Hanwha Techwin Europe has been certified as being compliant with the UK Government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme. Administered by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the industry-supported scheme is designed to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks.
The certificate awarded to Hanwha Techwin Europe verifies that the business has procedures in place specifically designed to minimise the threat of an attack on the IT infrastructure at the company’s headquarters in Chertsey, Surrey and extends to cover laptops used by field-based employees.
“We’re constantly evaluating and updating our IT security in order to negate the risk of any disruption to our business or our business partners,” said Bob Hwang, managing director of Hanwha Techwin Europe. “Our cyber security programme is a key element of our ‘We Move With Trust’ philosophy and reflects the proactive stance we’re taking to protect confidential data.”
Hwang continued: “Beyond the scope of the Cyber Essentials scheme, we remain vigilant to ensure that our Wisenet cameras, recording devices and software entrusted to protect property, people and assets are equipped to minimise the threat from cyber attacks. We have a sustained testing and monitoring programme in place designed to identify evolving new threats to the integrity of our solutions. We’re determined to be open and honest with our customers when new cyber security threats are identified and will move quickly to develop further advanced versions of our firmware to combat them.”
