Our commitment to preventing and resisting cyber attacks has been recognised this month (April 2018) with 'Cyber Essentials' accreditation.
The accreditation process, backed by the Government's National Cyber Security Centre, assesses an organisation's resilience to common threats, including hacking, phishing and password guessing.
Cyber Essentials is an excellent way for a company to check it is using all the main techniques to thwart cyber criminals, covering everything from firewalls to protection from malware. It includes managing the risks of common practices, such as allowing employees to bring their own device (BYOD) to work.
To meet the standard, companies must demonstrate their ability to protect data – their own and their clients' – stored on devices which connect to the internet. As such, applying for the accreditation is one good way to prepare for the imminent tougher rules under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
