Caxton Payments is Cyber Essentials Certified

In an era where cyber threats loom large, ensuring the utmost security of client data is not just a responsibility but a necessity. That’s why at Caxton, we have achieved the Cyber Essentials certification, as part of our unwavering commitment to cybersecurity.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed scheme, overseen by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). Designed to protect organisations against a wide range of common cyber attacks, it is more than a badge; it’s a shield that fortifies our cyber defences. The certification focuses on essential preventative measures, effectively reducing the risk of cyber threats.

Why is Caxton Cyber Essentials Certified?

Achieving the Cyber Essentials certification was a strategic decision to ensure robust processes against cyber threats. The certification journey involves a rigorous hands-on technical verification to ensure that our security measures were not just theoretical but practically effective. These continue to be regularly tested and audited.

  • Comprehensive Protection: Cyber Essentials helps guard against the most prevalent cyber threats – the digital equivalent of a burglar testing your front door. By complying with this standard, we ensure that our basic defences are robust, thereby discouraging potential cyber attackers.
  • Enhanced Customer Confidence: This certification gives clients a clear indicator that their data is in safe hands. It reassures you of our proactive stance in securing our IT infrastructure against cyber-attacks.
  • Staying Ahead of the Scammers: Cyber Essentials is not a one-time assessment but an ongoing process. It requires annual renewals, ensuring that we stay updated with the latest security practices and technologies.

Our focus remains on our clients. This certification is more than a compliance or security milestone; it's a part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the highest standards of data protection and cybersecurity.

Caxton aims to be ahead of the pack when it comes to cyber protection

Cybersecurity is an ever-evolving threat, and complacency is not an option. We continually assess and enhance our cyber defences, ensuring that we stay ahead of potential threats. Our journey with Cyber Essentials is ongoing, mirroring our dedication to safeguarding your trust and security.

The Cyber Essentials certification is not just an achievement; it's a reassurance for our clients.
