Staying secure – our new cyber security certificate, Cyber Essentials Plus

As part of our continued commitment to quality and excellence, we’re delighted to have been presented with a new cyber security certificate called Cyber Essentials Plus. Aidan Bailey, our Chief Technology Officer, explains the relevance of the certification.

Cyber Essentials Plus is a UK based scheme which requires us to have a number of technical and procedural controls in place to guard against internet-borne cyber attacks. We’ve been audited to ensure these steps have been properly implemented across the company, meaning that we are now certified to a very high standard.

As we’ve all seen over the past 12 months, digital communications have become a much more normal way of interacting, so we wanted to ensure that we are doing everything we can to keep all of our IT systems secure against attack.
