We understand the risks associated with cyber security and the need for robust security systems, policies, and processes to protect our own and our customer operations.

AFD has invested in the UK Government backed scheme: Cyber Essentials.

Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They are the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it is unlocked. 

Being certified for Cyber Essentials is designed to prevent these attacks.
