ITCenter is Cyber Essentials certified since December 2022. This certification is a UK government-backed scheme that helps businesses of all sizes protect themselves against common cyber threats. Cyberattacks can come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are basic in nature and carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. Cyber Essentials is an information security scheme designed to prevent these attacks.
The certification provides several benefits to organizations, including improved cybersecurity by identifying and addressing common vulnerabilities in their IT systems and networks. This helps to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and data breaches. It also gives organizations a competitive advantage in the marketplace by demonstrating to customers, partners, and stakeholders that they take cybersecurity seriously and have implemented effective measures to protect against cyber threats.
Cyber Essentials' certification can also help organizations comply with various data protection and privacy regulations, such as GDPR, and may be a requirement for some government contracts. In addition, it is a cost-effective way for organizations to improve their cybersecurity posture, as it provides a clear framework for implementing basic security measures.
By achieving Cyber Essentials certification, organizations can rest assured that they have taken important steps to protect their business and customers from cyber threats. ITCenter's Cyber Essentials' certification demonstrates its commitment to providing secure and reliable services to its customers.
