by | Sep 5, 2018

With cyber crime on the rise, organisations need to take proactive measures to mitigate these threats. By implementing basic cyber security measures, all types of organisations can significantly reduce their vulnerability to cyber-attacks.

Smarter Business Group company Visionist Consulting recently renewed their Cyber Essentials accreditation. The company is proud to comply with all requirements of the Cyber Essentials Scheme.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government-backed scheme that helps organisations protect themselves against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks. It encourages organisations to adopt good information security practices. The certification process involves being assessed against five basic security controls chosen to help to protect against unskilled internet-based attackers. The five main technical controls are:

  • Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
  • Patch management
  • Secure configuration
  • Malware protection
  • Access control

Visionist’s commitment to cyber security represents their leadership in the technology field, as they continue to transform their clients’ digital capabilities, processes and people.
