Dedicated to Your Data Security and Privacy

Global has raised the bar in data security and privacy in order to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our clients’ critical information. Global has created multiple, redundant layers of security infrastructure and related processes – layered over a foundation that can only come from operating within the infrastructure of an eDiscovery industry leader. However, we know that security doesn’t end with hardware and software, but instead most focus on the “weakest link”: people. Hence, we maintain policies, standards and procedures for information security and data protection for all Global personnel and which includes training, testing and continually monitoring compliance.

Global’s security and compliance initiatives and certifications include:

ISO 27000
