Cyber Essentials PLUS
Databarracks was the first commercial organisation in the UK to achieve the higher level of certification against the Cyber Essentials Scheme.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a Government-backed standard, developed by CREST, which provides businesses of all sizes with actionable advice and best practice to raise their minimum security controls to a good standard.
The scheme combines technical controls from a range of well-established standards such as the ISO/IEC 27000 series, the Information Security Forum's Standard of Good Practice for Information Security and the Standard for Information Assurance for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.
Accreditation can be achieved either through a combination of self-assessment and external review, or through a more rigorous series of tests carried out by an external certifying body for the Cyber Essentials PLUS certification.
