Preparing For DORA – CJC Achieves Cyber Essentials Certification


CJC Bolsters Cyber Security With Cyber Essentials Certification

London, 25 March 2024 – Crown Jewels Consultants (CJC), the leading market data consultancy and professional services provider, is glad to announce it has achieved the “Cyber Essentials” certification. CJC was assessed to have met the Cyber Essentials implementation profile, with ICT defences deemed satisfactory against a commodity-based cyber-attack.

The Cyber Essentials certification is a UK government-backed scheme to help organisations protect themselves against cyber-attacks. The certification process covers a range of technical controls, including secure configuration, access control, malware protection, patch management, and incident response.

The Cyber Essentials certification is also relevant to the EU’s DORA regulation (Digital Operational Resilience Act), which aims to improve the digital operational resilience of financial institutions and their critical infrastructure providers. DORA requires relevant organisations to implement robust cyber security measures to safeguard and protect against cyber threats and attacks.

Peter Price, Global Head of Internal Services & Cloud Operations, said, “As part of our continual efforts to strengthen our cyber security measures, we have implemented rigorous controls and procedures to ensure that we meet the highest data protection standards. A directive at CJC is to ensure our security is frequently tested against various national and international benchmarks. The Cyber Essentials certification was selected to ensure and demonstrate that CJC met and exceeded the demands of ISO 27001.

Gina Wee, Chief Information Officer at CJC, commented, “CJC understands the importance of cyber security. Cyber threats and attacks are increasingly common, and it is essential to proactively protect all data and systems. The Cyber Essentials certification is a valuable milestone that demonstrates how CJC is doing everything possible to keep our client’s data safe.”

Pete Williams, Chief Technology Officer at CJC, added “We are committed to ensuring CJC is DORA compliant. The Cyber Essentials certification is a great step forward that transparently informs our clients of our intent to bolster confidence in our priorities.”
