Accreditation of suppliers is increasingly becoming an important component of our Client’s assurance framework and Movement Strategies continues to secure accreditation from relevant bodies. Recent milestones include Cyber Essentials Plus certification and Constructionline Level 2 accreditation and we continue to work towards ISO27001 accreditation.

Cyber Essential Plus is a UK Government-backed scheme that specifies best practice on how to protect organisations, whatever the size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks [1]. Movement Strategies recognise the importance of protecting our own information, as well as our client’s information, and the changes implemented as part of our work to prepare for the external audit have increased the security of our systems from attack.

Constructionline accreditation is being requested by an increasing number of Clients, as a means of confirming that suppliers have the required insurances, policies and systems in place. The accreditation process also includes references from Clients.

Simon Babes, Movement Strategies’ Managing Director commented “Our Clients expect us to deliver high-quality outputs, to manage data securely and to have the necessary systems and processes in place. Accreditation plays an important role in providing assurance to our Clients and I’m delighted that we’ve achieved these two important milestones. Our programme continues as we work towards ISO27001 accreditation, which we expect to achieve later in 2018. At that stage, our level of accreditation is likely to become a differentiator, as opposed to being simply compliant with our Client’s expectations, which is a great position to be."
