OASIS Group are pleased to announce that we have been formally certified to the UK Government supported Cyber Essentials scheme. While we have held the standard level for Cyber Essentials for several years, we can now confirm that we have completed all requirements for the Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
As mentioned above the Cyber Essentials scheme is separated into two different tiers. Firstly, the self-assessment tier ‘Cyber Essentials’, and then a more in-depth tier called ‘Cyber Essentials Plus’. Cyber Essentials Plus requires an independent assessment which includes a hands-on technical survey and verification of an organisation’s processes and policies. The scheme was created to protect organisations against the most common cyber attacks and for them to be able to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is based upon 5 main cornerstones of cyber security:
- Secure your internet connection.
- Secure your devices and software.
- Control access to your data and services.
- Protect against viruses and other malware. Keep your devices and software up to date.
Cyber Essentials provides our clients, partners and Team Members with the confidence that our processes and operations are compliant to the highest standards. This also goes hand in hand with the international standard for Information Security Management ISO/IEC 27001, to which OASIS Group are both compliant and certified.
