We are Cyber Essentials certified! 

We are pleased to announce that we are now Cyber Essentials certified.

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry supported scheme that helps businesses to protect themselves against the ever-growing threat of cyber-attacks.

The Cyber Essentials scheme focuses on the 5 most important technical security controls that were identified by government as those that, had they been in place, would’ve stopped most of the successful cyber-attacks over the last few years.


These are:

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
  • Secure configuration
  • Access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

What does it mean to be Cyber Essentials certified? 

Being Cyber Essential certified gives reassurance to our customers as we are in compliance with a Government recognised level of information security. Cyber Essentials demonstrates that our organisation is security conscious and we value the importance of securing our customers data.

  • Our critical data is protected against prevalent cyber threats
  • We can demonstrate to our customers our commitment to security
  • It is an important part of our GDPR Compliance
  • It ensures that we maintain our exceptional reputation

You can do it too 

We believe every company should take security seriously, so we encourage you to review (and implement) the Cyber Essentials requirements and even apply for certification. If you need help understanding or implementing any of these controls, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
