Midland Telecom have just been awarded the “Cyber Essentials Plus.” Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security. In conjunction with our GDPR compliance we have taken our cyber security a step further to ensure our customers data is safe.
What is Cyber Essentials Plus, and why would a telecommunications company require this?
Cyber Essentials Plus is a UK government information assurance scheme operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) that requires systems to be independently tested by a CREST accredited body. As your telecom provider is required to hold important information in order to fulfil its customer obligations it’s essential that this information is kept safe.
How Does Cyber Essentials Plus help your organisation?
This Government backed scheme, will help protect your organisation against all potential cyber attacks. Cyber attacks come in many forms, but the large majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals.
