Cyber Security

Universal Security Systems Ltd achieves Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation.

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-led scheme that was originally launched in 2014 as an assessment strategy to accompany the NCSC standards (National Cyber Security Centre).

Cyber Essentials Plus takes the mandate from the Cyber Essentials certification and includes an active assessment that was conducted on Universal’s premises. The Cyber Essentials Plus assessment required that Universal Security Systems have Cyber Essentials certification first and then undergo several specific tests, which further validated Universal Security Systems protection against the following five Cyber Security control categories:

  • External Vulnerability Assessment
  • Internal Patch Audit
  • Review of Malware Protection
  • Email-based Malware Assessment
  • Web-based Malware Assessment

Universal Security Systems were required to demonstrate their commitment to cybersecurity through these recognised and government-backed standards which are often required in tender and public sector contracts.

By obtaining Cyber Essentials Plus Certification we can provide assurances to our customers and stakeholders that Universal Security Systems operate to the highest levels of cyber security. Please see our Certificate of Compliance in the link below.

The Certificate below certifies that Universal Security Systems has been assessed as meeting the Cyber Essentials implementation profile [BIS/14/696/1.5] which proves that at the time of testing, Universal Security Systems were assessed as being protected against the risk of cyber-attack.

It is also possible for our customers to verify our Cyber Essentials certification through the NCSC website, therefore providing an additional layer of authenticity to our certification.
