OCM are Cyber Essentials certified!

Posted 06 Dec 2017

OCM are certified with Cyber Essentials, a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that protects OCM against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks (for more information please see https://www.cyberessentials.ncsc.gov.uk/).

The government has worked with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) consortium and the Information Security Forum (ISF) to develop Cyber Essentials, a set of basic technical controls for organisations to use.

It is backed by industry including the Federation of Small Businesses, the CBI and a number of insurance organisations which are offering incentives for businesses.

The Cyber Essentials Requirements document sets out the necessary technical controls. The Assurance Framework shows how the independent assurance process works and the different levels of assessment organisations can apply for to achieve the badges. It also contains guidance for security professionals carrying out the assessments.
