ISO 27001 Information Security Certification and GDPR Compliance provide corporations and law firms industry-leading information governance benefits. Paves the way for federal government compliance initiatives.
Washington, D.C. – Modus, a leading provider of eDiscovery business intelligence services, today announced that it has achieved ISO 27001 Certification and Verified GDPR Compliance for all eDiscovery Services.
“The best people and technology must be combined with the best processes for the best outcomes. There are no shortcuts. Many information security issues can be traced back to deficient processes which is why we have invested so heavily in ISO and GDPR compliance efforts. Data Security is simply a risk that must be properly addressed not only in eDiscovery but any industry with confidential or personal information. All of our clients demand we solve this challenge. John and his team have accepted this challenge and embrace it every day. We have already taken steps to leverage these efforts to support our Government digitation and security initiatives for eDiscovery, records management, and information governance. With our Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) efforts, we will be able to save our Federal Government significant costs while maintaining the highest levels of security, scalability, and flexibility,” says Steven Horan, Chairman and CEO of Modus.
“We have been augmenting our information security with a commitment to the right technology resources. This involved building a Security Management System (ISMS) and achieving our ISO 27001 compliance objectives. Amazon has been a great partner and given us access to next-generation tools to fight this security battle. Our clients have benefited greatly from this at no additional cost. Data Security and Privacy is an ‘arms race.’ Very few corporations and even fewer law firms can fight this battle on their own. With respect to GDPR, Modus is now considered a qualified ‘Designated Processor’ of sensitive information. This designation not only protects the privacy for European Union clients but also provides prudent controls for all our clients. The FedRamp is the next security milestone at Modus and we are positioned to achieve this certification. Modus is unique that the ISO 27001 and GDPR certifications apply to all of our eDiscovery services, not just information technology,” says John Crites, CIO of Modus.
