Our assessor said “it is rare that an organisations achieve Cyber Essentials Plus on their first assessment”.
Charlie Collins (our managing director) said:
I’m so proud of the entire team that have worked towards achieving Cyber Essentials Pluswhich is no mean feet for a small business like ours, but it goes to show how seriously we take data protection and cyber security. Whilst this has always been the case, since I founded the business in 2002, it’s great to be able to provide customers with the confidence to work with us, now that we have the certification. I would especially like to thank, Nick, Sam and Simon, who are our system administrators. I would like to say thanks to Simon (Hightrees Organisation) who look after all our internal infrastructure (including our VoIP phone system for all his help
He went on to say that this puts The Childcare on-line Booking (CoB) System head and shoulders above our competitors as we are the only wrap around childcare booking system that has this assurance and we are about to complete our IASME certification too, which means we take data protection serious and IASME is one of just five companies appointed as Accreditation Bodies for assessing and certifying against the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme. The Scheme focuses on the five most important technical security controls. These controls were identified by the government as those that, if they had been in place, would have stopped the majority of the successful cyber attacks over the last few years.
