Strengthening our commitment to cyber security

AspiraCloud is now Cyber Essentials Plus certified!

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is an industry recognised cyber security accreditation, awarded by the National Cyber Security Centre. This government backed scheme entails a vigorous assessment where our organisation is measured against 5 key security controls which are verified by a qualified assessor before the certification is issued. To achieve the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, we also had to go through a hands-on technical verification.

And we have passed with flying colours! Take a look at our certification!
