La Belle Forme is delighted to announce its certification under the Cyber Essentials Scheme.
The certificate was awarded as a result of an audit of all IT systems and services within La Belle Forme. Preparing for the audit took place over several months resulting in a complete overhaul of our IT equipment including the purchase of new PCs, Laptops and upgrades to all our software services.
What is the Cyber Essentials scheme?
The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a UK government-backed framework supported by the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre).
The scheme measures a number of security controls that help protect organisations against most cyber attacks.
The Cyber Essentials scheme is designed to help organisations show their commitment to cyber security.
Certification is a requirement for companies who work on contracts involving UK Government, many NGOs, public sector bodies and the NHS.
Launched in October 2016, the NCSC has headquarters in London and brought together expertise from CESG (the information assurance arm of GCHQ), the Centre for Cyber Assessment, CERT-UK, and the Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure.
The NCSC provides a single point of contact for SMEs, larger organisations, government agencies, the general public and departments. We also work collaboratively with other law enforcement, defence, the UK’s intelligence and security agencies and international partners.
