MMX Communications Services Limited has been awarded the Cyber Essential Scheme (CES) Accreditation.

A primary objective of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy is to make the UK a safer place to conduct business online. All suppliers must be compliant with Cyber Essentials controls if bidding for government contracts which involve handling of sensitive and personal information and provision of certain technical products and services.

Cyber Essential Scheme

To achieve this, CREST was engaged by CESG, the information security arm of GCHQ, to develop an assessment framework to support the Government’s “Cyber Essentials” scheme, which forms a key deliverable of this strategy.

MMX achieving CES accreditation also provides a step towards gaining ISO 27001 during 2017 and when awarded will complement MMX’s existing suite of ISO accreditations.

MMX takes Cyber Crime seriously and continues to work diligently to ensure the integrity of our systems are not compromised. The UK Government has recently highlighted the need for companies to act and the steps taken by MMX provides confidence to our customers in our ability to protect our data and information.
