SyntheSys is proud to announce that we have achieved Cyber Essentials, a Government-backed cyber security certification that sets out a minimum standard for cyber security.
The Cyber Essentials scheme outlines five security controls to help organisations mitigate cyber risks and improve their cyber security posture. To achieve certification, organisations are required to address their boundary firewalls and Internet gateways, implement secure configuration, adequately manage access control and administrative privilege management, implement patch management, and ensure malware protection.
Nikki Haynes, Operations Manager of SyntheSys, said: “Achieving Cyber Essentials was seen as a way to demonstrate a level of assurance to our customers, by showing that security controls are in place to protect the business, its IT systems and information, and that these controls have been assessed against an independent, formal framework. ‘’
