Agenda Screening Services achieves Cyber Essentials certification with IT Governance’s DIY solution

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, September 16, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security expertise and CREST-accredited certification body, is delighted to congratulate Agenda Screening Services on achieving certification to the Cyber Essentials scheme for the second year running.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “Congratulations to Agenda Screening Services for achieving certification to the scheme on two consecutive years. This proves that the organisation takes cyber security seriously and assures their clients that their data is in safe hands.”

The Cyber Essentials scheme is designed to provide organisations of all sizes and in all sectors with a baseline of cyber security. By achieving certification to the scheme, organisations establish cyber hygiene, ensuring protection from the most common cyber threats.

Chris Withers, the head of screening and IT at Agenda Screening Services, said: “Although we have ISO 27001 we have found that Cyber Essentials still adds value to our cyber security controls. This is our second year achieving Cyber Essentials certification and we have seen the growth of Cyber Essentials as a prerequisite for doing business with our customers.

“The CyberComply Portal from IT Governance makes the Cyber Essentials certification process straight forward and hassle free.”

Organisations applying for Cyber Essentials certification from IT Governance can benefit from access to CyberComply. The portal helps organisations define the scope for certification, complete and submit the mandatory self-assessment questionnaire, schedule external vulnerability scans, receive feedback on the scan results and apply for the Cyber Essentials certification.

"The online application process is designed to help our clients save time and money by equipping them with a quick and user-friendly way to achieve Cyber Essentials certification. In addition to guidance and support, users can schedule scans and site visits, making the process easy and pain-free,” Alan Calder said.
