IT Governance, the cyber security consultancy firm and CREST-accredited certification body, has helped visualisation and automation software technology company ICONICS achieve certification to Cyber Essentials Plus. Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says: “I am pleased to congratulate ICONICS UK on achieving its Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Successful certification to the scheme is evidence that the company has taken the necessary cyber security measure and demonstrates commitment to preventing cyber attacks.”
Milesh Patel, the director of solutions at ICONICS UK, said: “ICONICS applied for Cyber Essentials Plus as it was a requirement for the work we do with UK Government departments. It provides validation that the security measures that we have put in place to look after our customer’s data are effective and robust.” Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed cyber security scheme that sets out the minimum standard for cyber security. It provides a set of controls and implementation guidance for basic cyber hygiene against which organisations can achieve certification.
“The process of certification through IT Governance was straight-forward with really helpful contacts right from initial consultation with Zak Rush through to the final certification. The process was completed quickly and very cost effectively and we had great help from Alex Drabek, our on-site assessor. The CyberComply website makes filling in and tracking the process simple,” Milesh Patel continued.
The West Midlands-based ICONICS team successfully achieved certification to Cyber Essentials Plus on 4 July 2016 using IT Governance’s Cyber Essentials Plus – Do It Yourself packaged solution. This package is designed to give organisations full control over their certification in a transparent and cost-effective manner. Organisations can apply for the Cyber Essentials Plus certification by using IT Governance’s unique online platform – CyberComply. The platform helps organisations review the requirements for certification, get guidance on defining the scope of certification, complete the self-assessment questionnaire, get interim feedback, schedule required external vulnerability scans, receive online guidance throughout the application process and the certification service upon successful pass.
