As high-profile cyber attacks continue to attract significant and unwanted media attention for impacted businesses, Circyl has successfully received its Cyber Essentials accreditation to ensure protection from a wide variety of potential threats. 


The Government-backed scheme ensures an organisation has the security measures needed to identify and prevent incoming attacks, before they cause serious disruption and damage.

With this certification, clients can be rest assured that sensitive data records are safe and secure, and that the business has a clear understanding of their existing cyber security level.

Cyber Essentials compliance can also be a dealbreaker when it comes to attracting new clients and pitching for business contracts, particularly those related to the Government and Public Sector.

Jason Betteridge, Managing Director at Circyl, commented:

“As a business, we pride ourselves on being extremely cyber secure, ensuring the information and data we access is properly protected and out of reach to would-be hackers.

“Unfortunately, cyber criminals and attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, so it is important that all businesses conduct regular checks and tests, so they can be confident in the security measures they have in place.

“Achieving Cyber Essentials compliance is important to us, as it shows our clients that we take these issues very seriously and that we can be trusted to keep sensitive data records safe. The accreditation was audited by a third party assessor, which should further reassure our clients that the necessary security measures are in place and are effective in preventing attacks.

“Not only this, but the fact the scheme has been backed by Government means the accreditation acts as a seal of approval for new and existing customers, proving that we can guarantee the protection promised.

“As always, we will remain committed to upgrading and improving our security measures in the months and years ahead, so that we can stay ahead of the curve and defend against the evolving methods of cyber criminals.”
