Codapay is officially Cyber Essentials certified
As part of our ongoing commitment to cybersecurity, we’re proud to announce that we’re certified by the government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme. We’re dedicated to maintaining the utmost level of security for customers using Codapay, and our latest accreditation supports our existing commitments.
In this article, we cover what this badge of cybersecurity best practise means for Codapay.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is an effective cybersecurity assessment that businesses can undertake to add an extra level of protection against cyberattacks. It addresses the most common online threats that can cause breaches and damage to computer networks.
Prevention is key when it comes to avoiding such incidents, boosting defences by finding vulnerabilities before attackers. As this vigilance inhibits the business from being marked as an easy target for common attacks, a Cyber Essentials accreditation can also prevent more complex attacks. This is because attackers will seek out targets without any security measures in place.
The self-assessment and externally certified Cyber Essentials application covers the following topics:
- Secure configuration
- Firewalls and routers
- Access controls
- Software updates
- Malware protection
What does this mean for Codapay?
We’re Cyber Essentials certified by IASME Consortium, the National Cyber Security Centre’s Partner (certificate number: IASME-CE-010785). To achieve this, an independent assessor verified and approved our application based on a comprehensive self-assessment of current cybersecurity practises.
Our certificate means new and existing clients can rest assured that we’re working hard to keep our IT secure against the ever-growing threat of cyberattacks. It also means we have a clear picture of our level of security and can continually monitor this to ensure Codapay and our clients are protected.
