Osborne Morris & Morgan recertified with Cyber Essentials award
We are proud to announce that we have received Cyber Essentials recertification – demonstrating to all of our clients that we take cyber security seriously.
Cyber Essentials is a Government approved scheme designed to help protect organisations from the threat of most common cyber-attacks.
A Government survey found that almost 50% of businesses and charities haven’t implemented the government’s five basic security practices from Cyber Essentials.
The five key security practices, include maintaining firewalls, running anti-virus software and introducing IT admin rights to specific users.
To obtain accreditation, organisations must demonstrate that they are using all five of the security practices.
At Osborne Morris & Morgan, we continuously work on implementing and managing controls so that we are protected against cyber attacks.
Paul Lockhart, Practice Manager at Osborne Morris & Morgan, said:
“It’s fantastic that for the second year running we have obtained this accreditation and it is testament to how seriously we take cyber security at Osborne Morris & Morgan. Openness, trust and transparency are core to fighting the threat of cybercrime and we welcome schemes such as Cyber Essentials, which help give clarity and assurance to our clients and employees. We would like to thank MIRUS IT for the support.”
We were first awarded last year- in readiness for the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, which came into effect on 25th May 2018.
