Cyber accreditation secured

Share this post:

Bondholder Neuways has helped commercial explosives and blasting specialist, EPC-UK, receive an essential Cyber Essentials Plus Certificate.

The certification, which is a key requirement for any business handling sensitive and personal information, is also considered a prerequisite for companies bidding for government contracts.

Neuways supported EPC-UK's repeated achievement through a dynamic partnership, demonstrating that the blast specialist has all appropriate cyber security controls in place.


Neuways’ Business Development Director, Michelle Catterall explains: “Achieving annual Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation is a valuable strategic accomplishment for EPC-UK, and one Neuways is pleased to assist in securing each year.

“Based around meeting five main controls, attainment of the Cyber Essentials Plus certification also confirms successful on-going performance of independent onsite assessments; including audits and vulnerability scans, open ports or incorrect configurations. Achieving within these areas proves vital in keeping supplier and customer data secure, complying with government security standards, and becoming merited with the regarded ‘trust badge’, which in this instance, illustrates that both Neuways and EPC-UK are committed to excellence in customer service.”

A trusted IT supplier to EPC-UK since 2013, Neuways, has successfully worked with the organisation at both strategic and transactional levels. Considered as more than a consultant, the blast specialist has placed Neuways as an active partner, committed to ensuring the company’s understanding of finer, relevant technological details, and the important role strong cyber strategy can play in supporting professional operations.

Julie Wootton, Head of Human Resources & IT at EPC-UK, added: “Offering services in addition to consultancy, Neuways has become involved in recruiting our IT apprentices; helping them learn as part of its own team and supporting learners in furthering skillsets, to successfully gain the IT accreditations that will serve them so well in their future careers.

“Through the Neuways partnership, we’ve benefitted from specialist IT support, delivered by a team that has worked to develop its own coherent understanding of EPC-UK’s working operation and business goals.
