Digital Craftsmen, the Cloud hosting and managed services specialist company has achieved the leading UK Govt endorsed Security industry certification – Cyber Essentials Plus – awarded after a rigorous technical review of the company’s security processes, platform and people, the company’s workstations and successfully provided evidence and demonstrated its security compliance against different risk and threat vulnerabilities.
‘Cyber Essentials is a cyber security standard that uses independent third party assessment parties to identify the IT security controls that an organisation needs to have in place to have confidence that they are addressing cyber security effectively and mitigating the risk from internet-borne threats.’ Cyber Essentials
‘An organisation’s technology that is exposed to common cyber-attacks will typically include internet connected computers, such as desktop PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones, along with internet connected servers such as email, web and application servers.’ Cyber Essentials
The award reinforces Digital Craftsmen’s determination to ensure the skills and knowledge training for its employees are at the highest industry levels. The benefits of this commitment are clear as it means the Craftsmen offer the very best security expertise and managed services for its clients, and now with further certification to verify this.
Simon Wilcox, founder of Digital Craftsmen says:
“Cyber Essentials is an important certification for us to achieve as it’s increasingly required for public sector work. Even with our well established ISO27001 certification, CE+ isn’t a box ticking exercise, it still challenges us to be the best we can be. I’m pleased with the commitment of the team to security in everything we do.”
The Digital Craftsmen team decided to go straight for Cyber Essential Plus level which involved a far more thorough assessment of its security practices, processes and people as it would demonstrate its commitment and expertise in keeping to the highest standards of industry security standards.
As Paul Orrock, Technical Director adds:
‘This is proof of our ongoing commitment to always making sure that Digital Craftsmen are at the forefront of security standards and applying them across the board. Security is key to everything that we do and achieving this standard is proof that the whole company fully applies that ethos.’
