Pentest People are proud to announce another recently achieved certification that will help them deliver more innovative services and help keep their customers secure.

Pentest People are now a Cyber Essentials Certifying Body.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government led and industry-backed scheme that helps organisations protect themselves against common cyber-security threats by assessing the implementation of five security focussed technical controls.

These are:

  1. Use a firewall to secure your Internet connection
  2. Choose the most secure settings for your devices and software
  3. Control who has access to your data and services
  4. Protect yourself from viruses and other malware
  5. Keep your devices and software up to date

Pentest People are a Cyber Essentials Certifying Body and can perform and accredit you to both stages of Cyber Essentials.

As well as the certification, Pentest People can also offer consultancy services including a GAP analysis against the 5 technical controls to ensure that you have adequate controls in place before you undertake a paid assessment.
