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
