Cyber Essentials is a government endorsed scheme introduced to ensure the protection of data. The scheme identifies fundamental security controls against common cyber threats. Cyber Essentials was developed in collaboration with industry partners such as the Information Security Forum, the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises Consortium, and the British Standards Institution.
SecureCloud+ is proud to announce we have been awarded the Cyber Essentials PLUS certification. The scheme follows similar principles to Cyber Essentials with additional stringent requirements which are audited by an external certifying body, using specific tools, techniques and processes.

Over the last three years it has been our pleasure to support the RAF Cadets during the two weeks they spend at RAF Cosford at the Cyber Gold Camps. This year’s event, like the others, was a huge success. The energy and teamwork that emanated from the group this year was infectious making it a really rewarding two weeks being part of the training schedule. An inspirational bunch with bright futures ahead of them.
We were delighted to welcome AM Osborn to our new offices in Reading. Amongst other things we discussed the up and coming RAF rugby season and plans for the next RAF Girls Festival of Rugby which is supported by SecureCloud+ and is to be held once again at RAF Halton. This year the event welcomed over 400 girls from U13s, U15s and U18s age groups – with the buzz around this year’s event already building we anticipate it will double in size!
