WeirFoulds LLP receives SOC 2 certification for the second consecutive year

WeirFoulds is proud to announce that the firm’s digital security maintenance and data confidentiality processes have been fully certified as SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls 2) compliant for the second consecutive year, meeting the threshold of the Trust Services Criteria in security and data confidentiality. The certification was confirmed by an independent service auditor after an intensive, yearslong process that thoroughly tested the firm’s service commitments and system requirements. WeirFoulds first achieved SOC 2 compliance in 2023.

This level of security compliance provides WeirFoulds’ clients with the assurance that their most sensitive data is kept secure, protected and strictly confidential through the use of state-of-the-art technology and internal processes that operate at an internationally recognized standard.

Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 is recognized as the highest possible data security compliance standard for service organizations. Achieving full SOC 2 compliance requires a significant investment into building and integrating the required internal control systems, in addition to an extensive external audit to ensure full compliance is reached.

As businesses and individuals rely more on the digital exchange of critical and highly sensitive information, this increases concerns and risks surrounding data security. Large-scale security breaches have the potential to cause major disruption to clients’ needs, as well as significantly damage the reputation of the compromised organization, making high standards for digital security a necessity.

Achieving SOC 2 compliance is a crucial component of WeirFoulds’ commitment to providing clients with an unparalleled level of service, one that extends beyond the legal services they receive to the safeguarding of their data. By maintaining this internationally recognized benchmark for digital security excellence, WeirFoulds reinforces its reputation as a trusted legal partner and a law firm that is dedicated to upholding the highest ethical and professional standards.
