Our Strategic Commitment to Data Security
McConnell Jones takes threats to the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of our client’s information seriously. As such we have implemented a rigorous assessment and compliance program that includes ISO 27001:2013 certification, completion of the TruSight assessment, internal and external audits, and independent penetration testing.
ISO 27001 Certified (Information Security Management System)
The international acceptance and protection of our client’s information is the key reason why certification to this standard is at the forefront of McConnell Jones’s approach to information security. McConnell Jones’s achievement of ISO/IEC 27001 certification points to its commitment to making good on client promises from a business, security compliance standpoint. Currently, the Firm is audited once a year for ISO/IEC 27001 compliance by a third-party accredited certification body, providing independent validation that security controls are in place and operating effectively.
The scope of the ISMS includes the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information systems supporting the following:
- Audit and Assurance Services
- Tax and Accounting Services
- Consulting Services
The scope is inclusive of all McConnell Jones employees, contractors, sub-contractors and their respective facilities supporting the services above.

TruSight is a third-party risk-assessment utility created by leading US banks for the collective benefit of financial institutions, their suppliers, partners, and other third parties. TruSight simplifies assessments by executing best-practice, standardized evaluations once and making them available to many organizations, enabling financial institutions to gain greater visibility into potential risks and manage third-party relationships more efficiently and effectively.
The foundation of TruSight’s methodology is the robust, standardized Best Practices Questionnaire (BPQ) created by TruSight’s founding banks and updated in partnership with their customers and industry experts. Its 27 diversified control domains are designed to meet the industry’s evaluation needs across the categories of information and cyber security, privacy, business resiliency, and other operational risk domains.
For McConnell & Jones, TruSight conducted a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of the Firm’s information security and compliance programs to validate the design and implementation of controls according to BPQ requirements. The comprehensive validation procedures included structured inquiries, policy and procedure inspections, reviews with supporting evidence, and onsite dynamic control observations.
In November 2021, TruSight issued its first risk assessment of McConnell Jones, Comprehensive Assessment of McConnell & Jones, LLP. McConnell Jones now undergoes annual TruSight reviews to ensure that the assessment remains current and reflects new regulatory requirements and technology updates in McConnell & Jones systems.
