Cyber Essentials is a UK government-driven initiative to promote a standard in cyber security practices across all industries and sectors. To obtain accreditation 2CV undertook an independent audit which assessed its preparedness for a cyber attack.
“This award certifies that we have invested (and continue to invest) in processes and procedures to protect against cybersecurity threats. And this in turn protects the data of our staff, clients, respondents and anyone else whose data we process.” said Dan Christmas, Head of IT and Data Protection.
With increasing cyber security threats, the accreditation reflects how seriously 2CV take data security.
