The introduction of the GDPR and the UK’s corresponding Data Protection Act legislation in 2018 gave many businesses an incentive to improve their cyber security measures. Even so, at the end of 2019, 46% of UK businesses reported that they had suffered at least one cyber-attack or actual data breach during the previous 12 months. Of this 46%, 39% experienced disruption to their business and 19% lost money and/or data.
It’s against this background of increasing cyber-attacks that IASME Consortium was chosen earlier this year to partner with the National Cyber Security Centre and take full responsibility for the Cyber Essentials scheme that they helped create in 2014.
This government-backed initiative provides annual certification as evidence that individual businesses are taking cyber security seriously and have the necessary protections in place.
We’re delighted to say that both Restore Records Management and Restore Datashred have not only met the exacting standards of Cyber Essentials but also passed a technical audit by an external assessor, which means both businesses have achieved the top-tier Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
What does Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation mean for you? It means we have made sure our systems are proofed against the vast majority of cyber-attacks so you can rest easy in the knowledge that your data is in safe hands – whether it’s in storage or at the end of its shelf life.
