What does the Cyber Essentials certification cover?

The Cyber Essentials scheme offers very clear guidance on technical measures which must be implemented, across five different areas:

Firewalls – to protect all devices

Secure configuration – only necessary software, accounts and apps are used

User access control – control of user accounts and administrative access & rights

Malware protection – implement effective virus protection measures

Patch management – keep your devices, software and apps up to date.

What does this mean for our clients?

By gaining the Cyber Essentials certificate, Point Progress has ensured that we have the technical controls in place to be protected against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks. Our clients can be assured that our cyber security awareness and management is in hand, and that the data we hold is safe.

We are also reducing our risk of any interruptions to service which may be caused because of a cyber-attack.
