Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that sets out a good baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations in all sectors. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly, can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks.
Properly implemented cyber security has the additional advantage of increasing business efficiency throughout the organisation, therefore saving money and improving productivity.
Benefits of Cyber Essentials:
- It demonstrates to clients, insurers, investors and other interested parties that we have taken the precautions necessary to reduce cyber risks.
- We are able to bid for UK government contracts that involve the handling of personal and sensitive information, therefore increasing chances of securing business within the private sector.
- Insurance agencies look favourably on organisations with Cyber Essentials, resulting in lower insurance premiums.
The UK government now requires “suppliers of most contracts and services to hold a Cyber Essentials certificate.” and Heathcoat Fabrics are delighted to also hold this accreditation.
