ITHealth is delighted to have retained its Cyber Essential Plus (CE Plus) certification for yet another year, verifying its commitment to safeguarding systems and data against cyber threats and affirming its position as a trusted cyber security provider to the NHS.
Cyber Essentials Plus is the more rigorous level of accreditation in the Government backed scheme that helps organisations protect themselves against a range of the most common cyber-attacks.
Companies that are Cyber Essentials certified lower the risk of cyber-attack, and offer assurance to customers that sufficient security controls are in place to successfully reduce the risk of any breach on systems and data.
In order to attain the CE Plus certification, an independent certification body conducted a comprehensive examination across ITHealth systems and processes to inspect and verify its cyber security measures.
Overall, the certification assesses five key security controls which are proven to reduce the risk of a cyber-attack when in place:
- Internet connection security
- Devices and software security
- Controlled access to data and services
- Protection from viruses and malware
- Updating devices and software
Brett Draper, Managing Director at ITHealth, said:
“We’re thrilled to have successfully renewed our Cyber Essentials Plus certification. It only reinforces our commitment to our customers of reliability and exceptional service, and provides assurance of our dedication to protecting our NHS customers from potential cyber threats.”
