Itech Support achieves Cyber Essentials Accreditation

October 2017

Itech Support Limited has today successfully achieved Cyber Essentials accreditation, which verifies that we have been tested and found to have robust cyber security defences in place.

Cyber Essentials is a government and industry recognised cyber security certification that businesses are encouraged to adopt to safeguard data and to provide protection from the most prevalent forms of threat coming from the internet.

Itech Support was assessed by an IASME certification body, one of just four companies appointed as Accreditation Bodies for assessing and certifying against the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme.

Lee Maloney, Itech Support Managing Director, commented “To achieve this accreditation further demonstrates our commitment to IT security and reassures our current and prospective customers that our policies, procedures and security mechanisms adhere to government endorsed standards. It is also one of the first steps to GDPR compliance.”

Cyber Essentials Notes to Editors:

Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber-attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously whilst at the same time protecting their reputation.

The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities – which are freely available on the internet.

Organisations that undertake Cyber Essentials are encouraged to recertify at least once a year and, where appropriate, progress their security. Through the certification channels, all companies that achieve the cyber essentials accreditation are eligible to free Cyber Insurance up to £25,000.

Since 1 October 2014, Cyber Essentials became a minimum requirement for bidding for some government contracts.
