CTS is a sustainable business which understands the responsibility they have as a corporation and the impact they make to the rest of society and the environment. CTS is delighted to be recognised for this. The CTS team will continue to go above and beyond when it comes to our local environment.

CTS recently obtained a cyber security certificate which shows the business has achieved a robust level of security that provides safe transferral of data in and out of the company.

Technology has become an increasingly integral aspect for CTS. From email correspondence and financial transactions, to professional networking and collaborative work documents, CTS rely on technology to be connected at all times and conduct work effectively.

The growth of the digital economy brings with it a growing number of cyber criminals using increasingly diverse and sophisticated attacks against businesses. Therefore, it is vital for more businesses to follow in the footsteps of CTS and introduce a robust, high level of cyber security.

An external security scan was carried out which scans any known weaknesses.  The recently acquired certificate protects the information that leaves CTS and information which is accepted must be of a certain level of encryption that has the least amount of known weaknesses ensuring confidential data is safe.

The certificate also entails that CTS follow a certain standard ensuring data is protected – such as password policies, access rights to certain locations etc.
