comprehensiveness and familiarity among our largest clients. We also wanted to choose an implementation partner that was a known industry thought leader and known among our largest clients. HALOCK was an easy choice; they demonstrated their expertise and were headquartered in the mid-west.”

Chris Cronin, Principal Consultant at HALOCK added, “ISO 27001 is not a bureaucratic layer you drop on top of a company that they have to struggle with. It’s a set of management best practices that helps companies identify where their information risks are, and gives them standard, achievable, and measurable approaches to constantly improve their security and their management capabilities. It’s great when companies see that they can measure their progress toward their security goals. It’s eye-opening, and RSIEH got that right away.”
