Following our successful Cyber Essentials accreditation in December last year, we are now delighted to have been awarded Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. To achieve this higher level, a certified external organisation conducted a thorough inspection of our workstations.
The “Plus” accreditation means that we are now able to bid for all Central Government contracts and more importantly, it gives us confidence that our systems are protected from the most common cyber threats.
Cyber Essentials Plus shows that our business processes and implementations meet the required standard, and in addition to this, our IT Service Desk members have all started information security training courses so that a good level of cyber security understanding underpins our IT strategy. We are increasingly looking for Information Security standards as a requirement of their suppliers.
