March 2023 – Catering management technology firm, Zupa, has announced it has been awarded with Cyber Essentials Plus certification in response to its commitment to cyber security protection. The Government-backed accreditation scheme is designed to give assurance on an organisation’s ability to protect its customers against the majority of cyber-attacks.
This latest accreditation supports Zupa’s values to consistently strive for technical excellence, while appreciating the importance of collective responsibility regarding the security concerning all aspects of its business and customer data.
Following a rigorous review from an independent cyber security assessor, who examined the company’s resilience against internet facing devices, Zupa has also been subject to a thorough technical audit conducted by a Cyber Essentials Certification Body. This robust assessment included authenticated vulnerability scanning of representative user endpoints, including internet-facing servers, vulnerability scanning of Zupa’s external internet-facing infrastructure, user privilege checks, email attachment tests, web browser download checks and a review of mobile devices used across the business such as smartphones and tablets.
Ollie Brand, CEO at Zupa commented, “Safety, security and privacy is of the utmost importance to our business. This accreditation highlights the level of significance we place on cyber security, as well as reinforcing our commitment to deliver technical excellence wherever possible. We want our customers to have peace of mind that they are protected and that we are doing everything we can to retain our best of class standards across the board.”
