Inchcape Fleet Solutions demonstrates robust cyber security standards
Launched in early June 2014, the Cyber Essentials scheme provides verifiable certification of firms’ robust cyber security standards and is required by the UK government for contracts that include the handling of certain sensitive and personal information.
The IFS assessment was conducted by IT Governance, with certification awarded by CREST, which was engaged by CESG, the information security arm of GCHQ, to develop and deliver an effective independent technical assessment of the controls outlined in the Cyber Essentials Scheme. Adoption of these controls is estimated to address over 80% of current cyber threats, and is intended to make the UK a safer place to conduct business online.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “I am delighted to congratulate Inchcape Fleet Solutions on their successful certification. By attaining the Cyber Essentials badge we hope it demonstrates to IFS clients that they have a robust standard of cyber security in place for minimising attacks and safeguarding client data.”
IFS adds the accolade to its existing ISO27001 certification for Information Security Management Systems as well as ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications for Quality Management and Environmental Management Systems.
