Surely achieves Cyber Essentials certification

Surely is pleased to announce that we have now achieved our Cyber Essentials certification and are able to display the Cyber Essentials badge on our website.

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme run by the National Cyber Security Centre (part of GCHQ), and it helps to guard against the most common cyber threats & demonstrates commitment to security. The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security, particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:

  • hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
  • phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
  • password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords
