Cyber Essentials Plus certification
Chris Broome – Chartered Financial Planner
In January 2023 we secured the Cyber Essentials Plus Accreditation.
Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect our organisation against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals.
They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.
Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.
Why is this important?
- Reassures our clients that we are working to secure your IT against cyber attack.
- Reassure new prospective clients that we have cyber security measures in place.
- Longhurst has a clear picture of our organisation’s cyber security level.
- Some Government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification.
We’d like to thank our IT and cyber partners, YourCloudWorks, for their support is securing this accreditation – top work.
