Leading managed IT service provider, Tarragon Solutions Ltd are delighted to announce their successful certification to Cyber Essentials. Gaining Cyber Essentials, a Government backed scheme is a simple yet effective way for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security.
With cyber threats increasing in both volume and sophistication, Cyber Essentials demonstrates that a business has introduced proven cyber security controls that help protect against a range of the most common internet based cyber threats.
Pete Foreman, Managing Director of Tarragon Solutions advised, “Implementing proven cyber security controls, is important to our business. Gaining Cyber Essentials was important to demonstrate to our current and future clients that we take security seriously. We’re delighted our investment has paid off.”
Tarragon Solutions achieved the certification with the support of Unity Metrix Ltd, an IASME Consortium licensed Certification Body. Vince Picton, Unity Metrix CEO, stated, “It’s been a pleasure to work in close partnership with Tarragon Solutions. Their proactive approach to cyber security is highly commendable. These days, cyber threats can target vulnerabilities just as much as they target specific organisations. In that regard, no business is immune from this modern-day threat.”
The certification has been awarded through the National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber Essentials Partner, the IASME Consortium. Dr Emma Philpott, CEO of the IASME Consortium said, “We’re delighted for Tarragon Solutions and I congratulate them for recognising the key role cyber security plays in any organisation. This certification is also a true demonstration to their clients that Tarragon Solutions has considered the importance of their customers’ security as much as their own.”
The UK Government recognise the challenge from the current cyber threat and have the ambition to tackle it head on. Cyber Essentials is very much part of the National Cyber Security Strategy and through gaining the certification, Tarragon Solutions is making an important and valuable contribution towards the Government’s aim of making the UK the safest place to do business online.
