Buddy Healthcare awarded with Cyber Essentials Plus certification
We are happy to announce that Buddy Healthcare has successfully achieved the UK Government's Cyber Essentials Plus certification. Our certification demonstrates that we meet the requirements for delivering secure services to hospitals and healthcare organisations.
Previously we had obtained Cyber Essentials accreditation, which has now been upgraded to the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation; the highest level of certification offered under the Cyber Essentials scheme.
We, as a company, want to ensure that our clients', partners' and patients' personal information and data are safe. With our new certification, we can demonstrate that we have proven technical security controls in place.
Certified cyber security
- Helps in reassuring our clients and partners that we are working to secure our IT against cyber attacks and that we have cyber security measures in place.
- Provides a clear picture of our company's cyber security levels.
- Some government contracts require Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification. With our latest certificate, we can take part in the tenders.
The Cyber Essentials Plus assessment was completed by a qualified, independent auditor who evaluated and tested our company with technical security controls simulating common cyber threats.
"This certificate demonstrates that Buddy Healthcare takes all data and cyber security matters seriously and our customers can trust us to process their patient data securely. Combined with our unique offering, this accreditation helps us convince the decision makers that Buddy Healthcare is a reliable partner and enables us to continue our growth in the UK.", says Jussi Määttä, CEO of Buddy Healthcare.
