Reliable cyber security solutions
Whether it is the UK GDPR or ISO certification, cyber security compliance is essential for every organisation dealing with IT.
In the UK, The Data Protection Act 2018 controls how your organisation should process and control information under the GDPR. A key principle of the UK GDPR is having “appropriate technical and organisational measures” to secure data.
Many industries demand organisations to follow cyber security standards for business and customer protection. Creative Networks cybersecurity goes beyond compliance.

What is PCI DSS Compliance?
Information security standard PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) aims to lessen the occurrence of fraudulent charges on credit and debit cards by tightening up protections for cardholder information.
The PCI DSS applies to all entities that store, process, and/or transmit cardholder data, e-commerce stores and physical shops included.
Something to keep in mind is you do not automatically comply with PCI DSS if you use a payment gateway like Stripe. You must still accept payments in a PCI compliant manner. You can find out more about PCI DSS here.
Creative Networks can review your payment systems and advise on compliance so you can achieve PCI DSS certification. We will check your firewalls, encryption, data storage, network and use of anti-virus software.
What ISO 27001 Certification Brings to The Organisation
ISO 27001 provides ISMS requirements (information security management system). ISMS is a framework of policies, methods, and procedures that manages information security threats.
ISO 27001 certification verifies a company’s ISMS satisfies ISO 27001 requirements. An approved certification organisation grants certification after an ISMS audit.
ISO 27001 certification allows businesses to show clients and other stakeholders that they have established an ISMS in accordance with global standards.
Creative Networks Cyber Security Standards
For some organisations, cyber security compliance will be as simple as completing the Cyber Essentials scheme or gaining ISO 27001 certification.
For others, compliance may require specific certifications. Examples include PAS 555 (cyber security) and ISO 22301 (business continuity management systems).
Knowing which cyber security certifications you need can be difficult. The main thing you need is an internationally recognised certification that provides a cyber security framework for your systems. ISO 27001 is a good example.
At Creative Networks, we will help you gain compliance by identifying what certifications and processes are relevant to you. The first step is a risk and vulnerability assessment, which will determine all key areas of compliance.
