activereach has successfully certified against the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme. Working with accreditation body IASME to achieve Cyber Essentials, the certification confirms activereach’s commitment to cyber security best practice and secures its position as a leading supplier of security solutions to the UK marketplace.
Developed by the UK Government as part of a broader initiative to raise cyber security awareness and protection in businesses of all sizes, Cyber Essentials provides a set of criteria against which organisations can measure the effectiveness of their cyber security systems. Achieving the certification demonstrates to customers that a business has taken basic and essential cyber security precautions.
Since 1 October 2014, Cyber Essentials became a minimum requirement for bidding for some government contracts that entail the handling of sensitive and personal data (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/procurement-policy-note-0914-cyber-essentials-scheme-certification)
The IASME Consortium is one of the four Cyber Essentials accreditation bodies appointed by the UK Government. activereach has performed a self-assessment against the five most important security controls and the information we provided has been verified by Baigent’s, one of the IASME certification bodies.
