We receive Cyber Essentials certification
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve received IASME Cyber Essentials certification.
Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme which focuses on five important technical controls which are designed to guard against the most common internet based cyber security threats.
It allows organisations of all sizes to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.
Our Information Security and Technology Manager Mike Platts says: “This is great news for Citizen in terms of cyber security!
“Cyber Essentials is the UK Government’s answer to a safer internet space for organisations of all sizes, across all sectors.
“It is considered essential for a more secure network and it protects those who achieve certification from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches.
“We’re committed to preventing our systems and data from security breaches here at Citizen and gaining Cyber Essentials certification really helps us achieve this and shows our commitment to keeping our systems and our customers information safe.
Gaining Cyber Essentials certification really shows our commitment to keeping our systems and our customers information safe.
“Thank you to everyone in our ICT team who has worked with me to achieve this certification. Next year, we’ll be going for Cyber Essentials+ certification!”
