Electus Recruitment has been successful in renewing our Cyber Essentials Certification. This means we are now protected against common cyber threats, we can bid for Government contracts, and most importantly, it shows our clients and candidates that we take cyber security seriously and that our data is tightly secure.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security — particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:
hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords
The Cyber Essentials scheme helps organisations to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data
