This October is Cyber Security month, promoting awareness of security online for individuals as well as businesses. In recent years, the threat online has continued to grow and in recent months we have seen major online businesses Facebook and Google suffer huge data breaches.
According to a recent report from the World Economic Forum, cyber attacks are likely to be third highest cause of global disruption in the next fives years, as individuals and technologies become more knowledgeable and advanced in what they’re doing. It’s therefore as important as ever that individuals and businesses increase their awareness of the online security and the potential risks and pitfalls of been careless online.
We’re aware of the potential threat of cyber security, therefore we invested heavily in our IT framework in order to protect both our candidates and business clients data within our systems. We also hold a Cyber Essential Certificate so you can be confident when working with Prestige. As well as this we have ensure that all of our IT systems across each of our offices and on-site facilities across Yorkshire and the UK have regular security audits to identify potential threats and are as robust and secure as they can be to prevent future incidents.
Our internal policies regarding IT usage are strict, and we want to assure you that we review this on a regular basis.
The Cyber Essentials Certificate is in place to ensure we as a business maintain the highest possible standards when it comes to cyber security, being aware of potential internal and external threats to our systems and understanding the processes and measures required to be fully secure.
