Cyber Essentials Plus

In the interconnected digital landscape of today, cybersecurity has become paramount for businesses of all sizes. With the ever-evolving threat landscape and increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, organisations must adopt robust security measures to protect their sensitive data and maintain the trust of their customers. Here at SRD Technology UK, we recognise the importance of cybersecurity and have achieved the prestigious Cyber Essentials Plus certification, allowing us to continue our commitment to safeguarding digital assets and customer information.


Cyber Essentials Plus is a government-backed scheme, designed to help organisations implement essential cybersecurity measures and guard against common cyber threats. Achieving Cyber Essentials Plus certification requires a rigorous assessment of an organisation's cybersecurity systems and practices by an independent certification body. It demonstrated that the certified organisation has implemented robust cybersecurity controls and has the capability to defend against a wide range of cyber threats.


The key elements of Cyber Essentials Plus audit include:

  • An assessor will pick a sample of computers at your organisation and perform an audit to ensure that the devices are configured as per the scheme

  • A vulnerability scan will be performed on these machines to confirm patching and basic configuration are at an acceptable level

  • An external port scan of your internet-facing IP address will be conducted to ensure no clear misconfiguration or vulnerabilities can be identified

  • A test will be conducted on your default email/internet browser to confirm how well configured they are to prevent the execution of fake malicious files

  • Screenshots will be taken as evidence that the system is Cyber Essentials compliant


SRD Technology UK's attainment of the Cyber Essentials Plus Certification underscores the proactive approach we have towards cybersecurity and our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of data protection. By undergoing the certification process, we believe we have demonstrated our commitment to securing our IT infrastructure, networks, and systems against potential cyber threats, thereby enhancing the resilience of our operations and ensuring the confidentially, integrity, and availability of our data.


One of the key benefits of Cyber Essentials Plus certification is its ability to instil confidence and trust among clients, partners, and stakeholders. In today's digital economy, where data breaches and cyber-attacks are increasingly common, customers are more discerning about the security practices of the companies they engage with. By obtaining a Cyber Essentials Plus certificate, here at SRD Technology UK, we are able to assure our clients that we have implemented robust cybersecurity measures to protect their sensitive information and mitigate cyber risks effectively.


In addition to enhancing our credibility and reputation, Cyber Essentials Plus certification equips us with the necessary tools and framework to continuously improve our cybersecurity posture. The certification process involves identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the organisation's IT systems and implementing remediation measures to address them effectively. By undergoing regular assessments and audits, we can stay ahead of emerging threats, adapt to evolving cybersecurity trends, and strengthen our overall cybersecurity resilience.
