LANGSTONE, South Wales — 13th February 2024 — Leading Oracle Cloud and ServiceNow digital transformation consultancy, de Novo Solutions, has been awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. This accreditation reaffirms de Novo’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of cybersecurity and ensuring the utmost protection for its clients’ sensitive data.

Cyber Essentials, established by the National Cyber Security Centre, is a globally recognised certification, indicating that an organisation has implemented essential cybersecurity controls to protect against common cyber threats. This accreditation involves a rigorous assessment of an organisation’s IT infrastructure, covering areas such as firewalls, secure configuration, access control, malware protection, and patch management.

Its second-tier accreditation, Cyber Essentials Plus, requires a business to undergo a more extensive analysis of an organisation’s security measures. This includes comprehensive assessments such as a vulnerability scan and penetration testing by an independent approved third party. Achieving this accreditation offers additional assurance to customers, partners and suppliers that their systems and data are highly secure.

For de Novo’s clients, this advanced accreditation offers several key benefits:

  • Enhanced Security — Clients can have confidence that de Novo has implemented robust cybersecurity measures to protect their sensitive information from cyber threats.
  • Compliance Assurance — Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation demonstrates de Novo’s compliance with industry-recognised cybersecurity standards, providing assurance to clients and stakeholders.
  • Reduced Risk — By partnering with a Cyber Essentials Plus accredited organisation, clients can reduce their exposure to cyber risks and vulnerabilities, safeguarding their reputation and business continuity.
  • Peace of Mind — Clients can focus on their core business activities with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their cybersecurity needs are in capable hands.

As cyber threats continue to evolve and become increasingly sophisticated, cybersecurity remains a top priority for organisations across all industries. de Novo’s attainment of Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation reaffirms its commitment to staying ahead of emerging threats and ensuring the highest levels of protection for its clients.

Ian Carline, Chief Technology and Data Protection Officer of de Novo Solutions, confirmed: “This achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to cybersecurity excellence. By obtaining Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation, we are reinforcing our commitment to protecting our clients’ valuable data and ensuring the highest standards of security across our operations.
