Infosec Cloud has successfully achieved Cyber Essentials accreditation, which verifies that Infosec Cloud has been tested and found to have robust cyber security defences in place.
Cyber Essentials is a government and industry recognised cyber security certification that businesses are encouraged to adopt to safeguard data and to provide protection from the most prevalent forms of threat coming from the internet.
Infosec Cloud was assessed by IASME, one of just four companies appointed as Accreditation Bodies for assessing and certifying against the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme.
Pete Sherwood, MD Infosec Cloud, commented, “This accreditation further demonstrates our commitment to IT security and reassures our current and prospective customers that our policies, procedures and security mechanisms adhere to government endorsed standards.”
Cyber Essentials Notes to Editors:
Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously.
The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against unskilled internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities – which are freely available on the internet.
Organisations that undertake Cyber Essentials are encouraged to recertify at least once a year and, where appropriate, progress their security.
Since 1 October 2014, Cyber Essentials became a minimum requirement for bidding for some government contracts (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0914-cyber-essentials-scheme-certification)
