We are very proud to announce that SignVideo has become the first Deaf-led, Deaf-deaf owned VRS/VRI provider in the UK to achieve the “Cyber Essentials” compliance and certification standard. This is really important to us and to our customers, helping to protect the SignVideo service from common online security threats!
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security — particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:
- hacking — exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
- phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
- password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing password
