MVIS | Cyber Essentials rubber stamps commitment to cyber security and data protection
Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.
Cyber Essentials helps to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrates a company’s commitment to cyber security.
MVIS has recently achieved Cyber Essentials certification, implementing protocols and preventative methods to guard against cyber attacks.
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that helps protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks. This is important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark a company out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.
Certification gives a business peace of mind that its defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks, simply because these threats are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.
For MVIS, cyber essentials is another rubber stamp of quality, showcasing to its clients that cyber security and data protection is of paramount importance.
As a company already proudly accredited to Environmental Management, BS EN ISO 14001: 2015, Quality, BS EN ISO 9001:2015, and Health & Safety, BS EN ISO 45001: 2018, as well as Achilles Building Confidence accreditation and most recently, Constructionline Gold.
Cyber Essentials provides yet another safety net of working with MVIS, with customers able to soundly sleep at night knowing sensitive information is being treated with the appropriate level of security.
“A potential cyber attack doesn’t just affect us.” Said Anne Ashman, MVIS Group Commercial and Operations Director.
“Our customers rely on us to keep their information safe and secure, and with the scope of our contracts often including government/tier 1 contractors, we cannot be too careful when it comes to making sure that MVIS isn’t a target for some of these sinister threats online.
“Some government contracts require Cyber Essentials to be in place, and whilst currently that isn’t always the case for us, we’re positioning ourselves to be able to offer the complete package when it comes to digital security for any and every customer we work with.”
