Cirrus are delighted to announce that we have gained Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation
The government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme is designed to improve the resilience of UK businesses to the most common cyber security threats. Cyber Essentials Plus is a more advanced level of assurance and includes an additional internal scan and on-site assessment. The scheme requires companies to implement five key controls:
- Secure configuration
- Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
- Access control and administrative privilege management
- Patch management
- Malware protection
To achieve this standard Cirrus worked with IT Labs who provided support through their products and services to evaluate Cirrus’ internal and external systems, and aided in strengthening system protection from cyber-attacks. Cirrus worked with IT Labs to complete the self-assessment process which was verified and certified by IT Labs.
Jon Dawson of Cirrus said: “It is reassuring to know that our facilities are secure, keeping our data safe is one of our main priorities. Cyber Essentials is becoming an essential requirement as part of many of customer requests. It is great that we have completed this at our earliest opportunity. All in all, it’s been a pleasure to work with IT Labs on our Cyber Essential’s Certification”.
