Alexander & Co Achieve Cyber Essentials Certification

Published: 1 August 2019

Alexander & Co are proud to announce that we have been awarded with Cyber Essentials certification.

The Cyber Essentials scheme was launched in 2014 and is backed by the government.  The scheme was introduced as a method of helping businesses protect themselves against online threats.  In particular, the Cyber Essentials scheme addresses methods of protection against the common threats of hacking, phishing and password guessing.

At Alexander & Co we place great importance on cybersecurity.  We are aware of the high risk posed by cyberattacks and have therefore adopted a proactive approach to cybersecurity.  Our Cyber Essentials certification provides reassurance to our clients, suppliers, insurers and other bodies that we are working hard to secure data against cyberattack and that we are continually reviewing the safeguards that we have in place to protect our IT infrastructure.

With cyberattacks regularly hitting the news headlines it is imperative that businesses and other organisations continue to review their strategies for combatting the ongoing threat.
