Taking cyber security seriously

We are delighted to announce we have achieved Cyber Security certification, as part of the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme.

The Scheme focuses on five important technical security controls that were identified by the government as those that, if they had been in place, would have stopped the majority of the successful cyber-attacks over the last few years. The five controls were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against unskilled internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities – which are freely available on the internet. Each organisation assesses themselves against the controls and a qualified assessor verifies the information provided independently.

Since 1 October 2014, Cyber Essentials became a minimum requirement for bidding for some government contracts, a trend that could be adopted by the private sector.  For further information on how your organisation can participate, please see www.cyberstreetwise.comcyberessentials and  https://www.iasme.co.uk/certified-organisations/
