We are delighted to announce our successful certification to Cyber Essentials and IASME Governance. Gaining Cyber Essentials and IASME Governance, a Government backed scheme, is a simple yet effective way for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.
With cyber threats increasing in both volume and sophistication, Cyber Essentials and IASME Governance demonstrates that a business has introduced proven cyber security and information assurance controls that help protect against a range of the most common internet based cyber threats.
Implementing proven cyber security controls, is important to our business. Gaining Cyber Essentials was important to demonstrate to our current and future clients that we take security seriously. We’re delighted our investment has paid off.
The protection of our own data, and that of our clients, is key to our business. These certifications demonstrate we are doing the
fundamentals correctly. We’re delighted our investment has paid off.
These days, cyber threats can target vulnerabilities just as much as they target specific organisations. In that regard, no business is immune from this modern-day threat.
The certification has been awarded through the National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber Essentials Partner, the IASME Consortium. Dr Emma Philpott, CEO of the IASME Consortium said, “We’re delighted for Closed Door Security and I congratulate them for recognising the key role cyber security plays in any organisation. These certifications are also a true demonstration to their clients that Closed Door Security has considered the importance of their customers’ security as much as their own.”
Cyber Essentials and IASME Governance is the latest addition to the wider portfolio of certifications. The UK Government recognise the challenge from the current cyber threat and have the ambition to tackle it head on. Cyber Essentials is very much part of the National Cyber Security Strategy and through gaining the certification, certified company name is making an
important and valuable contribution towards the Government’s aim of making the UK the safest place to do business online.
Being awarded these certifications is the first step in becoming the only certification body for these schemes in the Western Isles and soon after, to become the only certification body to offer Cyber Essentials Plus within the whole of the Highlands And Islands.
