As technology advances and the increased risk of cybercrime, Salt Separation Services now provides staff members with cyber security training that is CPD accredited and certified by the National Cyber Security Centre to help ensure that staff follow organisational procedures and risks are reduced as a result.
Cyber Essentials gives peace of mind that we are protected from the most common cyber threats simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place as well as having a hands-on technical verification that our systems will protect against the most common threats.
In order for us to achieve the accreditation, the IT infrastructure had to undergo testing to prove via technical verification that our systems are secure.
These tests included:
- E-mail and downloads tests – to confirm harmful content could not pass through to our IT systems and was effectively blocked by the security measures we have in place.
- Internal and external scans on our network to check for common vulnerabilities.
Salt Separation Services have maintained:
Cyber Essentials Basic since 2017
Cyber Essentials Plus since 2019
