NICVA makes history with Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

Incoming GDPR regulations which come into effect in May 2018 will still be applicable despite impending Brexit processes, and the Cyber Essentials scheme is a great first step to securing against loss, theft or unauthorised access to any personal data. The ICO could potentially issue fines of up to 4% of global turnover, and Cyber Essentials can be shown as evidence that basic steps have been carried out to protect your business from loss or attack.

NICVA has also become part of the CiSP initiative, a government and industry partnership which includes a secure virtual ‘collaboration environment’ where partners can exchange information on threats and vulnerabilities in real time. We would urge you to join and become part of the cyber crime awareness community.
