Hilditch Awarded Cyber Essentials Plus Accreditation
Following a rigorous assessment, The Hilditch Group has been awarded Cyber Essentials Plus, the higher of two government backed certifications to demonstrate IT security, protecting all information held within the business.
The Cyber Essentials Plus certification process comprises remote and on-site vulnerability testing, proving to be a far more rigorous assessment than required for the basic certification. An off-site external assessment looks for vulnerabilities within the scope of external threats, workstations on-site are examined along with mobile devices for protection, encryption and access, and other tests mean that completion of the assessment can be lengthy.
Holding this certification helps to prevent and minimise any potential cyber security breaches, and demonstrates to both vendors, buyers and business partners who work with Hilditch that the security of their information is taken extremely seriously.
The Cyber Essentials Plus certification is mandatory for government contracting and is a recognised symbol for safe businesses in the United Kingdom, providing reassurance to all clients working with Hilditch that their data is secure.
