We have always employed strict security procedures at Soutron, ensuring our clients data is kept and maintained to the highest standards. We would like to announce that we have taken this one step further and are now Cyber Essentials Plus Certified.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is a cyber security standard, which organisations can be assessed and certified against. It identifies the security controls that an organisation must have in place within their IT systems in order to have confidence that they are addressing cyber security effectively and mitigating the risk from Internet-based threats.
The scheme focuses on the following five essential mitigation strategies within the context of the 10 Steps to Cyber Security guide.
• Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways
• Secure Configuration
• Access Control
• Malware Protection
• Patch Management
It provides organisations with clear guidance on implementation as well as offering independent certification for those who want it.
A primary objective of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy is to make the UK a safer place to conduct business online and all suppliers must be compliant with the new Cyber Essentials controls if bidding for government contracts which involve handling of sensitive and personal information and provision of certain technical products and services.
