Redfern has achieved the new Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certifications adding to the company’s already strong commitment to online security.
Back in December 2013 Redfern proved its commitment to online security by becoming the first TMC to achieve the ISO27001 accreditation for its Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It has since strengthened its position by achieving accreditation at the new ISO27001:2013 standard.
The two new accreditations are part of a new Government-backed and industry supported scheme to guide businesses in protecting themselves against cyber threats.
The scheme provides businesses, small and large, with clarity on good cyber security practice. Companies which have attained a Cyber Essentials certificate are employing safer online practices and are therefore better protected from the most common cyber threats.
Cyber Essentials is mandatory for central government contracts advertised after October 1 2014 which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services.
Redfern Chief Executive Mark Bowers said: “Our new Cyber Essentials certifications demonstrate our clear commitment to ensuring our systems and practices are as secure as possible. Online security is a huge issue facing all businesses, and one that is only set to become more important in the future.
“We processes a transaction every three seconds on behalf of our 500-plus clients throughout the UK, with 96% occurring online. Our clients can rest assured that we’re doing everything possible to protect them from cyber threats. Together with our ISO accreditations, Redfern is now the most secure and trusted TMC in the market place.”
Redfern is the fastest growing TMC in the UK and the nominated supplier of UK travel management to the government. The company was recently been named in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 which ranks Britain’s 100 fastest growing businesses.
