Does my business need security certifications?
There is no doubt that securing and protecting information is an essential requirement for all businesses today, irrespective of the market sector or size. The challenge for many businesses is implementing and maintaining a level of information security that is appropriate to the business. This can be achieved by adopting an approach to information security management that is based on continuous improvement and monthly reviews – a management system. It is important to note no two information security management systems (ISMS’) are the same, due to the perceived value of the businesses information, business goals, risk appetites, demands by customers and regulators.
The ISMS should be tailored for your business requirements and reflect the business, how you work, the terminology used and be part of business as usual. We make sure to be fully aware of these requirements and we are dedicated to assisting you to identify, achieve and maintain your desired levels of information security.
Cyber Essentials is an official UK wide, government-backed certification that helps businesses guard against the most common cyber threats and reduce your risk by at least 80%. It also allows you to demonstrate your commitment to cyber security hygiene to prospective customers or regulators.
Cyber Essentials Plus, an official certification standard, requires an audit by a partner Certification Body. We can do remote auditing using proprietary software and stand ready to support those businesses who need to maintain their current certification or to gain a new certificate to carry on with their business or enter new procurement opportunities.
To ensure that your information security management system (ISMS) based on ISO 27001 is appropriate and effective, it is necessary to understand to what it will apply.
Our main objective with any compliance/certification project is to work closely with you and the business to ensure that any implementations not only meet the Standards’ requirements but are also appropriate and relevant to your business’s culture and size.
