James Holmes, CIO, North P&I James Holmes, CIO, North P&I

North P&I Club has been awarded the UK government-backed Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation, awarded to companies who have successfully implemented systems to protect themselves against common cyber threats.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Cyber Essentials Plus includes an internal scans and on-site assessment programme, and requires companies to implement five key controls: boundary firewalls and internet gateways, secure configuration, access control, malware protection and patch management.

“The Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation reflects our ongoing commitment to cyber security, and provides our shipowner members with peace of mind that we take the protection of IT and data facilities seriously,” said James Holmes, North P&I Club’s chief information officer.

“North is actively promoting awareness and discussion of the importance of cyber security with both staff and our shipowner members – we are doing this through our messaging and cyber security loss prevention initiatives and insights, which have been rolled out both in the UK and overseas.”{/mprestriction}
