Cyber Essentials accredited

by Mark Rowe

Ward Security has gained Cyber Essentials accreditation after an independent assessment of its IT network and systems. The quality mark which was created by the UK’s official National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is a national UK Government standard that shows a company’s commitment to cyber security.

Kevin Ward, pictured, Managing Director of Ward Security said: “For every business ensuring you have adequate security goes far beyond the physical protection of premises and employees. Cyber security is a global issue affecting all businesses and for us, it is imperative that we can show our clients that we have taken all available steps to protect them and the data we hold about them on our systems. This accreditation follows a stringent assessment of our policies and system and I am very proud to be able to say we have achieved it.”

And Nikhil Kamboj, Business Services Director at Ward Security said: “Cyber Essentials sets out five security controls to protect any organisation against the most common threats. It is also one of the most recognised standards recommended under new GDPR compliance. Gaining accreditation will give our clients further confidence and assurance that we have robust measures in place to protect ourselves against cyber-attacks. However, gaining accreditation is not simply a case of achieving a tick in a box and importantly it is about maintaining these standards for us will continue to be an ongoing process. Wherever possible we will look to utilise the latest techniques to ensure our systems are watertight and we are now working towards gaining IS027001.”
