Strengthening Cybersecurity Excellence: Matrix Awarded Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate 

GOV access THUMB 1

A Government backed scheme, the Cyber Essentials Plus certification is an industry standard awarded to organisations that demonstrate robust cybersecurity practices. It is designed to protect against a wide range of common cyber threats, both internal and external, that could potentially compromise an organisation’s data integrity and confidentiality. The certification is awarded following a rigorous assessment conducted by independent cybersecurity experts who verify the implementation of stringent security measures and adherence to best practices. 

What is the Cyber Essentials Plus certification? 

In a hybrid work model, employees can access company data from home offices, coffee shops or even while travelling. The endless possibilities of work environments increases the potential risk of unauthorised access to sensitive data.  

Yet, it is essential that employees are afforded the freedom to collaborate, sharing files and accessing information without compromising sensitive data. Therefore, investing in the right resources is key. 

With the introduction of the new Data Protection & Digital Information (DPDI) bill, organisations must adopt a more proactive approach if they are looking to avoid substantial penalties. This presents an opportunity to implement robust compliance measures for hybrid working, providing better protection business-wide.  

Why cybersecurity matters in today’s digital landscape 

Businesses are increasingly reliant on technology to conduct operations. This digital shift brings with it unprecedented opportunities for growth and innovation, but it also exposes organisations to evolving cyber threats. Hackers are becoming more sophisticated, constantly devising new methods and using new technologies, such as generative AI, to exploit vulnerabilities and compromise sensitive data.  

In this landscape, cyber attacks can lead to severe consequences, including financial losses, damage to brand reputation, and potential legal liabilities. For businesses seeking to build and maintain trust with their customers, cybersecurity is not only a necessity but an integral part of their corporate responsibility.
