Automated Intelligence has successfully retained its UK Government-backed certification demonstrating the most rigorous security practices for the third year running.  

Cyber Essentials PLUSis an award which demonstrates commitment to cybersecurity and involves thorough testing of our security practices by an independent Certification Body.  

Areas covered include User Access Control, Malware Protection and Firewalls.  

This year was particularly difficult due to the nature of the testing process. AI’s Security and Operations ManagerColin Flack, explains all: 

“Well, it wasn’t as straight-forward as normalUsually, the auditor comes in for a full day and runs extensive tests across the whole organisation, but obviously this year, that needed to be done remotely. I was working from home and so was the auditor!  

The process went on for a second day and we were at the mercy of technology but despite the challenges, we managed to, once again, demonstrate that data security is of the utmost importance to us.  

“We’re delighted that, with this award, we can assure organisations, whether that is customers or partners, that we have the tightest cybersecurity measures in place.”  

The UK Government requires all suppliers handling certain sensitive and personal information to be certified by the Cyber Essentials scheme.
