We are pleased to announce that Kids Planet has attained the Cyber Essentials certification.
A special thanks to our small but dedicated IT team who have recently been doing a lot of work in the background to get all Head Office based devices and network hardware secured and patched.
Andy Rowson, IT Manager, said: “I’m pleased to announce that with our new and improved security measures, we are now officially Cyber Essentials certified.
Cybersecurity is of major importance to us as a growing business and we always striving to improve our posture and challenge ourselves to achieve even better.”
The certification allows the company to be assessed by cyber security experts, protect our business against common cyber threats, and demonstrates our adherence to government standards.
Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that helps protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.
Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.
Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.
