Cyber Essentials certification for J & E Hall

J & E Hall is pleased to announce that is has successfully achieved certification for the UK government’s Cyber Essentials programme. 

Launched by the UK Government in June 2014, the Cyber Essentials scheme is a cyber security standard that organisations can be assessed and certified against. The scheme is designed to improve the resilience of UK businesses to common cyber security threats.

The UK government now requires suppliers bidding for some contracts that include the handling of certain sensitive information to have successfully achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

Annette Batley, IT Manager says “the assessment focuses on the level of controls in place that help to protect us from common cyber-attacks. We take our cyber security very seriously so are pleased to have gained the certification".
