Intelogy gains Cyber Essentials Certification 2019

Intelogy has gained the Cyber Essentials certification in 2019, awarded from the National Cyber Security Centre, part of the Government communication headquarters. 

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

Cyber Essentials focuses on: 

  • Using a firewall to secure your internet connection 
  • Choosing the most secure settings for your devices and software 
  • Controlling who has access to your data and services 
  • Protecting yourself from viruses and other malware 
  • Keeping your devices and software up to date 

At Intelogy, we appreciate the need and importance to stay protected in a cloud-based modern workplace. Users need to be able to access data and company resources wherever they are, and that increases the exposure to cyber threats against identities and data.
