Building on last years achievements, Somerford Associates have recently achieved the Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This step up from Cyber Essentials requires an independent assessment and vulnerability scan of your security controls to ensure organisations are meeting the correct standards.

Securing their IT against common Cyber threats and keeping cyber security measures in place and up-to-date is important to Somerford Associates. Now, they can provide evidence that they proactively manage their external threat vulnerability and put presentative measures in place to secure their systems. 

We have put a considerable amount of time and resource into ensuring we have relevant security measures in place to support our rapidly growing business. We are delighted that, as part of this process, we have gained the industry recognised Cyber Essentials Plus certification. The team have worked extremely hard to ensure that our security posture aligns to current regulation and provides the platform we require to continue to provide top quality service and support to our customers.

The recently introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), ensures organisations keep personal data safe and confidential. The Cyber Essentials Plus certification is of utmost importance to Somerford Associates in order to comply with GDPR.

As with everything at Somerford Associates we look to go the extra mile - whilst important for our customers we also feel that our security and governance should demonstrate our comprehensive understanding and commitment to information security. That's why having already achieved Cyber Essentials Certification we felt it was important to gain Cyber Essentials Plus Certification".
