We are thrilled to announce that Wanstor Limited has been formally approved as a Certification Body to IASME, a cyber security business dedicated to keeping everyone safer online both at home and at work.

IASME helped to write and is now responsible for the delivery of Cyber Essentials, the UK Government’s simple but effective certification scheme. Being a Certified Body of IASME means we are now licenced to deliver Cyber Essentials assessments on their behalf.

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective scheme that will help to protect businesses against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.

"Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes," says Stephen Austin, Head of Security and Network Operations at Wanstor. "The vast majority are basic in nature and can easily be mitigated if the right checks and balances are in place. We would encourage all businesses to have Cyber Essentials in place, and it was the right strategic move for Wanstor to become a Certification Body to aid in this process."

Francesca Lukes, Commercial Director, said: "Being accredited to Cyber Essentials isn’t a complicated process, but if your IT team, like most, are busy running day-to-day projects it can easily end up being put on a wish list, leaving you at risk. As we are a Certified Body we understand what’s required to quickly identify vulnerabilities and help put remedial actions in place to ensure that your Cyber Essentials certification process is smooth. We also provide a fully managed post-certification security service, for ongoing peace of mind."
