Information Security Management ISO 27001
ISO 27001 is globally recognised as the standard against which organisations can be certified to align with global standards of best practice information security management. About a decade ago, Parke Lawyers partnered with leading information security experts Blueprint, to implement an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
In 2010, Parke Lawyers Melbourne became the first Australian law firm certified to the ISO 27001 standard. The system allows us to manage and minimise the threats to information assets necessary to the operation of its key business processes and enables the prompt identification, reporting, recording and response to all information security threats and incidents.
Health & Safety OHSAS 18001:2007
Health & Safety OHSAS 18001: 2007 is the benchmark certification to assess the Occupational Health & Safety Management systems for organisations. Our certification shows our system has been independently assessed by experts and demonstrates our commitment to workplace safety.
Parke Lawyers takes its Occupational Health and Safety responsibilities seriously. Our management and staff are committed to maintaining a working environment that is safe and productive. We empower our employees to take care of the health and safety of themselves and others.
