Akero are Now Cyber Essentials Plus Certified

2 min read

Akero Labs are very pleased to announce we are now certified under the UK Government Cyber Essentials Plus scheme.

The Cyber Essentials scheme is designed to encourage organisations to adopt good practice in information security, a key requirement of modern web based software platforms.

With cyber security and the threat of online attacks becoming more and more prevalent it’s important to ensure your data is stored in a safe and secure manner. It’s no longer enough to just assume that the software platforms you use are taking sufficient measures to keep your data safe. That’s why the Cyber Essentials Plus scheme is a great way to judge the security credentials of any providers you use – leaving out the guesswork.

At Akero Labs we take data security very seriously. Along with our externally assessed Cyber Essentials Plus certification we have regular security audits carried out on both the Akero software platform and our technology infrastructure. These security audits include penetration testing carried out using both CREST PTES and OWASP testing methodologies.

What does this mean for you? Akero is one of the only marketing software platforms currently certified under the Cyber Essentials Plus scheme. Users of Akero can be assured that the security and robustness of the Akero platform has been independently tested and verified by an external certification body.
