ARK Consultancy has recently been awarded the Cyber Essentials Standard having met all the requirements of the scheme.
Cyber Essentials is a cyber security certification, published in 2014, that is backed by the UK Government in collaboration with the industry to promote a standard in cyber security practices across all industries and sectors. Based on five key controls, the scheme is designed to encourage organisations to adopt good security practices to address a number of common threats and minimise risk (even for businesses which aren’t particularly experienced in technology). An official Assurance Framework has been produced to enable organisations to successful obtain the certification by providing relevant guidance in the steps required to implement the appropriate controls to be compliance with the scheme at relatively low cost.
Tim Frondigoun, Director at ARK Consultancy said “At ARK we are committed to ensuring our ICT infrastructure is fit for purpose and ensuring we are adequately protected against cyber crime”.
