GBE Converge achieve Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

GBE Converge is dedicated to maintaining a high level of cybersecurity and ensuring we protect customers and users personal and financial information from hackers.

We are, therefore, proud to announce we have recently achieved the Cyber Essentials Plus Certification. Cyber Essential is a scheme which is supported by industry and backed by the Government. It is designed to help organisations to protect themselves from many commonly-seen online threats to security and to make conducting business over the internet safer within the UK.

Having worked in conjunction with the IASME (Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises) consortium and the ISF (Information Security Forum), the Government has developed the Cyber Essentials Scheme which awards organisations with badges to acknowledge their participation.

Cyber Essentials certification is a key step towards achieving GDPR compliance, as it provides clear evidence that a company has made the effort to protect their business and data from any cyberattack.

It is also a thorough and impartial validation of your organisations present security exposure giving those who work with GBE Converge greater assurance.

In order to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus, GBE Converge underwent additional Independent Testing requiring an on-site technical assessment. This was in addition to a self-assessment questionnaire and external vulnerability scan.
