IT Backbone renews Cyber Essentials accreditation


Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective Government-backed tool that organisations use to demonstrate their commitment to cyber security and protect them against the most common types of cyber security threats. IT Backbone has successfully renewed our Cyber Essentials certification, demonstrating our commitment to cyber security and its priority for us and our clients.

Tony Morrant, Technical Services Director at IT Backbone, says: “We are delighted to have renewed our Cyber Essentials accreditation. Cyber security protection is a business priority for both IT Backbone and our clients, and maintaining the Cyber Essentials accreditation demonstrates that. Cyber Essentials covers five key measures of protection that a business can put in place to protect themselves from cyber security threats, and these measures are ones which we implement for clients regularly.”

Here are the five key measures of protection that Cyber Essentials checks are in place:

  1. Use a firewall to secure your internet connection
  2. Choose the most secure settings for your devices and software
  3. Control who has access to your data and services
  4. Protect yourself from viruses and other malware
  5. Keep your devices and software up to date
