Following independent verification of our Cybersecurity, Fairfield Control Systems have received Cyber Essentials Plus Certification.
Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme that helps to protect organisations against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks. Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. Cyber Essentials is designed to prevent these attacks.
Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but this time the verification of your cyber security is carried out independently by a Certification Body.
Cyber Essentials specifies the requirements under five technical control themes:
- secure configuration
- user access control
- malware protection
- patch management
