Last week, our IT department secured Venn Group’s Cyber Essential status. For those of you who aren’t aware; Cyber Essentials is not only incredibly important to a company internally, but it is also vital for our external candidates and clients.
Cyber Essentials main objective is to make sure that the whole of the UK is a safer place to conduct business online. As one of the top suppliers of government contracts, we are now complaint to Cyber Essential controls which involve handling personal and sensitive data.
Gareth Hillary, our Head of IT, says that Cyber Essentials is ‘…a series of control points and includes penetration testing to the exterior network defences. I am delighted to say we passed the certification after much hard work to ensure that Venn Group upholds high cyber security standards.’
Since we now have this Cyber Essential status, we can now protect your data against the most common form of basic cyber-attacks on the internet, giving you peace of mind when it comes to your privacy.
