This certification validates that J&P’s systems have been assessed as providing effective measures to mitigate cyber threats. It demonstrates to customers that we take cyber security seriously and we have processes in place to protect their data. Some Government contracts now require Cyber Essentials certification.
The Cyber Essentials certifications aim to ensure businesses of all types and sizes understand, and can implement, the most fundamental IT security measures.
Implementing these measures will help to mitigate risk and keep infrastructure and data secure. The Cyber Essentials (CE) and Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) badges demonstrate that our business has implemented necessary security measures and taken appropriate steps towards minimising risk.
Launched in 2014 by the government’s National Cyber Security Centre, the Cyber Essentials scheme highlights the five basic cyber security controls that all businesses should be implementing:
- Secure connections to the internet
- Secure devices and configurations
- Controlled access to devices and data
- Protection from viruses and other malware
- Management of software patches and updates
