The problem

This data processing company wanted to obtain Cyber Essentials certification to improve client confidence and also put their own minds at rest about the security of the data they hold. The company wanted an audit of their current system state so they could be advised what steps needed to be taken to remedy any issues. They consulted nTrust to undertake the audit, complete remedial work and also to complete the Cyber Essentials certification.

How we helped

nTrust went to site and completed an audit of their entire IT estate. We then made recommendations for items that needed to be enhanced or replaced prior to Cyber Essentials certification, These included:

  • Network hardening and provision of guest wireless
  • Automated software patches including third party applications such as Acrobat Reader and Java
  • Improvements to file system security

Once these improvements were in place and existing policies had been refined we then completed the Cyber Essentials certification process on behalf of the business.

The benefits to the business

The business is now confident in their data security and as a result of obtaining the Cyber Essentials certification they now have Cyber Insurance. Government contracts now require all suppliers to be compliant with Cyber Essentials controls, the company are now eligible to bid for these contracts, expanding their prospective customer base.
