We are delighted to report our third annual successful certification of Cyber Essentials, the government backed scheme to certify organisations who have a clear picture of this topic AND robust security systems and processes in place.
We think this is a great scheme. It's not even expensive - unless you haven't already go the risks under control! Whilst our first attempt, four years ago, required us to change some of our systems, since then we have found the certification process much simpler.
The process also provides a valuable cyber security report, which has helpful actions that will improve security, going forward. Comically, in our case, our only "advice actions" were to re-instate some security practices that we had disabled earlier in the year - because our clients systems cannot work with them!
Well done to us!
