BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
UL DQS Inc., one of the leading certification bodies for Management
Systems in the world, has received accreditation by the ANSI-ASQ
National Accreditation Board (ANAB) for its Information
Security Management Systems (ISMS) ISO 27001 program.
IT systems, assets and data privacy are critical pieces of any business.
Protecting them against cyber attacks by developing and maintaining a
certified information security management system should be a top
priority for any company.
"Cybercrime is a constant and very real threat, but having a solid
Information Security Management System in place can help prevent and
mitigate the damage," said Ganesh Rao, president and CEO, UL DQS Inc.
"Now that UL DQS has received ISO
27001 accreditation, we can help our customers in another very
important facet of their business operations management."
"Information security is essential to the services Novus Lawprovides
its clients, so ensuring the integrity of our information security
management system and controls is essential to our clients and the
success of our firm," said Lois A. Haubold, vice president, Novus Law.
"UL DQS is the perfect partner for our ISO 27001 registration because
they represent the premier standard of global credibility and trust.
With UL DQS, we feel confident that our security management practices
are comprehensive and highly effective."

Cost of Cyber Crime Study, sponsored by HP and conducted by the�Ponemon
Institute, the occurrence of cyberattacks at U.S. companies has more
than doubled over a three-year period, and the financial impact has seen
similar growth. The cost to U.S. businesses for cybercrime has increased
nearly 40% from 2010 - reaching an average annualized cost of $8.9
million per year according to this latest report.
