The Tooley & Foster Partnership has achieved IASME-accredited Cyber Essentials certification. Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks and to put essential security controls in place.

IT Manager David Wollaston said: “Cyber Essentials is increasingly becoming a must-have standard for professionals across the construction sector. It is particularly welcome that our accreditation coincides with Cyber Resilience Week 2017. This is a signal to our clients, partners and the wider community that we take data security very seriously.”

Partner Khosro Bashi said: “As an RIBA Chartered Practice, the Architects’ Code of Conduct already requires us to ensure that adequate security is in place to safeguard paper and electronic records for clients. We have taken the next step in implementing a proportionate level of cyber protection.

“Whilst the UK construction industry has not yet suffered any known high profile cyber attacks, at Tooley & Foster we can now be sure that we have strong systems in place for protecting our data.”
