Cyphra lead the way in becoming the first Northern Ireland Company to gain UK Government cyber certification.

Cyphra has become the first organisation based in Northern Ireland to achieve Cyber Essentials Plus certification. The scheme was introduced as part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy and is designed to improve the resilience of UK businesses to common cyber security threats.

It provides a verifiable certification of the company’s “cyber hygiene” to its customers, partners, insurers and others via an independent assessment of the basic controls needed to mitigate risks from internet-borne threats. Accreditation to the scheme is now a mandatory requirement for certain UK government procurements.
