Potential Project has successfully gone through the accreditation process and obtained the Cyber Essentials Certification. Cyber Essentials is a set of baseline technical controls produced by the UK Government and security industry to help organisations demonstrate a public commitment to network security and the standards to which they operate. Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed standard, but it is recognised internationally and many tenders now specify Cyber Essentials certification as a requirement.
