With a new year comes the certification of the crucial Cyber Essentials Plus award from the National Cyber Security Centre, helping Amillan demonstrate its commitment to cybersecurity.
Holding this certification shows Amillan’s renewed commitment to protecting against common cyber threats for its customers and will ensure a greater level of care and consideration. Also a key contributor to the ISO27001 information security standard, the certification becomes an essential aspect of this accreditation.
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber-attacks. The scheme identifies fundamental security controls that organisations should have in place to secure themselves against common cyber threats.
According to the UK Government, 80% of cyber-attacks could be prevented if organisations put simple cybersecurity controls in place.
A simple virus or piece of malware could result in loss of company and client data, disrupt cash flow and take up staff time. An attack could also put off customers, stop you trading and damage your hard-earned reputation. Loss of data could breach the Data Protection Act and lead to fines or prosecution.
Amillan Managing Director Phil Jordan had this to say:
“Achieving the Cyber Essentials Security Plus certification shows the importance we place on Cybersecurity here at Amillan for ourselves and for our customers. It’s an essential consideration in the ever-growing digital landscape and holding the award recognises this. We look forward to using this certification with our services to remain at the forefront of Communications Technology”

About Cyber Essentials
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.
Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.
