NorthPort Gains Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials helps guard organisations against cyber attack

NorthPort Technologies is delighted to announce its completion of the Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that helps to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

Cyber Essentials represents a baseline level of security that all organisations should aim to meet. The scheme focuses on five technical controls:

  • Secure configuration
  • Boundary firewalls and Internet gateways
  • Access control and administrative privilege management
  • Patch management
  • Malware Protection

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.

If you are interested in gaining either certification, please get in touch and we'll be happy to guide you through the process.
