Leading Law firm improves ISO27001 Policy Management

September 10, 2016

William Fry LLP has chosen to incorporate the MetaCompliance policy management suite and eLearning system into their internal compliance awareness program. This will ultimately improve user awareness and educate staff on how to carry out their IT Security and compliance responsibilities.

Operating an international practice, William Fry LLP has over 450 staff and regularly acts in cases involving other jurisdictions. Continued investment in its people, technology and research maintain the firm’s ability to provide practical and prompt solutions, while devoting exacting attention to detail.

William Fry required a solution that would improve risk awareness and engagement across the organisation, as well as enforcing responsibility in compliance in order to meet industry standards.

Michael Devitt, IT Manager at William Fry, explains his reason for choosing Metacompliance. “We chose MetaCompliance as it is very easy to use and helps us drive security awareness throughout the firm and we have been able to fulfil ISO 27001 requirements with the help of the software.”

The Metacompliance solution allows William Fry to manage the complete lifecycle of their compliance policies and procedures and enables them to target users in accordance with their specific job role, all the while providing clear and demonstrable evidence.

“We are delighted to be working with Metacompliance, their policy management software has a fresh and modern look and feel.” Michael went on to add. “The software guarantees accountability and ensures staff participate in our compliance activities, and the real value is that that the entire process is recorded and auditable.”

Judith O’Brien, Director at Metacompliance, has said: “We are pleased that yet another global law firm has recognised our unique ability to bring expertise and technology to bear on the challenging area of changing staff awareness of IT Security and Compliance. Law firms are at the front line of compliance demands and are being held to very high levels of accountability when it comes to actually implementing best practice.”
