The Cyber Essentials scheme was developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme in close consultation with industry. It is designed to help businesses and organisations protect themselves against cyber-attacks.
The Catapult is delighted to have secured Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. Our entire IT infrastructure and systems (including those services out of the scope of the Cyber Essentials Plus) have been aligned to the scheme’s cyber defence recommendations and subjected to rigorous penetration testing conducted by an external certifying body.
The Cyber Essentials Plus Badge clearly demonstrates our commitment to this important business area. It is our intention to annually recertify against this baseline cyber security standard and further align our cyber security controls to those as recommended by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure.
