Chambliss Law achieves global cybersecurity standard




Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel has achieved the international cybersecurity standards for law firms set by Meritas, a global alliance of independent business law firms.

“It’s important to our firm to continuously implement best practices, especially when it comes to the protection of our clients’ information,” says Tony Young, executive director for Chambliss. “Meeting a global quality benchmark helps us attain the level of cybersecurity needed to protect the interests of our clients.”

The standards define 10 cybersecurity requirements that the 182 independent law firms that are Meritas members and future new members of the organization are expected to meet.

As part of the process, Chambliss completed an assessment of cybersecurity best practices and readiness, implemented cybersecurity enhancements in key areas to respond to ever-changing online risks and completed a compliance review against the Meritas standards.

Chambliss has information security, risk assessments, technical and physical safeguards, employee training, third-party risk management and business continuity plans in place along with a breach response process.

As part of its Meritas membership renewal, Chambliss will regularly complete a cybersecurity assessment to maintain its level of security for safeguarding information.
