SES are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Cyber Essentials Accreditation, passing the penetration test with flying colours.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme, developed after it was realised that no individual scheme met its specific requirements.
Cyber Essentials delivers the basic controls that all organisations should implement to mitigate the risks from internet-based threats.
The scheme provides a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate that they have taken essential precautions to secure against the majority of cyber risks.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme is backed by major industry players including BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Barclays and Hewlett-Packard.
The Information Commissioner has stated that he “supports the Cyber Essentials Scheme and encourages all businesses to be assessed against it”.
At SES we take the security of your data very seriously. By choosing Commissum – A Crest Accredited Certification Body – to carry out a vulnerability scan as part of our Cyber Essentials Accreditation process to provide an additional level of independent verification, we can provide you with the assurance that your data is completely secure.
To enable us to continue delivering outstanding levels of service, we are also working tirelessly to address the recommendations Commissum made upon completion of the vulnerability scan, in order to ensure our network exceeds the required levels of security.
