Cyber Essentials Plus was designed to deal with the issues faced by the Government and further industries, enabling their partners and suppliers to introduce a high standard of cybersecurity.
Organisations that carry the Cyber Essentials Plus certification will provide partners, suppliers, and customers with confidence while also proving that their data is protected from the risk of cyberattacks.
There has been a significant increase in cyber-attacks causing a huge array of problems. Every business is at risk when sensitive information, intellectual property, and business strategies prove to be attractive targets for criminals. If proper protection is not put in place to prevent these cyber attacks and minimize the risk of data loss, then it could have a significant impact on share price and revenues, as well as, leading to penalties and damage to your reputation.
Having Cyber Essentials certification delivers a level of assurance that proves that you are using the cybersecurity controls in the right way.
Cyber Essentials underpins Cyber Essentials Plus. This level determines whether the controls have been implemented correctly to protect against all threats.
Internet Gateways and Boundary Firewalls - stopping all unauthorized access.
Secure configuration – ensuring that the system is configured in the correct manner.
Correct access control – ensuring that only authorized personnel can access systems.
Malware protection – virus and malware protection is installed.
Patch management – Ensures that all applications have the latest patches installed.
At Teceze, we work hard to reduce the risk of these problems by introducing systems that are designed to future-proof your business from these attacks. Cyber Essentials Plus is a certification that is supported by the industry and has been created by the U.K. Government. It has set a number of criteria that organisations can use as a guide to measuring their cybersecurity systems by implementing five key controls. This can then help to reduce the risk of as much as 80% of cyber attacks.
