Rivertrace Now Certified with Cyber Essentials for 2024

Rivertrace Now Certified with Cyber Essentials for 2024


by Paul Hopkins

We are pleased to announce that our Cyber Essentials Certification has been renewed for another year after passing all the necessary requirements.

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a Cyber Security certification programme developed by the UK government to help organisations, both in the public and private sectors, protect themselves against common cyber-attacks.

It was launched in 2014 as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Strategy and is designed to encourage good Cyber Security practices and raise the overall level of Cyber Security in the country.

The government mandates that any supplier bidding for contracts that involve managing specific sensitive and personal data must possess a valid Cyber Essentials certificate.

From a wider perspective having such high standards when it comes to cyber security allows customers to put their faith in us when it comes to how we handle and safely store their data electronically.

As touched upon, some of the larger UK companies and government owned organisations require companies to have these accreditations as a prerequisite to do business with them. Some of those companies are ones we are already dealing with which is one of the key reasons why we renewed the certification.

Well done to everyone involved in helping to attain it yet again.
