Cyber Security

Hodgkinsons’ Email Encryption System

We treat the security of sensitive data very seriously. The transfer of information via web portals, emails and other cloud services can be open to cyber attacks that can have devastating effect on all concerned. In response to these risks, deploying appropriate encryption software is essential.

We are proud to announce that Hodgkinsons have partnered with Egress Switch which enables users to send and receive sensitive data securely. We have chosen to use Switch when sending confidential information via email and file transfer in order to comply with data protection regulations and ensure that when this information needs to be shared with third parties, it is done so securely.

Our new email encryption software has been certified by UK Government to enable Public and Private Sector customers to share official sensitive data over the internet, without the need to manage third party credentials.

We have also been awardered with a 'Cyber Essentials Accreditation' which certifies that we use a firewall to protect all of our devices to ensure that all connections are safe and trusted. This prevents data being transferred to an untrusted public or Wi-Fi network which could potentially be hacked. This is secured even further through the implementation of methods to defend against malware. 

By having cyber security measures in place we hope to reassure our Clients that they are consistently working to secure their IT against cyber-attacks. This accreditation also allows our cyber security level to be transparent, giving both potential and current Clients reassurance that we take the safety of our Client’s data very seriously.

 

your sensitive information is in safe hands
