Church News.

We’re pleased to announce that Church International has recently been awarded Cyber Essentials Plus certification by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), demonstrating our continued commitment to cyber security.


Backed by the UK Government, the Cyber Essentials scheme sets out a baseline of technical controls to help organisations protect themselves against common online security threats, such as phishing attacks, malware, ransomware, and network attacks. The scheme assesses an organisation’s cyber defences based on five key cyber security controls: secure internet connection, device and software security, secure access control to data and services, malware and virus protection, and effective patch management. Implemented correctly, these five technical controls can protect against 80% of common cyberattacks.

To obtain our Cyber Essentials Plus certification, Church International underwent a rigorous and hands-on technical audit conducted by an independent auditor from the IASME Consortium. The audit examined and verified that we have the correct controls in place to protect our organisation from attack, providing reassurance to our customers that we take our cyber security seriously.

As a trusted recruitment partner to many leading financial services firms and organsiations in other highly regulated industries , our ability to provide high levels of cyber security is paramount. Though cyber security is an ever-evolving challenge, our Cyber Essentials Plus certification signifies another step on our continuous journey to enhance our cyber security efforts and validates our ongoing commitment to keeping our clients’ data safe.

“We’re delighted to be recognised as a leader in cyber security with our Cyber Essentials Plus certification,” commented Brian Fitzgerald, MD of Church International. “Data security is crucial for today’s organisations, and Church International’s certification demonstrates our dedication to protecting our clients’ sensitive information and helping them maintain compliance.”
