Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme that showcases an organisation's prowess at preventing various online threats. Two levels of certification are available: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. Back in April 2020, Netstar successfully renewed its Cyber Essentials certification. This alone provides reassurances that the company is more than capable of standing up to cyber-attacks. —
As of last week, Netstar also renewed its Cyber Essentials Plus certifications. This takes things an extra step further and demonstrates the company has an even higher level of cybersecurity than organisations with only the Cyber Essentials certification.
Five key security controls are assessed
External professionals provided a full assessment and hands-on technical verification before awarding the certification renewal to Netstar. During this assessment, five key security controls were looked at. This includes internet connection security, devices & software security, controlled access to data & services, protection from viruses & malware, and updating devices & software.
Undergoing such an extensive check of these vital security areas proves Netstar's dedication to maximising its own and its client's cybersecurity. Modern businesses face numerous unknown threats from the online world. All it takes is one mistake to allow a hacker in. From here, a cyber-attack can be potentially deadly for a small-to-medium-sized business. Thanks to Netstar's incredible security certifications, the chances of these threats presenting themselves is dramatically decreased.
The Cyber Essentials Plus certification can help organisation avoid costly mistakes related to data breaches. It also ensures that a business adheres to government standards and meets the relevant security regulations.
