We are Cyber Essentials Plus certified!

We are delighted to announce that Capito is now Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) certified!

Cyber Essentials is a scheme developed by Government and industry to demonstrate that an organisation has the basic controls in place to mitigate the risk from common internet-based threats, within the context of the Government’s '10 Steps to Cyber Security'. 

Capito's MD Mark Gibson and Nico Grobler (Senior Systems Engineer) with our new Cyber Essentials Plus certificate.

Capito's Mark Logan (Microsoft Consultant) who prepared and collated the requirements for this assessment.

Capito originally achieved the basic Cyber Essentials certification in 2017, meaning that we demonstrated that we had taken these essential precautions, and that we met the necessary fundamental requirements for:

  • Firewalls
  • Secure configuration
  • User access control
  • Malware protection
  • Patch management

Cyber Essentials Plus is a more advanced level and our new CE+ Certificate certifies that Capito was assessed on-site by an independent certification body.  As of February 2020, it was determined that we meet the Cyber Essentials implementation profile [BIS/14/696/1.5] and thus that, at the time of testing, our ICT defences were assessed as satisfactory against commodity based cyber-attack.  

Our new Cyber Essentials Plus certification is not only another important step on our journey of continuous improvement, but also further demonstrates to our partners and clients that we take our own cyber security very seriously.  We offer a full end-to-end cyber security solution that helps safeguard our clients against online threats - so it is vital that we practice what we preach!
