2020 has been a year of rapid change for many businesses, with previously office-based workforces swiftly presented with laptops and systems shifted into the cloud to facilitate business continuity remotely.
Unfortunately, this created an increase in cyber security risks; where many had never worked from home, they were unfamiliar with basic security practices such as password managers. Worse still, for many there were organisational weaknesses due to the speed with which entire servers were uploaded to the cloud, leading to a surge in cyber attacks.
It is more important than ever for businesses to ensure they are going back to basics with security and have all the tools in place to keep their teams cyber secure, which is why InfoSec People are delighted to have once again successfully renewed our Cyber Essentials accreditation.
We have always offered flexible and remote working opportunities to our team and cyber security has always been of the utmost importance to us. We also understand the value and peace of mind our security brings to our clients and candidates, ensuring we can focus our attention on finding the perfect candidates for every role.
Cyber Essentials is a government backed programme which helps businesses to secure themselves against the most common cyber threats. Not only does it protect us here at InfoSec, but it also demonstrates to people working with us how seriously we take their security, for complete peace of mind.
