At MMRIT, we’re committed to ensuring we not only recommend best-practice cybersecurity processes to clients but that we also follow them.
Last year MMRIT became Cyber Essentials certified, and we’ve continued to follow the Cyber Essentials recommendations to achieve certification for the second year.
This criminal activity affected up to 40,000 accounts with 9,000 of them having had money taken from their account totalling £2.26m. As a precaution, Tesco Bank halted online transactions and contactless payments, although cash withdrawals and chip and pin payments were still accepted.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme that’s designed to help organisations protect themselves against online threats. By being certified, it means you meet the government’s cybersecurity standard.
Cyber Essentials Certification
Should I be Cyber Essentials Certified?
At MMRIT we would advise organisations to consider it for two reasons: –

- It is a UK-wide recognised standard that shows your commitment to fighting against growing online threats.
