Warwick-based high precision engineering company, Sodick Europe, which manufactures machinery for medical, aerospace and Formula One among others, has been presented with government certification to protect client data from misuse and cyber attacks.

The company now has the Cyber Essentials certificate which shows customers, potential customers and suppliers it has been through a rigorous testing and implementation process to ensure its cyber security is the best it can be.

Spokesman Roy Dick said while the business already had robust systems in place, it was important to keep up with the ever changing landscape of cyber security.

Mr Dick said: “Going through the certification process was incredibly helpful. You can’t just rely on what you already have in place and think it won’t happen to your business. The cyber security landscape is constantly evolving and you have to be able to keep up. It’s about having the right mindset.

“One other thing to consider now is having a Cyber Essentials certificate has become a must when it comes to applying for government contracts too – particularly the bigger ones. They will ask for it and you are significantly less likely to be considered without being able to assure them you have been through the process and have the certificate to prove it. “

The company worked with business IT solutions provider and cyber security specialist, Zenzero Solutions, to gain the certification.

Zenzero Solutions cyber security expert, Russell Howarth commented: “Cyber Essentials certification is becoming a must have for organisations which want to do business with many government departments nowadays. It shows they take cyber security seriously and gives businesses that additional knowledge and peace of mind to know they are doing all they can to best protect clients’ valuable data. It also demonstrates they have data protection processes in place as required by GDPR.”
