Online fraud is a growing problem for all of us so we must remain vigilant and safeguard personal and financial information. There is a growing threat posed by scams as well as the growth in sophisticated online attacks such as data breaches and malware. At OMG Education CIC, we take this problem seriously and have systems in place to help protect us and ensure that the data we hold is confidential and secure.

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the National Cyber Security Centre Cyber Essentials accreditation.

What is the Cyber Essentials certification?

Cyber Essentials helps organisations guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrates their commitment to cyber security. It is a simple but effective, government-backed scheme that helps organisations, of whatever size, protect themselves against a whole range of cyber-attacks.

Getting the basics right is vitally important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as a target for more in-depth attention from cybercriminals and others.

Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets that do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks.
