The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a HM Government-backed and industry supported initiative to guide businesses in protecting themselves against cyber threats.

The scheme has been developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and is not just applicable to companies in the private sector, but also to universities, charities, and public sector organisations.

Cyber Essentials provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security.

Dr Richard Martin, Tascomi Managing Director, commented: “We are proud to have achieved Cyber Essentials certification as it demonstrates to our customers that we continue to take cyber security seriously. We have taken essential precautions regarding cyber threats and our customers can be assured that our cloud-based software solutions have been assessed to the highest level of security standards that this Government-backed scheme provides.”

Tascomi software solutions for Local Government departments are available now on the Government procurement framework G-Cloud 9.
