Transmission specialist Xtrac have recently been awarded certification against the UK Government backed Cyber Essentials standard. Cyber Essentials is a Government backed scheme that will help protect an organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks. It demonstrates to our customers and our supply chain that Xtrac have considered security controls and are working in a safe and secure environment.
Neil Randon, CIO at Xtrac said “It was important for us to reassure our customers and partners that we are serious about cyber security and that their technical and business data is safe with us and we felt that Cyber Essentials was the ideal first level to achieve.”
Through the controls put in place to achieve Cyber Essentials, Xtrac were able to quickly support the lockdown and home-working demands of recent months.
Randon added “We now have a clear picture of our cyber security level and will continue to improve our security posture as the global threat levels grow”.
