Cyber Essentials Plus and IASME
The Childcare on-line Booking System Ltd and Ayrmer Software Ltd is in the process of getting the government-backed cyber security certification (Cyber Essentials Plus) and IASME (Information Assurance standard) that sets out a good baseline of cyber security and data protection for small and large businesses alike and gives clients confidence that we take the threats of cyber attacks and data protection seriously.
- Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security.
- IASME is an Information Assurance standard that is designed to be simple and affordable to help improve the cyber security of Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
As a business we work with a variety of clients that require high levels of security and assurances that data is secure and regularly help clients complete security and data protection questionnaires on their behalf and have successfully passed numerous Penetration Tests (Pen tests) to ensure our solutions protect business data from cyber threats like SQL injections, cross-site scripting (XSS)and other similar threats posed by cyber criminals.
We have always taken security and data protection seriously, so achieving Cyber Essentials Plus and IASME certification should be fairly simple, although IASME requires documentation of the various processes and procedures relating to data protection that we have partially completed to ensure the business complies with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force earlier this year .
Once completed, both certificates will enable our clients to have confident that we have their backs covered and while little will change in our approach, it confirms our commitment to keep their businesses save and their data secure from potential cyber threats, verified by independent experts.
