Invested in the cyber essentials programme

We understand that to deliver a successful security proposition to any organisation, it is necessary to go back to basics, starting with revisiting policies.

We have revisited our own security policies, making sure they reflect our business as it is now. This helped us understand what the biggest risks to our business are, and what needs to change for those risks to be uncontrolled; looking at our control systems and asking - are they too complex? do they really help or hinder our business? and then looking at the stuff we commit to doing every day – is it actually being done?

Patching, scanning for vulnerabilities, hardening our builds, segmenting our networks and introducing encryption or robust authentication has given us a strong baseline to adopt this way of working, to help our customers move on to the new things. As a result of this process, Computacenter has achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

The advantages of having this means:

  • Our customers have the reassurance that we work to keep their IT environment and data secure against cyber attacks
