ICON achieves Cyber Essentials Certification20-02-2017
We’re delighted to announce that ICON has achieved the Cyber Essentials Certification accredited by APMG International. Cyber Essentials is an industry-supported certification scheme developed by the UK Government. It ensures that governmental suppliers have all the necessary technical and operational controls in place to protect against common cyber-attacks and safeguard personal information. Any ICT supplier wishing to work with the UK Government and its agencies must have this certification.
One in four businesses in the UK experienced a cyber attack or breach in the past 12 months, disrupting the company’s daily activities and resulting in thousands of euros worth of costs. Luckily, most attacks can be prevented by accurate layers of security. Achieving certification in Cyber Essentials provides reassurance that the certified organisation has covered the essential cybersecurity precautions.
The Cyber Essentials Certification addresses the need for government and the wider industry to ensure that their partners are employing a standard level of cybersecurity, and allows the certified organisation to provide evidence to its clients and stakeholders that their assets and data are protected against cyber threats.
