Exertis has gained Cyber Essentials PLUS certification for its professional services division, an independently verified self-assessment which assesses a company against five basic security controls. In addition, it has completed IASME governance which demonstrates that a company has prepared for the introduction of GDPR by focusing on how data is collected, maintained and protected.
Technical Services Director Ian Gilbey, said: “Cyber Essentials PLUS provides independent assurance that you have the proper protections in place to help prevent the vast majority of cyberattacks. That provides our resellers with confidence to use our range of white label support services for their customers. With the deadline approaching for the GDPR to come into force, we need to ensure that we have taken the necessary measures to comply with the regulations.”
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyberattacks. Exertis professional services already holds ISO27001 accreditation – the international standard for information security.
The distie provides a full range of professional services which resellers can white label designed to equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to service and support their own customers. These include straightforward ‘break-fx’ through to a 24/7/365 complete managed service that also provides pro-active, vendor agnostic monitor and incident response services.
