DCRS awarded Cyber Essentials Crest Certification


We are pleased to announce that we have passed our Cyber Essentials Assessment

By achieving this certification DCRS has demonstrated that we have addressed our cyber security compliance requirements and demonstrates commitment to information security, providing assurance to our clients and partners. This certification covers all offices throughout the UK.

Cyber Essentials

Initially launched in 2014, the government worked with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) consortium and the Information Security Forum (ISF) to develop Cyber Essentials, a set of technical controls to help organisations protect themselves against common online security threats.

Primarily focused on external threats, Cyber Essentials sets out a baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations in all sectors and has been developed in close consultation with multiple industries to provide businesses with clarity on good cyber practice.

The principal focus of the scheme is on the five most important technical security controls; when implemented correctly it can prevent around 80% of cyber attacks. These controls were identified by the Government and if they had been in place, would have stopped the majority of the successful cyber attacks over the last few years.


Five Key Points
