BlackBerry is also an accredited certifying body for Cyber Essentials Plus, which can support other businesses in receiving the certification.

Cyber security company BlackBerry has received a Cyber Essentials Plus CE certification from the UK government.

It claims to be the first major mobile vendor to have received this certification.

Cyber Essentials is part of the UK government s National Cyber Security Strategy and its objective is to make the country a safe place for running online businesses.

From October 2014, the government has made it mandatory for suppliers to receive Cyber Essentials for bidding in government contracts, where sensitive and personal information is handled.

To receive Cyber Essentials Plus certification, an authorised external tester will conduct tests from within the organisation including internal network scan, verification of account security for both standard users and administrative accounts.
