Trichromic has proudly achieved the Cyber Essentials certification.

 

The standard is part of the UK Government's National Cyber Security Strategy and demonstrates our commitment to cyber security, our ability to safeguard our own systems, the hosting services we deliver to clients, and it reinforces our capabilities as a managed services provider.

Launched in 2014, the Cyber Essentials scheme focuses on promoting the essential security controls that organisations need to have in place in order to reduce the risk posed by threats on the Internet. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly according to the government, could prevent around 80% of cyber attacks:

  1. Boundary firewalls and Internet gateways
  2. Secure configuration
  3. Access control
  4. Malware protection
  5. Patch Management

Trichromic was awarded the security certification after meeting the standards of an independent CREST-accredited assessor against all five security controls. Achieving certification also helps in addressing compliance requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which requires that organisations should implement appropriate technical controls to ensure the security of personal data.
