Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation for 2020 and beyond
Our team strives to protect ourselves and clients against different cyber risks and vulnerabilities. We continue to maintain the highest security standards, applying them across the board, ensuring the whole company fully applies and shares the same ethos.
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government assurance standard (led by the National Cyber Security Centre), designed to improve the resilience of UK businesses to prevent most cyber security threats.
Cyber Essentials Plus is an advanced level of assurance which includes an internal workstation vulnerability assessment carried out on-site by an independent CREST certified body. As part of our certification process, a technical review and evaluation of our security processes and policies was completed by an external certifying body, Armadillo Security.
The Cyber Essential Plus scheme requires TenIntelligence to implement five key controls: secure configuration, boundary firewalls and internet gateways, access control and administrative privilege management, patch management and malware protection.
Our Chief Operating Officer, Richard Bell, welcomed the accreditation, “Cyber Essentials Plus is an important certification for us. It clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to continually ensure that TenIntelligence is at the forefront of applying the best security standards. Security is crucial to everything that we do and achieving this certification along with our well-established ISO27001 certification, allows us and our clients to operate with confidence.”
Neil Miller, CEO and Founder added, “Our continued mission is to help protect our clients, colleagues and their livelihoods from harm through effective due diligence, investigation and protection. We are really pleased to receive the accreditation and extend our cyber security services to our clients. As with our other ISO accreditation and processes, this was again a team effort and I congratulate them on this success.”
The unstoppable growth and dynamic of cyber-enabled crime mean organisations of all sizes need to rethink their approach to security. Everyone knows that security is important, and we all rely on the Internet, IT and other connected systems, all of which without the appropriate protection could be at risk from a cyber-attack. These attacks are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and stealthier, targeting people, networks and devices.
