Sereno achieves Cyber Essentials Plus certification
The certification demonstrates that the company’s policies and procedures are strong enough to protect against cyber threats. CE+ requires independent verification by an external auditor who conducts a series of technical assessments to ensure the company is protected against various attack scenarios. The evaluation assessed:
- Boundary firewalls
- Secure asset configuration
- Patch management
- User access controls
- Malware protection
- Mobile assets
IASME, an independent certifying body for the Cyber Essentials programme, awarded the certification, renewable every 12 months. In total, around 1000 digital assets were in the scope of the evaluation.
Elizabeth Procopio, Director, Sereno, said: “Cyber-attacks are a daily risk in today’s world, and these attacks are also becoming more sophisticated. The Cyber Essentials Plus certification demonstrates that we have robust procedures and protections in place and show our partners that we take the security of their information seriously and have taken the necessary steps to reduce cyber threats.
Michael Johnson, Director at Sereno IT Support: “Cyber Essentials Plus is an excellent achievement for our company and shows our partners our commitment and credibility to help them be more cyber secure. This is a great steppingstone for our imminent ISO 27001 certification.”
