Cogora has successfully obtained the prestigious Cyber Essentials certification, solidifying our commitment to maintaining robust cybersecurity practices and safeguarding sensitive information.

Cyber Essentials certification

The Cyber Essentials certification, issued by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), is a globally recognised standard for organisations that strive to bolster their defence against online threats and protect their systems from cyberattacks. It verifies that a company has implemented essential security measures to defend against the most prevalent cyber threats.

After rigorous assessment and evaluation of our internal systems, policies, and procedures, we demonstrated our adherence to the strict criteria set forth by the certification process. The comprehensive evaluation examined various aspects, including boundary firewalls, secure configuration, access control, patch management, and malware protection.

This achievement showcases our unwavering dedication to ensuring the utmost security for client and community confidential data. The certification serves as an assurance to customers and partners that we have adopted best practices to mitigate the risks associated with cyber threats.

John Pettifor, Cogora’s CEO, explains, ‘Obtaining the Cyber Essentials certification reflects our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of cybersecurity. It is our priority to protect the data and trust of our clients, and this achievement is a testament to the tireless efforts of our team.’

As cyberattacks continue to escalate in complexity and frequency, achieving this certification positions Cogora as a trusted partner capable of fortifying digital infrastructure against potential vulnerabilities.

Many agencies and organisations require their suppliers and partners to hold the Cyber Essentials certification, ensuring that their systems remain protected against cyber threats. By adhering to these internationally recognised standards, we solidify our commitment to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
