Equilibrium become a Cyber Essentials Certification Body

Equilibrium is pleased to announce the achievement of becoming a Certification Body for Cyber Essentials and IASME Gold, however what does this mean to you?

Equilibrium Security, the cyber security experts based in the heart of the second city are extremely proud to announce that they have become a Certification Body for the government backed Cyber Essentials scheme. Equilibrium is in a unique position where they are one of only a handful of organisations that can both assess and certify in the Midlands region.

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed certification scheme that sets out a baseline for cyber security that is suitable for all organisations. The scheme’s five security controls can prevent “around 80% of cyber-attacks”. The certification is a valuable indicator that an organisation has taken the necessary measures to bolster cyber security and reduce the risk of a cyber-attack.

Why Cyber Essentials?

Equilibrium Security encourage all organisations to look at the Cyber Essentials certification requirements and to adopt them, as it is a good way of demonstrating to customers that a business is taking the necessary steps to protect their information.

Equilibrium Security is in the unique position as an IASME certification body where they can technically advise a business on how they can meet the Cyber Essentials certification standards but can also accredit a business with the official certification.

Thoughts from the experts

Anish Chauhan: Equilibrium Security’s Managing Director stated that he wanted to invest in becoming a certification body for Cyber Essentials as he really saw the merit of every business implementing the five core security controls. Anish likes the prescriptive nature of the Cyber Essentials standard, as it provides clear instructions of the steps a business need to take to mitigate cyber risks.

Dr Emma Philpott: IASME Consortium Ltd is excited for Equilibrium to become an IASME Certification Body, Equilibrium Security is in the position to certify companies to the additional governance certificate as well as the Cyber Essentials accreditation. Governance is widely seen as the step after Cyber Essentials and increasingly recognised in the supply chain”
