Inchcape Fleet Solutions has received a certificate for the new government Cyber Essentials initiative, illustrating its ability to handle IT security threats.
The initiative, which was established in June of last year, awards companies with certification for high IT security standards. The law requires that that the certificates are present for any contracts that feature the handling of particular personal and sensitive data.
IT Governance carried out the IFS evaluation, with the certificate provided by CREST, and engaged by CESG (GCHQ’s information security arm), to provide a technical evaluation of all controls highlighted in the Cyber Essentials project. Employing the controls in the scheme is expected to deal with 80% of IT security threats. Its aim is to make it safer for UK businesses to operate online.
IT Governance executive chairman and founder Alan Calder said:
“I am delighted to congratulate Inchcape Fleet Solutions on their successful certification. By attaining the Cyber Essentials badge we hope it demonstrates to IFS clients that they have a robust standard of cyber security in place for minimising attacks and safeguarding client data.”
UK firms need to do all they can to improve IT security in the current climate. With so many cyber security issues in recent years, it has become imperative for businesses to fill IT security jobs. The government is taking steps to help them, but companies need to ensure they go that extra mile if they wish to maintain their customers’ trust.
