CRITICAL Software Achieves Cyber Essentials Certification
December 22, 2016
CRITICAL Software has been awarded the Cyber Essentials certification by the IASME Consortium, an accreditation body appointed as part of the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme.
A key component in the UK’s national cyber security strategy, this scheme provides independent assessment of an organisation’s security controls. This helps to significantly increase a company’s data and operational security by ensuring the implementation of essential levels of protection against cyber-attack.
To achieve certification, organisations must implement five specific security controls: secure configuration, boundary firewalls and Internet gateways, access control and administrative privilege management, patch management and malware protection.
“CRITICAL Software had to complete a rigorous assessment which covered the five key elements of the Cyber Essentials programme,” explains Tiago Gomes, CRITICAL Software’s UK Quality Manager and part of the internal team who supported this project. “This confirmed that we had implemented sufficient and secure controls, demonstrating our commitment to excellent data management. We are delighted with the accreditation.”
