Renewing Our Cyber Essentials Plus Accreditation

Blue Frontier has successfully passed the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation for the second year running. This means that yet again we have been classified as a trustworthy and secure company when it comes to cyber security. We are certified to keep helping other organisations become accredited by developing and implementing policies and procedures within businesses and, more importantly, helping organisations identify vulnerabilities and improve their security controls.

 

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials is a government-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against potential cyber-attacks, and provides a clear framework of the basic tools and skills an organisation should have in place to ensure its digital safety. The certification offers a focused set of controls, which provide guidance on cyber security for organisations of all sizes, and defines the foundation of cyber security measures.

This year the Cyber Essentials Plus test has been even more rigorous, with a wide variety of vulnerability tests we had to carry out to ensure the organisation is protected from hacking and phishing attacks. We further improved our firewalls, passwords, access control, patch management and our protection from viruses and malware.

 

The Benefits of Cyber Essentials

  • Protects your organisation

The control measures implemented within the scheme protect the organisation from 80% of common cyber threats. These controls involve firewalls, secure configuration, control user access, anti-malware and anti-phishing security.

  • Opportunity to work with government contracts

We are fully certified and experienced to work with governmental bodies. 

  • Credibility and reputation

Achieving the Cyber Essentials Plus certification two years in a row shows our commitment to protecting our data as well as our clients. Our priority is to take all the necessary preventative measures to reduce the threat of cyber-attacks.

  • Better understanding of cyber risks

Cyber Essentials Plus provides companies with a better understanding of cyber threats due to the on-site vulnerability scan.
