Mercian Labels Enhances Cyber Security

Mercian Labels has been accredited to the highest ‘plus’ level of the UK Government endorsed Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) security standard.

Cyber Essentials Plus is a UK government-backed scheme independently verified by an accredited external penetration tester who conducts a series of technical assessments across various attack vectors to ensure the company is sufficiently protected. These include boundary firewalls, secure asset configuration, internal vulnerability scans, MFA enforced accounts, patch management, user access controls, malware protection, and mobile assets.

“Cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated and frequent today, and the technical controls you need to deliver a resilient manufacturing platform in labeling are very challenging,” said Dr. Adrian Steele, Managing Director of Mercian Labels.

One of the Mercian Labels’ biggest customers drove the company to accredit to the top CE+ standard as the profile of high volume variable barcode labeling is particularly sensitive. 

The assessment included cyber security hackers trying to breach the company’s cyber defenses in many different ways, including firewall penetration tests, email malware, malicious browser downloads, and internal vulnerability scans probing for weaknesses.
