Open Awards working towards Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

This week is UK Cyber Week and we are super excited to announce that we are working towards the Cyber Essentials Plus Certification!

Our IT, MIS and Data manager, Denise Keogh, explains what this means and why we are taking Cyber Security so seriously....

"Open Awards recognises that robust cybersecurity practices are imperative for organisations to protect against relentless cyber threats. That's why we are diligently working in partnership with MRD Technologies to complete the rigorous process of attaining Cyber Essentials Plus certification. 

Cyber Essentials Plus is the highest level of certification available under the scheme. It ensures that organisations have effectively implemented essential security controls to safeguard against common cyber threats. Unlike the baseline Cyber Essentials certification, Cyber Essentials Plus involves a hands-on technical assessment by skilled security consultants. This assessment identifies vulnerabilities and provides a cost-effective way to enhance security measures. 

Open Awards’ pursuit of Cyber Essentials Plus demonstrates our unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of cybersecurity. By actively participating in this scheme, we contribute to raising awareness and promoting best practices across the industry."

We will keep you posted on our progress, so stay tuned.
