Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses, like G2 Speech, protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber attacks.
Developed and operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Cyber Essentials is considered the best first step to a more secure network, ensuring protection from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches. Cyber Essentials Plus goes one step further with rigorous testing by an external, hands-on, cyber security expert. It is a robust set of tests on an organisation’s cyber security systems – checking that we are protected against hacking and phishing attacks.
The Cyber Essentials Plus Certification demonstrates G2 Speech’s commitment to cyber security and safeguarding our business operations. Providing our customers and partners with confidence in our solutions.
G2 Speech is delighted to announce that we recently achieved certification to Cyber Essentials Plus, the higher level qualification forming part of the UK Government-backed Cyber Essentials Scheme. In order to achieve certification to Cyber Essentials Plus, a third party hands-on technical verification was conducted to ensure G2 Speech fully met the requirements of five basic control areas (access control, secure configuration, software updates, malware protection and firewalls and routers). This technical assessment was conducted by the certification body URM Consulting Services and involved a thorough vulnerability scan.
Bas Jansen, COO at G2 Speech said: “Cyber security has never been higher on our agenda. We’re very pleased to have gained our Cyber Essentials Plus Certification. We are committed to providing the most secure and robust solutions to our customers and partners. This certification helps to demonstrate this commitment – through independent vulnerability testing and to test the awareness of information security across our teams. We’re very pleased with the support and expertise provided by URM.”
URM’s assessor commented that, “What stood out with G2 Speech is the amount of control they have over their IT environment. The restriction on which software can be installed is crucial to the overall security of the infrastructure. It can be challenging to keep up with all the operating system, application and firmware updates, but G2 Speech is exemplary on how it manages the process.”
