Not the usual information security insights post today.

For me receiving, or even worse, buying ‘the right and appropriate’ anniversary present can sometimes end up being tricky task to fulfil correctly, not to mention the hardest bit, which is actually remembering the anniversary date in the first place!! Especially with all that is going on in the world right now.

Just recently, I had one of those friendly reminders of my work anniversary from the automated systems from within LinkedIn, where my connections kindly liked the fact, I had been at 3B Data Security for four years now. However, that also meant it was 3B Data Security ‘s anniversary as well; four years since its inception into the world of Cyber Security Consultancy, PCI DSS Compliance, PFI Data Breaches, Penetration Testing and Security Training.

Fortunately, in this case I don’t have the same sort of ‘relationship fall out’ that comes from forgetting a wife’s or loved one’s anniversary, and I don’t have the problem of purchasing ‘the wrong’ sort of present as well!

I felt it pertinent to pause and acknowledge the time that passed and coincidentally, 3B Data Security has received some presents of sorts as well; in that we have just been certified and achieved the ISO/IEC 27001 Standard for our Information Security Management System. This was shortly after completing our IASME Cyber Essentials Plus and both for 3B Data Security as an organisation and as an approved assessor to help others get approved in the scheme.

We also received the following through the post from CREST regarding our status as a member and approved CREST registered company for Cyber Security Incident Response, Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment.

Naturally, these are more achievements and rewards for the efforts put in by the 3B Data Security team than anniversary presents, but I thought it was apt timing all the same.

I just wanted to personally take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank all the team here at 3B Data Security for their efforts and loyalty to date, and also thank our clients, partners, friends and family that have supported us up to now and look forward to helping more people and organisations in the world of Cyber Security in the future. We have recently added several new and updated services to our portfolio that we hope can continue to add value and help our existing and new clients.

All the best and thank you for your time.
