Carl F Groupco has achieved certification from Cyber Essentials, a Government-backed scheme aimed at protecting organisations against a range of common cyber attacks.
MD John Crittenden explained: “Every business takes steps to ensure the security of its physical premises. By seeking Cyber Essentials accreditation we’re taking the same approach to our virtual assets.”
Government research shows that in the last 12 months, 39% of UK businesses identified a cyber attack. Where the attack had a financial consequence, the average estimated cost was £4,200.
John added: “The figures make for sobering reading, which is why we’ve taken the steps we have. We now know we are protected against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. My thanks go to every member of the team who worked hard to show how we meet all the requirements of the scheme.”
