JLL Receives Prestigious Data Security Certifications

SOC2 Report and ISO 27001 Designations Validate JLL's Information Management Systems and Ability to Ensure Data Quality and Security

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 9, 2016) - JLL (NYSE: JLL) has received a pair of globally recognized designations that demonstrate its ability to maintain and execute controls of its internal and external technology platforms. These third-party certifications validate JLL's proven ability to manage and maintain data security for itself and its clients.

JLL's Corporate Solutions applications received the prestigious Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2, type II report and the global ISO 27001 certification for information security. Both certifications require extensive process and system documentation and data center physical inspection. They also require organizations to demonstrate ongoing procedures for risk management and information governance.

"Data is the new corporate real estate frontier, requiring uncompromising governance and diligence as we use increasingly innovative and data-enabled systems for our clients and our company," said Edward Wagoner, JLL's Global Chief Information Officer, Corporate Solutions. "These two certifications provide validation of the importance we place on quality and security of JLL and client data."

The SOC2 audit, conducted by independent accounting and auditing firm KPMG, demonstrates JLL's ability to control the security, confidentiality, processing integrity, availability and privacy of its financial information according to widely accepted standards. Type II reports assess policies and procedures and operating effectiveness over a period of time, enabling clients to assess outsourcing risks.

JLL's ISO 27001 audit also was conducted by KPMG Audit Plc. An internationally accepted independent information security standard, the ISO 27001 certification confirms that JLL is committed to managing information security risks and ensuring the ongoing confidentiality, integrity and availability of its information technology assets. To demonstrate this commitment, JLL has established an information security management system (ISMS) aligned with ISO/IEC 27001:2013, and its major Corporate Solutions client-facing business applications are now certified to ISO 27001 for Information Security Management.
