We are pleased to demonstrate to clients and third parties that we take data privacy and security very seriously. Over recent years we have further invested into the technology we use, we are proud to let you know that Jones Harris is now Cyber Essentials certified.
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber attacks and provides a clear statement of the basic controls organisations should have in place to protect them.
Gaining Cyber Essentials certification enables organisations to showcase their credentials as trustworthy and secure when it comes to cyber security.
Cyber Essentials Certified
The certification defines a focused set of controls which provide clear guidance on basic cyber security for organisations of all sizes, and offers a sound foundation of cyber security measures that all types of organisations can implement at a low cost.
Cyber Essentials certification indicates that your organisation takes a proactive stance against malicious cyber attacks. In addition, it offers a mechanism to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that you have taken the minimum yet essential precautions to protect your organisation against cyber threats. The National Cyber Security Centre states that undertaking the Cyber Essentials certification process and implementing even one of the five controls required by Cyber Essentials can protect businesses from around 80% of attacks.
The Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017* indicated that over 46% of UK businesses suffered a cyber attack in the past 12 months, so it’s extremely important that your organisation has the necessary precautions in place to protect itself when – rather than if – it is attacked.
