ENVITIA is a leading provider of geospatial intelligence software and solutions, serving defence, government and industry customers all around the world. ENVITIA has more than 25 years’ experience helping customers make better and faster operational decisions through software specialising in the discovery, visualisation and exploitation of geospatial information.

Cyber Essentials was developed by the UK Government and industry with the aim to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against common cyber attacks and, reduce the level of cyber security risk in its supply chain.

Cyber Essentials is a minimum requirement for suppliers bidding for certain sensitive information and personal information handling government contracts. ENVITIA has achieved the Cyber Essentials certification, demonstrating the continuous commitment to our customers for providing secure geospatial intelligence services and solutions.

Dr Sharon Cooper, ENVITIA’s CEO commented: “We are proud to have achieved the certification of assurance demonstrating to both our company and customers that we take cyber security seriously. Our customers can be assured that our products and solutions have been assessed to the highest level of security standards that this scheme provides”.

The IASME Consortium Limited is one of the four Cyber Essentials accreditation bodies appointed by the UK Government. IASME has developed a suite of assessment and certifications for small companies to demonstrate their level of information assurance. ENVITIA has performed a self-assessment against the five most important security controls and the information we provided has been verified by Capital Network Solutions, one of the IASME Certification Bodies.

About Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously. The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against unskilled internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities – which are freely available on the internet. Organisations that undertake Cyber Essentials are encouraged to recertify at least once a year and, where appropriate, progress their security.
