BVRLA secures cyber security accreditation

The BVRLA has obtained the government’s Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation following an independent assessment of the association’s IT security infrastructure and processes.

The accreditation, awarded by the National Cyber Security Centre’s partner IASME, demonstrates that the BVRLA meets the standards of IT security required to help protect against cyber attacks.

Successful accreditation shows that the organisation meets standards in five key areas: ensuring a secure internet connection; applying the most secure settings to secure devices and software; controlling access to data and services; protecting against viruses and other malware; and keeping devices and software up to date.

BVRLA director of membership and legal, Shashi Maharaj said: “IT security and the safe and secure management and processing of data has never been more important to organisations as digitisation continues to expand.”
