, the leading cyber security services provider and CREST-accredited certification body for the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme, is pleased to award specialist insurance investigator Absolute Partnership
its Cyber Essentials certificate.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says, “I am pleased to congratulate Absolute Partnership on successfully meeting the Cyber Essential requirements and achieving certification. It demonstrates the company’s proactive approach to information security and data protection – an approach that should be adopted by every business in the UK.”
The Cyber Essentials scheme
was officially launched on 5 June 2014. It is emerging as the default minimum standard for cyber security and, from 1 October 2014, the UK Government requires organisations to prove compliance with the scheme in order to bid for government contracts that involve the handling of sensitive and personal information, and the provision of certain technical products and services.
In order to achieve Cyber Essentials certification, companies need to complete a self-assessment questionnaire, signed off by a senior company representative, which is then verified by an external certification body. An external vulnerability scan will also be required if the company has chosen to be certified through a CREST-approved certification body
like IT Governance.
IT Governance’s Cyber Essentials Certification
service is designed for organisations that do not require external help for completing the self-assessment questionnaire and is available as a convenient online service helping organisations to save time and money.
The IT Governance Cyber Essentials Certification service can be booked online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1622.aspx
