We are now Cyber Essentials Certified!

As part of our ongoing commitment to cyber security, we are very pleased to announce that Andromeda Solutions are now Cyber Essentials certified.

We are very proud of our team for continuously working to improve the security of our IT infrastructure.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is Government-backed, fully supported by the IT industry, and run by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSE). The Cyber Essentials Scheme is part of the Government’s National Security Strategy, aiming to reduce to amount of cyber attacks on organisations in the UK by over 80%. The scheme helps businesses put security controls in place to help protect them from the most common cyber-attacks. A cyber security breach can be truly devastating on both a personal and professional level, emphasising the importance of protecting IT systems and services from cyber criminals.

In order to pass the Government-led initiative, Andromeda Solutions were required to complete a Cyber Essentials questionnaire, meeting the technical control requirements for the following 5 areas:

  • Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways
  • Secure Configuration
  • User Access Control
  • Malware Protection
  • Patch Management

The Cyber Essentials certification provides Andromeda Solutions with external, independent assurance that we have the correct and necessary measures in place to help protect us against cyber threats.
