Connexica are pleased to announce that they have been awarded Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by the Government with the aim to help organisations to implement basic levels of protection against cyber-attacks. The scheme has three clear purposes:
• Ensure organisations are protected against common cyber threats
• Provide customers assurance that precautions for cyber security are taken
• Certify organisations so they are able to bid for Government contracts
The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect organisations against cyber-attacks.
To achieve the highest certification, Cyber Essentials Plus, Connexica have been independently tested by an external body using a range of techniques and tools to test security levels.
“We are always striving to improve our security measures to protect our customers and organisation,” said Kevin Strachan, Operations Director at Connexica. Strachan continued, “Meeting the requirements for Cyber Essentials Plus highlights our continued commitment to cyber security.”
Cyber Essentials offers a sound foundation of measures that organisations can implement and build upon. It defines a focused set of controls that provide cost-effective, basic cyber security for organisations of all sizes.
