Cyber Essentials Update
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government Scheme. It has been introduced to help businesses avoid common cyber threats which have dominated the headlines in recent years. We have been working with our clients to ensure a belt and braces approach to security in the run up to the new GDPR regulations.
We were delighted to receive this feedback from Family Matters Mediation:
The cyber essentials qualification was a requirement for the provision of the Cafcass programme, The Separated Parents Information Programme, which was awarded following a successful bid.
Director and course programme facilitator Juliette Dalrymple said “I am delighted that we have been successful in our bid. As part of the process we were required to obtain Cyber Essentials Plus Certification which means we are in an excellent position to manage the changes which will be implemented when the data protection regulations come into force in May 2018”.
When we were inspected we were one of only ten organisations to get the certification first time. This could not have been achieved without the support and help of Active IT Systems. Office Manager Claire Mawson commented “Robbie and Dan both took a calm methodical approach to ensure we were ready for the inspection. This approach was clearly effective. This is evidence that Family Matters’ IT with the support of Active IT Systems meets the most current IT security standards”.
If you are thinking about or would like to obtain a Cyber Essentials Certificate, please get in touch with us.
