We are pleased to announce that we have obtained the Cyber Essentials accreditation. Cyber Essentials is a Government and industry recognised scheme designed to help us improve our defences and demonstrate our commitment to IT and cyber security.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security — particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:
- hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
- phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
- password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords.
The certification demonstrates our commitment to our customers and suppliers that we are continuously working to secure our IT and data against cyber attacks.
