Kingdom awarded Cyber Essentials Certification

Cyber-Essentials-Badge-(High-Res)Kingdom is very pleased to have been awarded the certification in Cyber Essentials. This accreditation helps to protect organisations against cyber-attack, guarding against the most common cyber threats and at the same time allowing them to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that is designed to help protect businesses of all sizes and in all sectors against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks. The government worked with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) consortium and the Information Security Forum (ISF) to develop the scheme, and it is backed by industry, including the Federation of Small Businesses, the CBI, and several insurance organisations.

The principle behind the scheme is that the vast majority of cyber-attacks are very basic in nature and are carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. As the Cyber Essentials website says, “they’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.” Getting certified in cyber essentials shows that businesses like Kingdom have taken the necessary steps to prevent these types of attacks. The scheme is described as “simple but effective” and shows businesses how to address the basics and prevent the most common attacks. By gaining this qualification, it gives us and our clients peace of mind that our defences will protect against the vast majority of cyber-attacks.

Kingdom’s Cyber Essentials Certification is just one of the many awards and accreditations that we have that demonstrate our "commitment to quality" (C2Q). As part of this, we embrace five key components: Safety, Health, Environment, Service and Outcomes. As a supplier to brand focused customers, our investment and dedication to quality and safety is taken extremely seriously, and as part of this we regularly access experts in our field.
