We are pleased to announce that we have now been recertified to Cyber Essentials Plus, having renewed our Cyber Essentials in October of last year. Our certificates can be viewed here.

We take Cyber Security very seriously and have robust and tested measures in place to ensure we protect information assets belonging to AFD and our stake holders. It’s becoming more and more important to have not just cyber security, but information security at the very core of all business processes. Information comes in many forms, and by having a robust, well-functioning system in place, and by anticipating potential information security threats, we can reduce the likelihood of any data breaches, and protect our information assets.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is an effective, Government backed scheme that will help us to protect our organisation, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

What is Cyber Essentials Plus?

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections we need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.
