FuseMetrix achieves Cyber Essentials certification with IT Governance's solution

14th November 2018

IT Governance, the cyber security consultancy firm and CREST-accredited certification body, is pleased to congratulate FuseMetrix, a fully integrated cloud-based business system, on achieving certification to the UK Government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “I’m pleased to congratulate the FuseMetrix Group on meeting the five key controls of the scheme and getting the Cyber Essentials certification. The certification, which recognises organisations that have taken appropriate steps to protect against most common cyber threats, provides FuseMetrix Group’s clients, partners and stakeholders with the assurance that the organisation took all necessary measures to prevent future threats.”

The Cyber Essentials scheme is designed to help organisations set out a baseline of cyber security, which can then be proven by a verified self-assessment questionnaire and (if using a CREST-accredited certification body) an external vulnerability scan of Internet-facing networks and applications.

“The Cyber Essentials scheme helped us progress and achieve the right to supply services to the UK government’s G-Cloud 10 Digital Marketplace.

“The G-Cloud framework supports SMEs in bidding to supply cloud-based services to the entire public sector and charities.

“Any public sector organisation can obtain services via G-Cloud’s procurement framework without going out to tender. It increases efficiency by providing a one-stop shop for recommended vendors,” commented Matthew Ballinger, Managing Director of FuseMetrix Group.

Organisations wishing to set out a baseline of cyber security and achieve certification to the Cyber Essentials scheme can opt for any of the three IT Governance developed packages – ‘Do It Yourself’, ‘Get A Little Help’ or ‘Get A Lot Of Help’. Each packaged solution provides different levels of support to suit any organisation’s needs.
