Cyber Essentials Certification

Sterling Transcription

Sterling Transcription is proud to be certified through Cyber Essentials.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government backed scheme dedicated to the protection against internet-based attacks.

Achieving Cyber Essentials certification ensures Sterling Transcription is safeguarded from the most common cyber threats. It is crucial to us that our clients are confident that their sensitive data is secure.

According to the security standards laid out by Cyber Essentials, a company must employ the following technical controls to protect against hacking, phishing and password guessing:

  • User Access Control
  • Firewalls
  • Malware Protection
  • Secure Configuration
  • Patch Management

Sterling Transcription successfully met these criteria. 

As a transcription company we handle high volumes of confidential content. By being proactive when it comes to defence against cyber threats, we are not only protecting ourselves, but, more importantly, our clients.

Cyber Essentials certification is one of the many ways that we demonstrate our steadfast commitment to internet security, and ultimately the trust that our clients instil in us. 

As a recognised and established leader in the industry, Sterling Transcription takes a mature and measured approach to cyber security.  One of the ways we continue to demonstrate this commitment is by working towards ISO 27001 certification in early 2020. 

While Cyber Essentials certification safeguards us against the most common internet threats, ISO 27001 addresses information security systems from the perspective of maintenance, implementation and continual improvement. With both these accreditations we remain confident in our position as industry leaders and are proud to raise the standard of cyber security.
