Digivault, a bitcoin and digital asset custody solution from Diginex, announced today its successful completion of the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, reinforcing its commitment to unparalleled security and providing offerings that meet the requirements of institutional clients.
Receiving this certification means that Digivault has passed a rigorous process. And ensures it has the measures in place to protect against the vast majority of common cyberattacks. These include, hacking, phishing, malicious software, ransomware and distributed denial of service (DDOS).
Cyber Essentials Plus is backed by the UK Government and supported by the National Cyber Secretary Centre, which is part of GCHQ. Since 2016, the UK Government has invested around £1.9 billion (USD $2.48 billion) on cybersecurity.
As part of the process, Digivault has also been independently verified by certification body CREST.
“Now with this certification, we have proof of our unparalleled security measures; and we hope it will provide further peace of mind to investors who have an appetite for this burgeoning asset class. Today’s announcement is the first stage of accreditations for us at Digivault; and we are currently seeking ISO27001 Information Security Management accreditation; and alignment to the worldwide Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).”
