Cyber-attacks are rising. Cybercrime is up 600% due to the COVID-19 pandemic, says PurpleSec. IBM estimates the global average cost of a data breach to be $3.86 million. Despite this, only 16% of executives say their organisations are well prepared to deal with cyber risk (McKinsey & Co).
With this in mind, the UK specialist in electronic and computing technology, Captec, is delighted to announce the attainment of Cyber Essentials Plus certification, awarded by IASME auditors.
Max Toti, Captec CEO, commented, “Cyber security is now as serious as any other threat. To protect not only itself but its customers, Captec has implemented the latest cyber security across the business to attain this vital piece of certification.”
Steve Morton, Captec ITC Manager, said, “Cyber security has never been more important, especially as work environments continue to adapt. This award has followed a substantial amount of work behind the scenes, and I look forward to maintaining this standard in the coming years.”
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber attacks, and provides a clear statement of the five basic controls organisations should have in place to protect themselves.
