NEBRC Achieves Cyber Essentials Self-Certification

Congratulations to The North East Business Resilience Centre, who announced this week that it has achieved Cyber Essentials Self-Certification, making it the first in the network of CRCs to gain this accreditation.

Cyber Essentials Certification is a Government-backed scheme that helps an organisation protect themselves from a range of the most common cyber attacks. Completing the certification offers peace of mind to the organisation that they are adequately secure against common forms of cyber crime, which is essential given the rise in cyber attacks during the coronavirus crisis.

When a business is compromised by cyber criminals, it becomes a much easier target for subsequent attacks, which is why educating staff and establishing strong cyber security practices is essential, no matter how big or small the organisation.

Superintendent Rebecca Chapman, Director of NEBRC said:

‘This is a big milestone for the NEBRC: we are extremely proud to have achieved our own Cyber Essentials Self-Assessment Certification. Having gone through the application process ourselves, we wanted to validate that we fully understand what IASME are looking for and why, as well as demonstrating to our customers and partners that are working in a safe and secure manner.’
