We have just passed the Montpellier level assessment for Cyber Essentials and we are preparing for the AXLR8 Cyber Essentials Plus audit in January. Thanks again to Right Cue and IASME. This exercise is always encourages thought about our cyber security and is a springboard for the internal trainings and audits for the rest of the year.
Between now and January we are doing our annual Penetration Testing exercise. This is involves attempted hacking by skilled consultants and many vulnerability tests and infrastructure and code reviews.
We are excited to announce that we have passed our assessment for the current Cyber Essentials again this year! In November 2021 we are returning to Penetration Testing to update findings from 2020 from an outside expert party. In December 2021 we will be audited for Cyber Essentials Plus.
We can highly recommend the detailed, professional prompt and practical approach of RightCue Assurance who led us through the process once again. Thanks!
With their help we are now preparing for Cyber Essentials + in the next two months.

Just like you, AXLR8 have beeen burning hard earned reserve cash preparing for GDPR on top of our Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Scanning and the resulting remediation action plans.
Many people are claiming to help you with GDPR if you pay them money. If, like of most of our clients, have more sense than money and some basic legal IT understanding, you should visit this ICO link. It is the official UK Information Commissioner’s Office website and the pages of content are authoritative and clearly explained. All you need to know is that you are the “Data Controller” and AXLR8 is your “Data Processor”. Obviously, if you have in house systems as well, you are both DC and DP for those systems.
If you have any queries about the matter, please do not hestitate to call and book a (free) call with one of our consultants. “A stitch in time…..”
