At EvaluAgent protecting our systems against cyber attacks and ensuring our platform is always available has been a top priority from the very first day.
With this in mind we are proud to announce that we have recently been awarded the Government-backed Cyber Essentials accreditation.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy and provides an independent assessment of the essential security controls that organisations must have in place to mitigate risks from internet-borne threats.
It addresses the five key controls that when implemented correctly prevent around 80% of all cyber attacks:
Secure configuration, Boundary firewalls and Internet gateways, Access controls and administrative privilege management, Patch management and Malware protection.
We are happy to report that we passed with flying colours; an acknowledgement that all our processes adhere to best practice. As a result, you can rest assured that in the event of a cyber attack, we have the policies and procedures in place to ensure any data is safe and our platform continues to deliver near perfect uptime.
Developed as a collaboration between the UK government and the very best cyber security professionals in the UK, the Cyber Essentials accreditation is now universally recognised as a sign of an organisation’s commitment to quality and excellence. In addition, achieving this accreditation also sets EvaluAgent firmly on the road toward additional important compliance such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation and ISO 27001.
Craig Lumley, EvaluAgent’s Technical Director, summed up the news, “It’s good to know that all our cyber-security ducks are in a line! Since day one, we have always taken all the steps necessary to ensure we have the processes in place to safeguard any data and our platform maintains near perfect uptime.”
