Esoteric, the global counterespionage and electronic bug sweeping company, has just announced that, in the wake of a thorough and audited review of its information systems and processes, the business has been awarded Cyber Essentials certification by IASME.
Accreditation demonstrates the company’s commitment to information security, providing assurances to its myriad clients and partners who entrust the Old Woking-based business with their valuable and sensitive information.
“Information security is our top priority,” explained Emma Shaw MBA CSyP FSyl FCMI, Esoteric’s managing director, in conversation with Risk UK. “The Cyber Essentials accreditation shows our commitment to continual process improvement and the importance we afford to safeguarding sensitive information.”
Cyber Essentials is designed to help organisations implement protection regimes against cyber attack, demonstrating that they take cyber security seriously. The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against unskilled Internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities which are freely available on the Internet.
As of 1 October 2014, Cyber Essentials became a minimum requirement for bidding on some Government contracts (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0914-cyber-essentials-scheme-certification).
