C4 Achieve Cyber Essentials Accreditation

C4 are proud to have achieved Cyber Essentials Accreditation for the fourth year running! This certification provides evidence of robust company IT systems, protecting us and our customers from cyber-attack.

 The offices at C4 UK were visited by an independent assessor from IASME who conducted a rigorous internal audit. IASME is one of only five companies who are accredited to certify businesses against the Government’s Cyber Essential Scheme.

Our cyber security systems were assessed against five essentials: boundary firewalls and internet gateways, secure configuration, access control, malware protection and patch management. These were tested alongside the physical security measures, staff awareness and data backup systems in place. C4 systems were found to be excellent in all areas.

Sebastien Barth (C4 Group Managing Director,) explains why C4 Logistics chooses to be externally audited by IASME: “At C4 we rely heavily on technology and IT systems to provide an exceptional service for our customers. Currently there are no legal requirements for freight companies to maintain any level of cyber security, but at C4 we are acutely aware of the risks of potential cyber-attacks. It is essential to us that we keep our data secure because our customers trust us to keep their sensitive data safe. Achieving Cyber Essentials accreditation is evidence that C4 maintains the secure and robust systems to do this.”
