Exsel Group Achieve Cyber Essentials Certification

Exsel Group are delighted to have achieved Cyber Essentials Certification. Cyber Essentials is an industry supported certification scheme developed by the UK Government.

The certification scheme provides criteria for organisations to measure their cyber-security systems by measuring and implementing 5 key controls, that can prevent 80% of cyber attacks.

These 5 key controls are:

• Boundary firewalls and internet gateways – prevention of unauthorized access

• Secure configuration – ensures secure system configuration

• Access Control – ensures appropriate access to systems

• Malware protection – installation and maintenance of virus and malware protection

• Patch management – application of patches and ensuring the latest version of applications is used

"Cyber criminals don’t just attack banks and large companies - they target any organisation which isn’t properly protected, even small businesses - like yours." UK Government

Certification in Cyber Essentials instills confidence that an organisation is implementing an industry standard level of cyber security - and allows us to provide evidence to our customers that their assets and data is resilient against cyber threats.

The benefits of certification for Exsel Group as a business are:

  • Its Government Endorsed - Cyber Essentials is a UK Government endorsed scheme -so certification allows us to bid for government contracts
  • Trust - By displaying the certification badge on our website, we can demonstrate to our customers that our business has met government standards to ensure measures are in place for keeping our customers information secure.
  • It Meets Regulations - When the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements reach the UK, organisations can be fined from the EU 4% of their annual global turnover if they suffer from a breach. Cyber Essentials implementation will help organisations meet the requirements.
