Hanwha Techwin Europe has been certified as compliant with the UK Government backed Cyber Essentials scheme.
Conducted by the Department for Business, Energy & 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 it has procedures in place to minimise the threat of an attack on the IT infrastructure at the company’s headquarters in Chertsey, Surrey, and extends to cover laptops which are used by field based employees.
“We are 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 (H.Y.) Hwang Ph.D., Managing Director, Hanwha Techwin Europe. “Our cyber security programme is a key element of our ‘WE MOVE with trust’ philosophy and reflects the proactive stance we are taking to protect confidential data.
“Beyond the scope of the Cyber Essentials scheme, we remain vigilant to ensure 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 designed to identify evolving new threats to the integrity of our solutions. We are 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.”
