Today we are pleased to announce that Ashby Computers have passed and obtained the Cyber Essentials Certification, this extra certification which is reviewed by an independant body to show that we have secure methodology to secure and maintain our networks from cyber attacks, something that will be bought to all organisations attention with the upcoming GDPR changes coming in May.
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.
Our self-assessment option gives you protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. This is important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.
Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
Congratulations to all the staff at Ashby whom have helped make this possible – should you have any queries about cyber security / GDPR please make contact with us and we will see how we can help.
