Every day, new cybersecurity exploits are discovered which attempt to disrupt or gain access to business systems. Do you have plans in place for what you would do if your customer database was stolen, your website was forced offline, or you could no longer access your email or business-critical data? This is where the Government backed Cyber Essentials scheme comes in.
Cyber Essentials aims to raise awareness in UK business as to the dangers they are exposed to on a daily basis, but most importantly offers simple common-sense steps to protect against threats such as hacking, unauthorised access, viruses and trojans.
For the last two years, it has been a legal requirement for all businesses that are bidding for certain sensitive and personal information handling contracts to be certified by this program.
For more information on Cyber Essentials, please visit the official UK Government Cyber Essentials website at https://www.cyberaware.gov.uk/cyberessentials/
Wytech can guide you through the certification process, identifying key areas of risk and outlining steps you can follow in order to minimise both the likelihood and impact of a potential attack. Wytech can also help you build and expand on measures you may already have in place to strengthen your defences against cyber attack.
Wytech are Cyber Essentials certified since 2016 and have many years’ experience of industry security best practices and of the Cyber Essentials certification procedure.
Wytech can handle the certification process on your behalf, ultimately presenting you with the Cyber Essentials badge. This can be added to your website, emails and company stationary as proof to your customers, suppliers and employees that the information that they are giving to you is safe in your hands.
So if you would like an evaluation of your current IT security or would like to lean on our expertise to help and support you through the certification process, speak to one of our friendly well-trained staff today.
