Here at Nimbus, we believe that the way a business approaches its own security, is a good measure as to how it goes about securing their customers data.
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the ‘Cyber Essentials Plus Certification’, which is designed to test that the required controls are in place, to test that systems and security software have been correctly configured to mitigate cyber-threats, and that the required policies are in place. An external vulnerability scan is also required as part of Cyber Essentials Plus.
WHAT IS CYBER ESSENTIALS?
Launched in June 2014, Cyber Essentials was developed by Government and industry to provide businesses with clarity and guidance on good basic cyber security practice. As of October 2014, the Government has also required any organisations bidding for central government contracts which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services to be certified.
