NetDocuments will complete an ISO audit becoming the first legal DMS technology provider to achieve compliance of the ISO 27018 cloud data protection standards, extending the company’s 27001 certification across the NetDocuments cloud platform and global application.

NetDocuments, the leading cloud-based document and email management (DMS) platform for law firms and corporate legal departments, today announced it has expanded the scope of its ISO 27001 certification to include the new standards identified in ISO 27018: Security Techniques – Code of Practice for Protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Public Clouds acting as PII Processors. Upon completion of the audit in the fourth quarter of 2017, NetDocuments will be the first legal DMS service provider to be independently validated as having extended the ISO 27001 certification by implementing the ISO 27018 standards.

David Hansen, Director of Compliance for NetDocuments commented, “ISO 27018 identifies best practices for protecting PII in the cloud. Implementing those standards and having independent auditors review, analyze, and attest to the adherence of these standards provides our customers and their clients an additional level of assurance and validation regarding the security architecture NetDocuments continues to expand on in order to protect customer data.”

In addition to its expanded annual ISO 27001 certification audits, NetDocuments undergoes annual SOC 2 Type 2 audits for the security and availability of its global cloud platform. The updated ISO 27001 certification, with its expanded ISO 27018 compliance attestation, updated HIPAA compliance attestation, and the latest SOC 2 audit report, will all be available under NDA for customers and prospects to review in coming weeks.
