This certificate confirms that we met the Cyber Essentials implementation profile and that our ICT defences were assessed against commodity based cyber-attack.
In line with the UK National Cyber Security Strategy, Ballard Chalmers’ certification shows our dedication to compliance with Government-backed and industry-supported cybersecurity standards. To achieve certification, we were required to demonstrate adherence to best practice against the five basic security controls defined by the scheme.
This certification shows our defences have been checked against the majority of common cyber-attacks and that our technical controls are in good shape.
