Asset Guardian Solutions Limited (AGSL) is pleased to announce it has successfully achieved compliance with the requirements of the UK government Cyber Essentials scheme, supported by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). The Scheme sets out five fundamental security controls to protect organisations from the most common cyber threats.
The accreditation will allow AGSL to demonstrate its continuous commitment to Cyber Security and compliance, whilst ensuring that all the relevant steps continue to be taken to secure the company’s IT infrastructure against cyber-attacks.
“We are delighted to announce that we have achieved Cyber Essentials certification within our scheduled timescales. This gives our clients peace of mind that Asset Guardian takes Cyber Security seriously and is dedicated to achieving the highest levels, both in our products and our core business activities. It is through the hard work and dedication of everyone at Asset Guardian, especially the members of our Cyber Security Team that we have achieved this important step.”
Ewan McAllister, Managing Director at Asset Guardian Solutions Limited.
The steps taken to achieve the Cyber Essentials Certification is part of the company’s roadmap to achieving ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation. ISO/IEC 27001 provides the requirements for an information management system (ISMS), and by implementing such a framework, AGSL will be able to demonstrate a set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks such as cyber security attacks, data leaks, or theft of data.
