Elevating Our Security Commitment: Mayet Achieves Cyber Essentials Plus Certification

We’re proud to announce another significant stride in our ongoing journey towards unparalleled security and compliance: Mayet has been awarded the Cyber Essentials Plus certificate.

This achievement not only elevates our security posture but also reaffirms our unwavering commitment to safeguarding the data that fuels clinical research advancements.

For our clients in the highly regulated pharmaceutical and clinical research sector, achieving Cyber Essentials Plus certification is a cornerstone of trust and reliability. In an industry where the integrity and confidentiality of data can directly impact patient safety and the validity of research outcomes, robust cybersecurity measures are paramount.

This certification assures our clients that we adhere to the highest standards of data protection, safeguarding sensitive information against ever-evolving cyber threats.

It is a demonstration of our commitment to stringent security protocols that is required, ensuring that every piece of data, is meticulously protected in an increasingly digital and interconnected landscape.

Cyber Essentials vs. Cyber Essentials Plus: A Step Further

While our previous Cyber Essentials certification was an example of adherence to essential cybersecurity practices, Cyber Essentials Plus offers a more advanced level of assurance than the basic Cyber Essentials certification.

This enhanced level of security involves online assessment and a detailed technical audit of our in-scope systems and devices. This audit encompasses a wide array of our infrastructure, including user devices, internet gateways, and servers accessible by unauthenticated users from the internet.

Our journey to this accreditation involved a meticulous evaluation of a sample of our systems, chosen randomly to ensure a comprehensive assessment. The audit’s depth ensures that our cybersecurity measures are not just in place but are robust and effective against potential threats.

A Commitment to Transparency and Trust

This hands-on verification process underscores our dedication not just to meeting, but exceeding industry security standards. It offers our clients and partners an added layer of assurance, knowing that our security practices have been scrutinised and validated by external experts.

This transparency is integral to building and maintaining trust, particularly in the sensitive realm of clinical research, where data integrity and privacy are paramount.

Looking Ahead with Confidence

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain focused on the path ahead. The Cyber Essentials Plus certification is not a final destination but a milestone in our continuous journey towards security excellence. We are committed to staying ahead of the evolving cyber threat landscape, ensuring that our systems and data, and consequently your research, are protected by the most robust security measures.
