Cyber security is fundamental as it encompasses everything from personal identifiable information(PII), intellectual property, protecting sensitive data, health information to government and industry information systems.
In today’s tech savvy world, we are driven by global connectivity and usage of the Cloud to store sensitive or personal information leading to an increased risk of being exposed to cyber security vulnerabilities.
That is why here at Kick ICT, we believe it is fundamentally important to have safe, secure and reliable data. We are serious about our commitment to UK domestic and international standards on cyber security, which is why we are pleased to announce we have achieved certification to the UK government Cyber Essentials scheme.
Cyber Essentials is a government backed, industry supported scheme used to encourage organisations to protect themselves against common online threats and adopt secure IT practices for cyber and data security. The scheme launched back in 2014 to enable businesses to gain one of two Cyber Essentials badges and is suitable for all organisations, any size and in any sector.
The Government now requires all suppliers bidding contracts involving the handling of certain sensitive and personal information to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme. This was developed in collaboration with UK Government and Industry partners, such as – the information security forum, the assurance for small and medium enterprises consortium and British standards institution.
The main benefits obtained from Cyber Essentials Plus are:
