The certification renewal proves ITHealth’s dedication to maximising cyber security for itself and its clients
ITHealth is delighted to announce that it has successfully renewed its Cyber Essentials Plus certification for the third year running.
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme that demonstrates an organisation’s ability to protect themselves from cyber threats and prevent cyber-attacks.
There are two levels of certification: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus, with Cyber Essentials Plus being the more rigorous level of accreditation involving a hands-on technical verification and assessment from independent, third-party professionals.
Overall, the Cyber Essentials Plus certification assesses five key security controls which are proven to reduce the risk of a cyber-attack when in place comprising boundary firewalls and internet gateway, secure configuration, access control, malware protection and patch management.
Successfully renewing its Cyber Essentials Plus certification for the whole organisation proves ITHealth’s dedication and commitment to maximising its own cyber security and the security of its NHS customers.
Brett Draper, Managing Director at ITHealth said:
“The renewal of our Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation reflects ITHealth’s continued commitment to cyber security and data safeguarding. It provides assurance to our NHS customers that we practise what we preach and can be trusted to help them achieve the same standards to stay protected from cyber threats.”
