This month, X3C is proud to announce that they have achieved certification from Cyber Essentials Plus proving its dedication to cyber security and protection from cyber attacks.
Cyber Essentials is an official UK Government backed scheme that encourages organisations to adopt best practice in information security and ensures they take sufficient measures to prevent against the risks of possible cyber attacks. Threats to cyber security come in many shapes and sizes and Cyber Essentials Plus is a certification that acknowledges protection against these attacks as well as our our strong security management ethos and procedural framework. The Cyber Essentials Plus Certification is the highest level of accreditation and is awarded by means of an independent assessment of the business security controls and processes.
X3C is dedicated to investing in its cyber security and data protection and will continue to keep abreast of the changing landscape ensuring that personal data is managed properly and kept in a secure and safe digital environment.
Nick Tucker, Operations Director of X3 Consulting commented “Achieving the Cyber Essentials Plus certification is evidence of the hard work of our support teams behind the scenes, in ensuring our cyber security is as strong as possible to protect our clients’ data. Our clients can rest assured that we are following best practice guidelines and recognise the importance of keeping their personal data secure.”
We are pleased to announce that X3 Consulting have been awarded Cyber Essentials certification from IASME.
Cyber Essentials is the UK government certification which protects SMEs from 80% of cyber attacks. It’s the recommended level of cybersecurity for all businesses.
Having achieved the accreditation we now continuously monitor every registered device to make sure we are secure 24/7/365.
There are four key reasons to attain the Cyber Essentials certification.
- It helps to protect against cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials accreditation mitigates the risk by identifying and resolving the most common weaknesses, providing a strong base for us to work from.
- Cyber Essentials prepares the way for GDPR compliance by reducing the likelihood of us experiencing a GDPR breach.
- The freedom to bid for government contracts, as Cyber Essentials is now a mandatory requirement.
- Demonstrates that we’re serious about cybersecurity and are a company you can trust to handle your data.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Program and having the certification shows you are serious about security.
Director Nick Tucker commented, “Our Cyber Essentials accreditation demonstrates X3 Consulting are serious about protecting our customers against common cyber threats.
