Strong commitment to information security.
Cyber Essentials is the government scheme for businesses to prove their commitment to cyber security. The scheme is part of the UK's National Cyber Security Program and having the certification shows you are serious about security.
Director Nick Rowntree commented, "Having Cyber Essentials certification greatly helps to protect your organisation against common cyber threats. Cyber Essentials is also now mandatory for suppliers (or those involved in the supply chain) of Government contracts, which involve handling personal information or providing certain ICT products and services. Holding a Cyber Essentials badge also automatically entitles you to cyber liability insurance."
In addition to Cyber Essentials certification, System 15 have also achieved the IASME Standard. Comparable to ISO 27001 in the breadth of governance controls covered, this is an Information Assurance Standard designed specifically for SMEs within a supply chain who want to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security and the ability to properly protect their customer's information. Independently assessed by IASME, CEO Dr. Emma Philpott congratulated System 15 on gaining the certification.
The IASME Standard builds upon Cyber Essentials and adds compliance aspects such as Risk Assessments, ICT Policy, Asset Management, Personnel Security, Physical Security, Monitoring, Backup & Restore, Incident Management, and Disaster Recovery.
At System 15 we regularly advise our clients on cyber security issues. We consider information security a high priority and we work with clients to achieve their own Cyber Essentials certification. More information can be found on our cyber page here.
