The Curve Group Awarded A Cyber Essentials Certification From The National Cyber Security Centre

The Curve Group awarded a Cyber Essentials certification from the National Cyber Security Centre

Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme which provides a foundation of measures that organisations can implement and build upon to significantly reduce business vulnerability from cyber threats. It does not remove all cyber security risk, but it does define a focused set of controls that provide cost-effective cyber security for organisations of all sizes which also adheres to GDPR requirements.

The five technical controls include:

  • Preventing unauthorised access with boundary firewalls
  • Setting up systems securely using secure configurations
  • Restricting access to those who need it with user access control
  • Using anti-virus software as malware protection
  • Updating software for patch management

The Curve Group’s IT Partner Mirus IT supported the certification process – commenting on the recent certification Darren Challender, Head of Professional Services of Mirus IT stated that “It was a pleasure working with The Curve Group to certify them with Cyber Essentials. The whole process was made simpler due to the businesses decision to take Cyber Security seriously and implement continuous improvements to protect their own and their client’s data in line with GDPR.

Jeanette Ramsden, CEO of The Curve Group commented: “Our Cyber Essentials certification is formal recognition of the pro-active measures we have been implementing to reduce the threat of Cyber Security. This has enabled us to have a clear picture on our Cyber Security levels and has helped us guard against the most common cyber threats. We do appreciate that whilst we have obtained the certification the threat is still out there and we need to remain vigilant at all times.”
