iSYSTEMS gains Government Cyber Essentials certification

2017-05-31

iSYSTEMS Ltd is proud to announce attainment of the UK Government Cyber Essentials Scheme certification. The Cyber Essentials Scheme is part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy and provides an independent assessment of the essential security controls that organisations need to have in place to mitigate risks from internet-borne threats. Accreditation demonstrates commitment to information security while providing assurance to clients and partners.

 

The Cyber Essential scheme requires:

  • Boundary firewalls and Internet Gateways
  • Secure configuration
  • User access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

“By successfully going through a Cyber Essentials assessment, iSYSTEMS has not only lowered the risk of serious data breaches and financial loss, but by displaying the Cyber Essentials Scheme badge we are demonstrating to customers that we have taken steps to be fundamentally cyber safe. This is a huge step forward for us as a company and will hopefully set us apart from our competitors. We will now be building upon this by progressing with our ISO27001 accreditation.” - Mick Cooper, Managing Director of iSYSTEMS.
