Print Image Network is a Cyber Essentials Certified Supplier

Published 7 May 2024 in 

This means that we check and enhance our security against cyber-attacks to protect our company assets, IP and customer data, against common cyber threats.

As a leading UK electoral printing specialist and trusted supplier to over 70 local authorities across the UK, information security processes have been common practice; we have held Cyber Essentials accreditation since 2017, which is assessed annually. We are delighted to report that we recently passed our assessment in April 2024!

What is Cyber Essentials Accreditation?

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that sets out a good baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations spanning all sectors. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly, can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks.

Print Image Network implemented these five Cyber Essentials Controls to help stay secure:

  • Demonstrated a secure configuration of computers and network devices
  • Use boundary firewalls and internet gateways to block attackers and external threats
  • Manage strict access control and administrative privileges to staff
  • Showed evidence of software patching and licencing
  • Implementation of appropriate malware protection

Why Cyber Essentials and what does this renewal of our accreditation mean for our customers?

Enhanced Security: working with local authorities to print election stationery including postal votes, ballot papers and poll cards, we handle a lot of confidential and sensitive information.

Data Protection: this data is at the heart of everything we do, and we need to protect this against cyber-attacks.

Continuous Improvement: we demonstrate our commitment to staying abreast of the latest threats and implementing best practices to safeguard our customer data.

Trust and Confidence: we are instilling greater confidence with regards to the security and reliability of our services.
