Power Management ICs specialists, Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd, has demonstrated its commitment to cyber security through its successful certification to Cyber Essentials. With cyber threats increasing in both volume and sophistication, Cyber Essentials, a government backed scheme, validates that a business has introduced proven cyber security controls in line with recommended good practice.
Gareth Henson, MD, Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd advised, “The protection of our own data, and that of our clients, is key to our business. Cyber Essentials demonstrates we are doing the fundamentals of cyber security correctly. We’re delighted our investment has paid off.”
Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd achieved the certification with the support of Air Sec, an IASME Consortium licensed Certification Body and specialist cyber security division of award winning managed service provider, Air IT. Ben Curtis, Cyber Essentials Assessor at Air Sec, stated, “It’s been a pleasure to work in close partnership with Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd. Their proactive approach to cyber security is highly commendable. These days, cyber threats can target vulnerabilities just as much as they target individual businesses. In that regard, no business is immune from the threat. Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd recognises the threat is very real and by certifying to Cyber Essentials, have taken positive and effective measures.”
The certification has been awarded through accreditation body, the IASME Consortium. Dr Emma Philpott, CEO of the IASME Consortium said, “We’re delighted for Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd and I congratulate them for recognising the key role cyber security plays in any organisation. This certification is also a true demonstration to their clients and potential clients that Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd has invested in their customers security as much as their own.”
The UK Government recognise the challenge from the current cyber threat and have the ambition to tackle it head on. Cyber Essentials is very much at the heart of their National Cyber Security Strategy and through gaining the certification, Torex Semiconductor Europe Ltd is making an important and valuable contribution towards the Government’s aim of making the UK the safest place to do business online.
