Monday, 13 March 2017
PISYS.NET HIGHLAND BECOMES THE FIRST COMPANY IN THE HIGHLANDS TO BE AWARDED THE ADVANCED PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION FOR CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS Highland is delighted to announce that its Technical Director, Stuart Mundy, is now an Advanced Practitioner for the Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certifications. Pisys is the only company in the Highlands able to advise on Cyber Essentials Plus and able to carry out the required vulnerability testing to ensure the controls are in place and working.

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats (Implementation) and through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions (Certification).

As an Advanced Practitioner, Stuart will be able to prepare clients for the Cyber Essentials Plus tests with the use of industry-standard tools. The tests are broken down into five key areas and the accreditation equips Stuart to harden the clients’ IT infrastructure and processes against common direct attacks from the internet.

Stuart Mundy commented, ’’The accreditation means I can facilitate the process of assessment and certification quickly and more effectively than other companies who do not have this award. This means it is a much more efficient way, both in time and money,for clients to achieve their Cyber Essentials accreditation.’’
