Fortem-IT are fully committed to learning new technologies and best practices so that our clients have continued confidence in our 

abilities to react to the issues they face in their industries and markets.

We consider ourselves business partners, this ensures we maximise the value we add and are constantly investing in our skillsets and the services we provide.

We are pleased to announce that as part of our Information Security initiatives, Fortem-IT are now Cyber Essentials certified. Certification from this government-backed initiative is widely regarded and aligns appropriately with our cybersecurity strategy.

Achieving this status demonstrates that we take cyber and data security extremely seriously and have achieved a standard that has been tested and approved by an accreditation body under the scheme.

The Cyber Essentials Scheme is part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy that aims to encourage businesses and organisations to implement digital protection against common cyber-attacks, whilst allowing them to demonstrate an increased awareness of cybersecurity. It has two main functions:

  • Provide a clear statement of the controls all organisations should implement to mitigate cybersecurity risks
  • Provide a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to their customers, investors and other stakeholders that they’ve put these controls in place
