At OceanWise, we take our responsibility for our customers’ data very seriously and part of this is to ensure our and their data is protected by the highest standards of information security possible. Cyber Essentials is a UK Government initiative that helps organisations assess and address risk in four key areas: Access Control; Secure Configuration; Malware Protection and Patch Management. Working with an external consultant, OceanWise passed the assessment in all areas for its onsite and offsite Windows and Linux based servers and personal devices and is now Cyber Essentials certified. Information Security Management is an important component of our Business Management System comprising Quality, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety. As a consequence, we plan to extend our existing ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 accreditations to include ISO 27001 in the near future.
