Kindertons celebrates cyber certification…



We’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus certification for the first time in our history. This follows a variety of rigorous on-site tests towards the end of 2019, on both internal and external infrastructure.

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that will help us to protect our organisation against a range of the most common cyber-attacks. Certification gives us peace of mind that our defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks. These attacks look for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

‘We continue to invest heavily in our technology platforms as a group to provide class-leading service and have some exciting transformational plans for 2020 and beyond. Cyber Essentials Plus gives us externally verified assurance that our IT security practices are matching and underpinning our growth ambitions.’

- Dan Hayes, Group IT Director

The certification has been awarded to both Kindertons Accident Management and Plantec Assist. You can view our certificate number on the Cyber Essentials website by clicking the image below.
