ServiceSport is pleased to confirm that the company has passed its Cyber Essentials 2017 assessment.
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats.
The government 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 technical controls to help organisations protect themselves against common online security threats.
The full scheme, launched in June 2014, enables organisations to gain one of two Cyber Essentials badges. 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 government requires all suppliers bidding for contracts involving the handling of certain sensitive and personal information to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme and ServiceSport is proud to have achieved this accreditation.
