The security of our client’s data is the number one priority at Box-it, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of sensitive data and personal information. To demonstrate Box-it’s commitment to cyber security we have been assessed and certified for Cyber Essentials. Launched in 2014 this Government-backed, industry supported scheme helps organisations protect themselves against online threats.
In order to achieve Cyber Essentials accreditation we engaged with our Network security consultants NTA Monitor. The process involved an audit of our policies and procedures, and a full scan of our network for configuration issues and security vulnerabilities. Our Infrastructure team worked with NTA Monitor throughout every stage of the process to ensure all the required information was on hand and to action any suggestions in a timely manner. For the accreditation audit a final scan took place and no issues were identified within the network, meaning our processes and procedures in place were fully resilient. Following the audit we were issued with the Cyber Essentials accreditation.
Cyber security isn’t just about getting certified, it is about continuing to assess the threats to your organisation and taking action in a timely manner. The scheme lists five technical controls that you can put in place for your organisation right now. Organisations shouldn’t just worry about their own cyber security but also that of their supply chain, you can check if a company is certified using the Cyber Essentials Database.
The Cyber Essentials certification joins our long list of ISO & BS accreditations, including ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management, ISO 9001:2015 Quality, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental, IO 22301:2012 Business Continuity and BS 10008:2014 Legal Admissibility.
