REIDsteel has achieved Cyber Essentials certification for its robust IT processes and safeguarding of sensitive data.

Cyber Essentials is a government backed and industry supported scheme to help businesses and organisations put best practice cybersecurity measures in place.

According to latest figures published in April by the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology, just three per cent of business and charities report adhering to Cyber Essentials.

Nick Wright, REIDsteel Head of IT, said: “Applying for Cyber Essentials certification was an ideal opportunity to have a fresh look at our security processes and security settings.

“I am very pleased that, with a very few minor modifications in process, we were able to achieve the certification.  Our aim will be continued improvements throughout the year with the aim of achieving the Cyber Essentials Plus next year.”

Cyber Essentials certification demonstrates our commitment to IT excellence for our customers, staff, suppliers and business associates.

It will also open up the path to new business and contracts which involve handling sensitive information or the provision of certain products and services.
