We are pleased to announce that Billington Holdings plc Group and its subsidiaries have reached a new milestone in cyber security by securing the coveted Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. This significant achievement follows a comprehensive assessment conducted by Claranet Cyber Security, affirming the organisation’s adherence to elevated cyber security standards.
The accreditation marks a pivotal step in fortifying the group’s cyber security infrastructure and follows on from receiving our Cyber Essentials Accreditation in October.
Billington Holdings prioritises secure operations for several reasons integral to its core values. Maintaining the utmost confidentiality and integrity while collaborating with clients stands as a foundational principle. The company recognises the significance of having absolute control over the diverse software systems utilised, ensuring robust protection for sensitive data and proprietary information. This commitment underscores the company’s dedication to not just meeting cybersecurity standards, but also fostering a culture of trust and reliability in every facet of its operations.
Attaining the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation demonstrates the organisation’s dedication to cyber security for both clients and stakeholders. With cyber security rapidly evolving into a mandatory criterion in the tendering process, this accreditation solidifies Billington Holdings’ position as a trusted and secure partner in the industry.
The security of our client information is of utmost importance to us, and we know having robust cyber security is the fortress that guards it. We are entrusted with our clients’ project information. Compromising that information is just not an option for us at Billington Holdings, as it is a reflection of our commitment to our clients’ privacy and security.
Ian Cawthorne, Group IT Manager at Billington Holdings, expressed gratitude to all involved parties whose collaboration and cooperation facilitated the rigorous auditing process. This achievement stands as a testament to the collective efforts and dedication of the entire team towards reinforcing the company’s cyber security posture.
Cawthorne said, “Being Cyber Essentials Plus accredited demonstrates to clients our commitment to cyber security and is fast becoming a mandatory requirement in the tendering process. This is not the end of our cyber security journey, and we will continue to implement the latest technologies in this fast-moving landscape.”
