After passing the initial Cyber Essentials Basic assessment at the end of last year, the team have now undergone rigorous on-site testing from an independent security company to ensure that we are complying to the highest levels of Cyber Security. The external assessors were particularly impressed with the existing standards set by the team, and that the assessment was passed on the first attempt, which is very rare. We are now one of the first public sector organisations in the country to hold the certification and are 2 years ahead of the requirement for all NHS organisations to be certified by 2021.
As well as providing assurance to our service users and business partners, this is also a requirement for being able to bid for government contracts that involve handling sensitive and personal information or the provision of certain technical products and services.
