As businesses continue to evolve and adapt to a more flexible way of working in a digital space, whether this may be employees working from home or out on the road, Waldeck are committed to ensuring our IT infrastructure is robust and secure, to keep our own data, and that of our clients, secure.
Why Cyber Essentials Plus?
By having Cyber Essentials Plus certification, our clients can rest assured that cyber security is taken seriously at Waldeck and has met the standard as defined by Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). Clients can work with us having the knowledge that any data they share with us is protected and that we have policies and procedures in place to ensure cyber security.
To obtain the qualification, we were assessed on areas of our IT infrastructure such as:
- Password policies
- Access rights
- Cyber policies and procedures
- Data control
Head of IT / IS, Chris Hill, shares:
“I am pleased to share that once again the security that Waldeck have put in place has been tested against the Government standard and have been found to meet all the controls needed to protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks and have obtained the Cyber Essentials certification, and now this year, have attained the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, which involves third-party technical verification to confirm.
“Cyber Security is incredibly important to our business and that of our clients, who work within highly regulated and sensitive sectors such as nuclear, MoD and rail.
“Congratulations to the team.”
