DWB Media is officially Cyber Essentials certified

We’re pleased to say that as part of our Cyber Security initiatives, DWB Media has become Cyber Essentials certified. Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses to protect themselves against the ever-growing threat of cyber attacks.

It has two basic functions:

  • to provide a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate cyber security risks; and
  • to provide a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to their customers, investors and other stakeholders that they’ve put these controls in place.

In brief, Cyber Essentials is all about helping businesses address the basics of cybersecurity to prevent common attacks, like ransomware and data breaches. Anyone can download the Cyber Essentials documents and start putting the recommended controls in place.

What does it mean to be Cyber Essentials certified? 

DWB Media Certification of the Cyber Essentials Scheme

By displaying our Cyber Essentials badge, we’re letting you know that:

  • We’ve put meaures in place to protect our own orgainsation
  • We take cyber security seriously and meet a Government-endorsed standard
  • We can bid for Government contracts (Cyber Essentials has been mandatory for suppliers of some Government contracts since 2014 and the requirement is being extended).

You can do it too 

We believe every company should take security seriously, so we encourage you to review (and implement) the Cyber Essentials requirements and even apply for certification.

If you need help understanding or implementing any of these controls, let us know and we’ll give you a hand.
