Fourtify Cyber Security achieves Certification Body status for Cyber Essentials Plus

We are excited to announce that Fourtify Cyber Security has officially achieved Certification Body status for Cyber Essentials Plus. This significant accomplishment reflects our unwavering dedication to advancing cyber security standards and providing our clients with robust protection against cyber threats.

What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus is an advanced certification within the Cyber Essentials scheme, a UK government-backed initiative designed to help organisations safeguard themselves against the most common cyber-attacks. Unlike Cyber Essentials certification, Cyber Essentials Plus involves a rigorous assessment, including hands-on technical verification of your environment, to ensure that critical cyber security controls are in place and functioning effectively.

What Does Certification Body status Mean?

As a Certification Body for Cyber Essentials Plus, Fourtify Cyber Security is now authorised to assess and certify organisations against the higher standards of the Cyber Essentials Plus framework. This status empowers us to deliver a comprehensive certification process, ensuring businesses can achieve and sustain UK government recognised security standards.  Our team of experts is ready to support clients through every phase of the certification journey, from initial assessment to final certification.

Benefits for Our Customers

  1. Enhanced Trust and Credibility

Clients can be assured that their cyber security measures meet stringent standards, which is crucial in today’s digital landscape where data breaches and cyber threats are prevalent.  Certification also reassures our clients customers that their data and interactions with their business is protected by verified and robust security measures, increasing customer confidence.

  1. Thorough Assessment and Verification

Cyber Essentials Plus involves an independent, hands-on technical audit to verify that the essential security controls are correctly implemented. This thorough assessment ensures that your organisation’s defences are not only in place but also effective against cyber threats.

  1. Improved Cyber Security Posture

With Fourtify’s expertise, businesses can significantly enhance their cyber security posture. The Cyber Essentials Plus certification process helps identify and rectify vulnerabilities, leading to enhanced cyber defences.

It showcases a higher level of commitment to cyber security, which can be a critical differentiator for customers and partners when choosing between vendors. This certification can unlock new business opportunities, especially in sectors where stringent security measures are mandatory.

  1. Reduced Cyber Insurance Premiums

Many insurers recognise Cyber Essentials Plus certification as a mark of excellence in cyber security practices and may offer reduced premiums for certified organisations. This not only strengthens security but also brings financial benefits.

Achieving Certification Body status for Cyber Essentials Plus is a testament to our dedication to excellence in cyber security. We are proud to be recognised with this status and play a key role in raising cyber security standards whilst supporting our clients in achieving their security objectives.
