As an IT Solutions provider, it is so important that not only do we provide Cyber Security services to our clients, but to also ensure that we abide by the best practices ourselves.
For these reasons, we are committed to ensuring our own internal systems and processes operate such a way that there is not only protection against our own systems, but also the data that is contained in them. That is why we are delighted to announce that we are accredited to both the Cyber Essentials scheme, and Cyber Essentials Plus.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is an effective, government-backed scheme that assesses companies and issues certifications.
The scheme covers 5 cyber security controls:
The certificates are valid for a period of 12 months, meaning that this is an ongoing commitment to security.
The Cyber Essentials Plus scheme has the same requirements as the Cyber Essentials scheme, but with the addition of a technical audit of our system, with the aim of confirming that all the controls that we have declared within our Cyber Essentials accreditation are actually implemented – ensuring that we do exactly what we say we are doing, and this is ratified by highly-trained, government-accredited professionals.
As well as our new accreditations to the Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus schemes, we are also proud to a Microsoft Silver Partner. This award proves our competency in training, performance, quality of service and customer care. This is an official Microsoft competency and not just a ‘paid for’ certificate. The requirements are strict and place us in the top 5% of all Microsoft Partners Network-connected companies.
So when you are looking to partner with an IT & Systems provider like us, you can be sure in the knowledge that we have the abilities and processes to ensure that your systems and data are secure – and it isn’t just us saying that, we’ve got the proof to back it up.
