As a technology solutions provider entrusted with the safety, regulatory compliance and management of our clients’ vital processes, we consider the assurance of accreditation to be vital to the work that we do.

High standards and assurance

Our accreditations offer peace of mind to our past, present and future clients. They provide assurance that all we do remains to the highest standards and is approved by meticulous and authoritative bodies.

They also indicate to our people and our partners that our processes and actions comply with the requirements of our industry.

Microsoft accreditations

At Content+Cloud, we are proud to be the most awarded Microsoft Partner in the UK.

Working alongside the world’s largest software developer for a number of years, we have deep knowledge of Microsoft’s most prevalent apps and services. We transfer this knowledge and experience to our clients, adding value to the services and support we provide.

Cyber security accreditations

Through Perspective Risk, one of our family of businesses, we have gained a host of security accreditations.

Sought by our clients for assurance, these accreditations offer peace of mind that all we do in the areas of cyber security and risk mitigation is to the highest possible standards.

CHECK accredited

The UK government’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance (CESG) forms part of Part of the National Cyber Security Centre. It advises organisations on how to protect their information and systems against today’s threats. Perspective Risk is accredited under CESG CHECK for its penetration testing solutions. Government and Critical National Infrastructure customers can be assured that they will receive high quality services when work is conducted under the CHECK terms and conditions.

Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed and industry supported programme. Since 2014, it has been a mandatory requirement for businesses working with government organisations. It outlines the basic security requirements of any businesses bidding for central government contracts. Cyber Essentials Plus goes beyond the mandatory and is the highest possible accreditation. It demonstrates that we take a deep and thorough approach to our own security. It also offers assurance that we have planned, prepared for and work to mitigate the negative effects of cyber security incidents.

Security Cleared (SC) engineers and consultants

For government contracts involving sensitive information, we can provide SC-cleared engineers and consultants. This offers reassurance that the experts working on your projects are security conscious, aware of the requirements of handling sensitive assets and have been thoroughly vetted with background checks and where appropriate, interviews.

CREST accredited services

Several of our cyber security services are accredited by CREST. This international not-for-profit accreditation and certification body represents and supports the technical information security market. We can provide CREST-qualified consultants for our penetration testing, intelligence-led penetration testing and vulnerability assessment solutions.

IT Health Check (ITHC) approved

An ITHC is an IT security assessment required for working with the UK government’s computer systems. It indicates that our own systems are as a safe as they can be from security breaches and that we conduct regular assessments and remediation to maintain these standards. Through Perspective Risk, we are approved to deliver services under this scheme.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

ISO standards are an essential quality benchmark for any technology provider in a digitally transformed world.

The below are the standards we have received certification for.

ISO 9001 Quality Management

The ISO 9001 Quality Management standard outlines best practice in providing consistently high-quality products and services which meet regulatory requirements. Our ISO 9001 : 2015 certification shows our commitment to and demonstration of continuous improvement.

ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management

Achieving ISO 22301 : 2012 certification evidences that we have implemented and continuously improve our management system to mitigate the negative effects of disruptions to our business and clients.

ISO 27001 Information Security Management

Achieving ISO 27001 : 2013 certification verifies that we have established and implemented an effective information security management system. It also confirms that we maintain and continually improve it, while assessing and mitigating security risks.

ISO 45001 Health and Safety Management

Commitment to improving our people’s safety, reducing risks in our workplace and creating better, safer working conditions is verified by our ISO 45001 certification.
