We are pleased to announce that we have passed Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This is the higher level of certification under the Cyber Essentials Government backed scheme that is also endorsed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
Obtaining certification required an in-depth test of our network, systems and policies by an external assessor, including attempting to run multiple threats to see how our systems responded. After successfully completing the independent assessment, we can have even greater confidence in the safety of our data and systems. Cyber-attacks are a prevalent threat that come in a variety of shapes and sizes. With this certification, Cornerstone has shown our security processes are robust, ensuring our readiness to tackle the threat of common cyber-attacks.
Martyn Lamb, our Director of Performance and Transformation, said:
“We’re thrilled to be awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Cyber security breaches are increasing, so the potential for data loss and financial damage is very real. By having this certification we’ve shown that we are taking steps to protect our users’ data and to be prepared for any eventuality.”
Cyber Essentials Plus is a trusted accreditation that proves Cornerstone is committed to cybersecurity. Our network of mortgage & protection advisers is continually growing and so, it is of the utmost importance that we can offer peace of mind to you and your clients, so that you can feel safe when conducting business online.
