We're pleased to announce that our team has achieved Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certification for a third year running.
Cyber Essentials Plus is the highest level of certification awarded by the Cyber Essentials scheme. It shows that we’ve passed an information security and cyber threat audit conducted on our processes and systems by external cyber security experts.
While we’re delighted to have achieved Cyber Essentials Plus certification, it’s only one part of making sure that our systems and professional practice are as watertight as possible against today’s ever-increasing risks of doing business online. We’ve also secured accreditation from FSQS and we’re currently working towards ISO 27001 accreditation (scheduled for assessment in Autumn 2022).
The Financial Services Qualification System provides a cohesive and collaborative platform for managing supplier compliance assurance information. It provides finance companies with a fast and efficient system for assessing suppliers, therefore cutting out a lot of red tape.
We’ve gained this key accreditation through our ongoing commitment to excellent security and compliance, and the process has also enhanced the professional development of our team. We completed a rigorous audit process, meeting standards across several areas.
The bottom line is that financial institutions know they can trust us as a provider. Having achieved the FSQS benchmark for potential partners we can approach them knowing that we can deliver the extra assurance they need and make it easier for good, safe business to happen.
We’re extremely proud to have reached these milestones with FSQS and Cyber Essentials Plus. Our dedication to ongoing professional development, both as individuals and as an agency, is vital in providing our clients with an exemplary service that operates at the cutting edge—digital evolves and so must we.
