Cyber Essentials

WHAT IS CYBER ESSENTIALS?

The continued risk of cyber crime and cyber attacks on businesses can be a concern and this is why action must be taken. Cyber Essentials is recognised nationwide as a recognised option for SME’s to improve protection against cyber related attacks.

It is a UK government backed scheme to help businesses better protect themselves against cyber attacks. It provides a clear guide on the controls any business should have in place to mitigate the risk of an online attack.

Launched on the 5th June 2014, it is a certification scheme that is applicable to any sized UK business, and it has been designed to make sure it viable for the needs of the SME market as well as larger enterprises.

WHO DOES IT BENEFIT?

Having Cyber Essentials certification benefits CTR as a company but more importantly benefits our clients as proves that we are taking measures against cyber crime and this includes protecting data.

In addition to Cyber Essentials, we continue to strive towards ISO 27001 which further benefits our company and our clients.

ISO 27001 (formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2005) is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.
