While most of the world has been battling with lockdown, business continuity and staying safe, the world of cyber criminals has been booming with 80% of firms globally reporting an increase in cyber-attacks.
Eckoh is proud to announce that it has recently been awarded the Government Cyber Essentials Certification, which demonstrates our commitment to information security and providing assurance to clients and partners.
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats. Since its launch in 2014, the Government mandated all suppliers working for central government organisations to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme. This includes many of Eckoh’s clients and involves undergoing an independent risk assessment of the security controls in place to mitigate risk of internet threats.
Dave Holliday, Global IT Director at Eckoh comments, “Security has always been at the heart of what we do. Our clients and partners rely on our ability to protect all types of data, and adding Cyber Essentials accreditation re-emphasises the importance we place on safeguarding sensitive customer data.”
