John F Hunt Group Limited has just attained its Cyber Security Certificate, which means that all companies within the Group comply with the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Scheme. This project was led by TechVertu, an IT Support agency, part of the Group, which controls and oversees the IT requirements for the whole structure. The Grays-based company also offers comprehensive IT support, web design services to external clients.
“We hope this achievement will demonstrate our commitment to cyber security and show to our customers that we, as a Group, take this matter seriously”, says Hadi Marashy, TechVertu’s Managing Director.
Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme which helps to protect organisations against cyber attacks. The assessment focusses on some of the most important technical security controls identified by the government. Achieving this certification means that the security measures currently in place will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks. Since October 2014, it became a minimum requirement for bidding for some government contracts.
