In direct response to cyber threats, the UK HM Government began working to develop the Cyber Essentials Scheme, technical controls to be used by organizations to mitigate the risks associated with common Internet-based threats.
Cyber crime continues to pose a valid and growing threat for every business, large or small in London, Hertfordshire and across the UK.
As a result of these on-going and continuous threats, the HM Government worked with IASME (the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises consortium) and the ISF (the Information Security Forum) to develop the Cyber Essentials scheme, a technical and foundation-level security framework that organizations could adopt and meet to reduce the risks of cyber attacks.
Cyber Essentials will invaluably help bring UK businesses inline with the cyber security compliance requirements to meet the GDPR requirements, as well as strengthen the security of their business IT systems, their overall cyber security and business continuity policies.
Since the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) replaced the Data Protection Act on 25th May 2018, if your business faces a cyber attack where your company and client data becomes compromised, should you not have put in place significant operational and IT measures to protect and report data loss, under the GDPR , the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) can impose fines of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of group worldwide turnover (whichever is greater) against both data controllers (your business and its owners) and data processors (your employees).
2 out of the 12 steps for GDPR compliance include Data Privacy and Data Protection by Design DPIA and this is how Cyber Essentials relates and works to meet these very important GDPR compliant areas. In essence a fundamental and key part of GDPR surrounds Cyber Security to protect against Data Breaches and Data Protection and becoming Cyber Essentials Certified works to meet these two crucial GDPR areas.
Therefore, ensuring that your business computer systems and software platforms are cyber secure and that you as a business are Cyber Essentials Certified is essential to becoming GDPR compliant.
We’re proud to become Cyber Essentials Certified for our own Cyber Security and GDPR compliance. We achieved this for our own business to demonstrate how seriously we take Cyber and IT Security and to be able to do the same for our clients in London and Hertfordshire.
Our Managed CE Compliance performs a full Cyber Security Audit across your business network and devices using a GCHQ Cyber Accelerated platform. Our gap analysis audit will show your current cyber security status and the improvements that need to be made in-line with the Cyber Essentials Scheme requirements.
Once these technical changes have been made and we are satisfied that you will meet all of the Cyber Essentials Scheme criteria, we will submit the Cyber Essentials self-assessment directly to the IASME Accreditation Body on your behalf, who will certify you for the Cyber Essentials Scheme as well as arrange for £25,000 Cyber Liability Insurance Cover to be put in place.
