Vivio gain new Cyber Essentials Plus certification

Summary

At Vivio, safeguarding our client’s data is of utmost importance to us. Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that helps us guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate our commitment to cyber security.

"We take security incredibly seriously and the CE+ certification means our Clients can rest assured that we employ best practice, not only for ourselves, but for their accounts as well.”

Greg Nott Head of Managed Services

The UK government launched the Cyber Essentials scheme back in 2014 and the certification has since become a requirement for any company bidding for government contracts who handle sensitive and personal information.

According to the National Cyber Security Centre, “Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Our advice is designed to prevent these attacks.”

The certification process requires an organisation to meet the following technical control requirements;

  • Firewalls
  • Secure configuration
  • User access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

We are proud to announce that we passed our independent assessment and analysis of existing security controls to ensure we protect ourselves and more importantly, our clients.
