Restore Datashred - Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

Protecting your data, right to the end.

Even so, 46% of UK businesses reported that they had suffered at least one cyber-attack or actual data breach last year. Of this number, 39% experienced disruption and 19% lost money and/or data – that’s nearly 1 in 10 businesses in the whole of the UK.

Behind the scenes, however, there are organisations taking action against these increasing cyber-attacks. Earlier in the year the National Cyber Security Centre chose the IASME Consortium to be their partner, and this consortium will take full responsibility for the Cyber Essentials scheme that was created in 2014.

What is Cyber Essentials? It’s a government-backed initiative that provides annual certification as evidence that individual businesses are taking cyber security seriously and have the necessary protections in place.

Here at Restore Datashred, we’re really pleased to announce that, along with sister business Restore Records Management, we’ve not only met the exacting standards of Cyber Essentials but also passed a technical audit by an external assessor. The result? Both businesses have achieved the top-tier Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

This certification means we have made sure our systems are proofed against the vast majority of cyber-attacks so you can rest easy knowing your data is in safe hands – right up to when it falls on to the sharp blades of our state-of-the-art shredding machine, that is.

If you would like to speak to someone about extra-secure end-of-life records disposal – and we do more than just shred paper – you can contact us via our website or call one of our friendly, well informed customer service team on 0800 376 4422.
