October 15, 2019 – OSI Maritime Systems is pleased to announce that it has qualified for Cyber Essential Plus certification which demonstrates the Company’s commitment to cyber security.
The rigorous certification process, awarded by DigitalXRAID, evaluates a candidate’s Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways, Secure Configuration, Patch Management, Access Control, and Malware Protection.
“We are committed to continuous improvement,” stated Ken Kirkpatrick, President and CEO. “Equally important to us is having a secure and trusted cyber environment for our global workgroups and customers.”
Cyber Essentials offers two certification options, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. The “Plus” certification enrols an independent Certification Body to carry out the cyber security verification and which includes applying additional stress testing of systems through the use of external scans.
“In addition to the third-party validation, ‘Plus’ adds a higher layer of achievement,” Mr. Kirkpatrick continued, “OSI places great emphasis on third-party verification of its processes, systems, and products such as ECPINS® – our view on cyber security is no different.”
