SyntheSys is delighted to have been recognised for its proficiency in Cyber Security, having attained the Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats.
The certification provides a rigorous test of an organisation’s cyber security systems through detailed on-site vulnerability assessments carried out by independent cyber security experts. In addition to the initial self-assessment, security checks against both internal devices and external facing systems are designed to ensure that IT security systems can withstand potential hacking and phishing attacks.
SyntheSys’ Operations Manager, Nikki Haynes, said: “It is widely recognised that today’s digital age poses an ever-changing cyber landscape and threat; which is why attaining both levels of Cyber Essentials has been an important aim for the company from the moment the scheme started.
SyntheSys has always been committed to ensuring appropriate measures remain in place regarding our information security risk, as well as to meet ongoing contractual and supply chain needs. Having started with Cyber Essentials, achieving the next level, Cyber Essentials Plus, demonstrates to our Customers that we have successfully implemented yet another tier of controls in our endeavours to combat these threats. As the assessment included independent onsite testing to a recognised level, this offers an extra assurance and confidence to anyone working with us that we do indeed take the cyber threat seriously.’’
