Procura delighted to be awarded ‘Cyber Essentials’ certification
Procura Consulting is delighted to have been awarded the government backed Cyber Essentials (CE) Certification, proving our commitment to safeguarding our systems and data, and reinforcing our capabilities as a provider of managed security services.
Our Cyber Essentials accreditation was awarded following stringent independent evaluation of our systems by an external assessor.
Part of the Government’s strategy ‘to make the UK one of the most secure places to do business in cyberspace’ Cyber Essentials is an important tool for any business or organisation at risk of internet-borne threats.
Companies with Cyber Essentials lower the risk of cyber-attack, and offer assurance to customers that sufficient security controls are being used to successfully reduce the risk of any breach on systems and data.
To gain Cyber Essentials Procura had to pass an external assessment covering the five key elements of the programme, to prove that we understand and implement the necessary infrastructure that protects our company systems and data.
This considers all end-user devices including: PCs, laptops, mobiles, and tablets, as well as internet-connected systems such as application servers, email and web, as laid out in the National Cyber Security Strategy.
Director/CTO, Ben Kitchen (pictured) said:
“We're extremely pleased to achieve the Cyber Essentials certification. Displaying the Cyber Essentials badge gives our customers confidence that we have the right protection and tools to protect our systems and data.
It also shows our commitment to best practise and sets an example to others that all businesses should achieve a minimum standard of security, regardless of type. Cyber Essentials provides an ideal benchmark to measure against.”
