Cyber Essentials Certification
Lomond Wealth Management is delighted to announce that our organisation has now gained Cyber Essentials Certification.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cybersecurity. The scheme considers these threats to be:
- hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
- phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
- password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords
Regulation and in particular GDPR demands that we take appropriate measures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of any personal data we hold. The Cyber Essentials scheme helps to protect the data stored on devices which connect to the Internet.
Derek Fish, Director of Lomond Wealth Management, said “Gaining certification gives our clients peace of mind that our defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks.”
