As a large proportion of the UK workforce continue to work remotely, IT security continues to be a major concern for individuals and businesses.
Cyber Essentials is a UK Government Backed scheme to ensure that businesses conform to a set of standards to protect themselves against a range of the most common cyber attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus includes technical verification and vulnerability scanning performed by a certified 3rd party organisation.
Companies bidding for central government contracts in the UK which involve handling of sensitive and personal information are actually required to have Cyber Essentials Certification.
Therefore I am happy to announce that Meritum Cloud is now Cyber Essentials Plus certified.
As part of this certification we have improved internal processes and implemented additional security features such as App Locker application white listing using Microsoft Intune.
As with all IT security, Cyber Essentials Plus is an ongoing process. Recertification takes place yearly with many businesses opting to do quarterly or bi annual scans to ensure they adhere to the requirements.
We are pleased to have reached another milestone on our compliance roadmap and happy to be able to offer our customers the peace of mind that comes with it.
