We take seriously the protection of the data we use on all our systems and internet-connected devices. With strong good practice policies, and through achieving Cyber Essentials certification, we have strengthened our ICT defence against Cyber Attacks, therefore demonstrating our commitment to Cyber Security and protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data we use.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security — particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:
- hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
- phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
- password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords
