SEA achieves new cyber accreditation
SEA has been awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation by certifying body IASME, clearing the way for the company to bid for government work.
The accreditation is now mandatory for government contracts. In order to achieve the certification, SEA was required to implement five key controls to demonstrate to customers its effectiveness in countering any potential cyber attack.
These controls included secure configuration; boundary firewalls and internet gateways; access control; patch management and malware protection. When properly implemented these five basic controls help protect against internet based attackers using capabilities freely available on the internet.
SEA was supported by the cyber essentials services of its sister company MASS for the certification process.
James Clelford, IT service delivery manager, SEA, said: ‘Having passed the cyber essentials self-assessment, we were keen to undertake the more thorough, independent checks required to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus. To pass this certification shows our ongoing commitment to ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our own and our customers’ information.’
