A security scheme to protect organisations from common cyber-attacks.
Hemel Hempstead, UK, 15 August 2017.
Netcall is a leading software provider of end-to-end patient and customer engagement solutions in the UK. In July 2017 Netcall successfully accredited to the Cyber Essential Plus “CE+”. This is a UK government-backed information security scheme designed to bolster awareness and help protect organisations against common cyber-attacks. The national significance upon cyber defences corresponds with a growing prerequisite for service providers to comply with such standards. Possessing CE+ demonstrates Netcall’s ability to securely build commercial relationships ensuring the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) of any sensitive data being processed.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme
The scheme is set up by GCHQ and CREST. It follows consultation with the British Standards Institution and the Information Security Forum, as well as businesses and professional bodies. It will annually audit Netcall's internal and external IT infrastructure by an independent CREST approved Qualified Security Assessor, so as to identify and reduce potential risks posed from threat actors with varying technical capabilities. This provides greater confidence to Netcall, their respective customers and partners within a constantly changing threat landscape.
The view from Netcall
Mark Ive is the Operations Director at Netcall. He says: “Our security and that of our customer’s is important to us. Our accreditation shows that Netcall continues to strengthen its commitment towards Information Security. This is the latest addition to complement Netcall's existing ISO27001:2013, PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider and highest level NHS Information Governance Toolkit.”
