Opus can help you to achieve cyber security compliance
Cyber security compliance is at the forefront for midmarket and enterprise level organisations. Often achieved in addition to ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System), the Cyber Essentials certifications are backed by the UK Government and are now a requirement of many tenders and frameworks.
The two types of Cyber Essentials certifications for organisations
There are two types of Cyber Essentials certification. Cyber Essentials and the Cyber Essentials Plus, completed once Cyber Essentials has been achieved. The Plus is comprehensive cyber security certification, and fully assessed by our team of accredited assessors.
The areas covered with Cyber Essentials control framework
Cyber Essentials Plus requirements are built on achieving five cyber security controls to helps mitigate cyber-attacks including malware, ransomware and phishing, identifying known/unknown vulnerabilities and more.
FIREWALLS AND ROUTERS Securing your Internet connection
SECURE CONFIGURATION Securing all your company devices, applications and software
ACCESS CONTROL Control access to your data and services
MALWARE PROTECTION Protection against viruses and other malware
SOFTWARE UPDATES Keeping your devices and software up to date
Why do organisations strive to achieve the ISO27001 and Cyber Essentials certifications?
There is some overlap between ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials Plus. Achieved together, they demonstrate high compliance levels and commitment to cyber security for your organisation but this is also reflected to current and prospective clients.
Whilst ISO 27001 is formed of 114 security controls that encompass people, process and technology and is much more comprehensive than Cyber Essentials Plus. These controls are complimented by the 5 security controls of Cyber Essentials Plus and many of our clients strive to achieve both at the same time.
