Cyber Essentials Accreditation: putting our customers' data first
In 2018 Computer Imprintable label systems (CILS) was awarded Cyber Essentials Accreditation, which is a UK Government-backed, industry supported scheme established to protect organisations against common cyber-attacks.
We are pleased to announce that we have once again received our Cyber Essentials accreditation.
What does this mean for our customers?
Our customers have complete peace of mind that their account information and the data they provide us to print on their labels, is protected and secure at all times. We are fully committed to maintaining the highest standards of data and information security.
CILS Managing Director Oliver Stockton commented:
We are proud to hold this certification and understand its importance to our customers. As a manufacturer and supplier within many Government supply chains, it is essential to safeguard and protect all of our customers’ data.
All Government suppliers must now be compliant with the new Cyber Essentials controls if bidding for new contracts which involves handling of sensitive and personal information and provision of certain technical products and services.
To receive this accreditation we undergo a detailed risk assessment of our data protection and to ensure we are adequately protecting our business against common cyber threats."
