Cyber Essentials Certification for Point Progress

Cyber essentials certification

For the fourth consecutive year, we have achieved the Cyber essentials certification

As we are committed to ensuring that we have processes in place to keep information secure, we have gained this certification to help us better protect ourselves against cyber-attacks.

What does the Cyber essentials certification cover?

The Cyber essentials scheme offers very clear guidance on technical measures which must be implemented, across five different areas:

Firewalls – to protect all devices

Secure configuration – only necessary software, accounts, and apps are used

User access control – control of user accounts and administrative access & rights

Malware protection – implement effective virus protection measures

Patch management – keep your devices, software, and apps up to date.

What does this mean for our clients?

By gaining the Cyber Essentials certificate, we have ensured that we have the technical controls in place to be protected against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks.

Our clients can be assured that our cybersecurity awareness and management are in hand and that the data we hold is safe.

We are also reducing our risk of any interruptions to service which may be caused because of a cyber-attack.
