Solidifying our commitment to security for staff and clients alike, we recently went through the audit process to gain our Cyber Essentials certificate.
The Cyber Essentials qualification is a Government backed initiative that helps organisations ensure they are following best practice when it comes to internal IT policies. It involves working alongside an external auditor who delves into the inner workings of your company.
For us, this involved providing evidence on items such as:
- Firewall and VPN configurations
- Operating systems
- Password policies
- Usage rights
- Storage of data
We are delighted to have gained this certificate as not only is it proof of our security credentials, but it is also reassuring to know that we are working to Government backed best-practice guidelines.
If you would like to discuss your own security policies, or if you are thinking of going for Cyber Essentials yourself and would like some advice, we’d love to hear from you.
