Riverview Law awarded ISO/IEC 27001:2013 accreditation

Riverview Law has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management accreditation by BSI. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an internationally recognised best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS). The certification provides independent assurance that robust information security processes are in place to safeguard customer data within a business. The accreditation process considers all business operations, not just technology, providing the business with a complete approach to information security encompassing people, processes and technology. Riverview Law’s Operations Director, Katy Robson, says: “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded ISO/IEC 27001:2013 accreditation. By being awarded ISO/IEC 27001:2013 our global customers have an internationally recognised stamp of approval that the security of their confidential data and information is of the highest priority to Riverview Law.” The awarding of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 accreditation comes at an exciting time for Riverview Law as the company recently won the ‘Innovation in Technology and Data Analytics’ award at The Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Europe Awards 2016, ‘Most innovative client-facing technology’ at The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards 2016 and four of thirteen categories in the Lex 100 2016/17 Trainee Survey. The company continues to recruit heavily in the North West.

November 2016 Market Horizon Scanning

Welcome to the November 2016 edition of the Riverview Law Market Scanning Report. As part of our market and horizon scanning activities we have always collected and circulated internally relevant legal market articles, commentaries, reports and blogs. When we shared this data with a GC he asked why we didn’t routinely share this with him because he’d find it invaluable. It was a good question! So, we now publish this report which, as you’ll see below, contains links to what we think are the most interesting and relevant legal market commentaries of October 2016 and previous months. Best wishes,
