Registry Trust Ltd, which maintains the official statutory Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines for England & Wales on behalf of the Ministry of Justice and the Registers for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, and Jersey, has gained ‘Cyber Essentials Plus’ certification.
Cyber Essentials Plus is the audited version of the Cyber Essentials information security standard which was already held by Registry Trust. Cyber Essentials requires organisations to have a number of technical and procedural controls in place to improve their information security in order to mitigate common internet-borne cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials Plus is a series of tests that provide a further level of assurance that these technical controls have been successfully implemented within an organisation.
Registry Trust offers a range of services relating to its monetary judgments data and including TrustOnline; the only service which provides members of the public and businesses with immediate access to search the complete public Registers for UK & Ireland online. The organisation was found to fulfil all the requirements of the Cyber Essentials Plus standard by certifying body PGI, which issued Registry Trust Ltd with a Certificate of Assurance on 12 April 2021.
Lex Jones, CEO, Registry Trust Ltd, said:
"As a not-for-profit organisation, we have a social aim to share our data for ‘public good’ to inform responsible lending, borrowing, and business decisions, and we have transparency at the heart of everything we do, including in our external online presence and use of digital platforms. However, the data we hold can be highly sensitive and needs to be carefully managed. Going through the Cyber Essentials Plus audit is therefore an important process and we are pleased to be able to demonstrate our compliance through this certification.”
