Cyber Security Awareness Month may have dominated the headlines in October, but it remains an ongoing priority at Vapour HQ.
And the team is delighted to have secured Cyber Essentials certification – a government-backed scheme that evidences our deeply-engrained commitment to security, and our protection against cyber-attacks.
Independently assessed by the ISAME Consortium – a Cyber Essentials Partner – the accreditation hasn’t just encouraged the Vapour team to review and validate our cyber security protocol. It also now reassures our customers across public and private sectors – ranging from construction to education, and healthcare to professional services – that we take proactive steps to protect our cloud technology infrastructure from risk.
Commenting on the success, Vapour’s head of transformation and operations Carol McGrotty – who led the certification project – said: “A key part of being ‘cyber ready’ is never becoming complacent. It’s a mantra we share with our customers, so it’s important we live and breathe it too – not least because many attacks are a result of fairly unskilled hackers exploiting innocent human error.
“So, while we know we take cyber security extremely seriously throughout the Vapour team, the exercise to achieve certification provided a helpful ‘sense check’ that we’ve got all bases covered. It should also act as a further sign of confidence for our customers – large and small – that when you’re working with us, you’re in safe hands.”
