We are proud to announce that we have achieved Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. 2021 has been one that we feel we can look back on with immense pride, and we are thrilled to end it with this accreditation.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber attacks and provides a clear statement of the basic controls organisations should have in place to protect themselves.
It is the UK government’s answer to a safer internet space for organisations of all sizes, across all sectors. Developed and operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Cyber Essentials is considered the best first step to a more secure network, protecting you from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches.
Gaining Cyber Essentials certification also enables organisations to showcase their credentials as trustworthy and secure when it comes to cyber security.
The certification defines a focused set of controls that provide clear guidance on basic cyber security for organisations of all sizes and offers a sound foundation of cyber security measures that all types of organisations can implement.
- Cyber Essentials is a foundation level certification designed to provide a statement of the basic controls your organisation should have in place to mitigate the risk from common cyber threats.
- Cyber Essentials Plus is the highest level of certification offered under the Cyber Essentials scheme.It is a more rigorous test of your organisation’s cyber security systems where our cyber security experts carry out vulnerability tests to make sure that your organisation is protected against basic hacking and phishing attacks.
Following this achievement, our Managing Director, Ram Gupta, stated: “We have had a busy year making sure that we have all the key accreditations in place as we prepare for further growth. Cyber Essentials Plus is our guarantee that our clients are in excellent hands. Cyber Essentials Plus is also vital for us as we begin to target both public and private sector contracts.”
