Cascade awarded Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation

Cascade Cash Management (Cascade) has started 2019 with a brand new accreditation that positions them as one of the UK’s safest online financial portals.

The company is delighted to have received its Cyber Essential Plus mark from the National Cyber Security Centre, meaning that its internal and online IT systems are considered completely secure against any form of cyber attack.

Cascade is an independent and transparent service created to generate enhanced cash returns and increased protection on deposits through professional cash management.

The Cascade team of eleven administer cash savings on behalf of clients and depositors, who can also use the portal to administer their own savings. Partners including IFA’s, solicitors, attorneys, accountants and many more can also self-brand the product for presentation to their own clients.

Cascade was recently shortlisted for a National Innovation Award for the Best Technology Initiative, at the London Institute of Banking & Finance’s annual Financial Innovation ceremony.

Its managing director Dr Emma Black has recently won high accolade in both the Forward Ladies national awards for Best Digital Company and in the North East Business Awards for Digital Performance. Dr Emma said:

“In every way we can, the team and I are constantly driving the company, the digital technology as well as our customer care and performance onwards and upwards. To have our cyber security independently certified at the highest levels gives complete confidence in the security on our online portal and shows that our investment in the highest standards for our technology is all worth it.

“We are delighted to have the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation and are confident that this will stand us in even better stead to grow the client base, the deposits made and the business over the coming year!”

Cyber Essentials Plus is endorsed by the GCHQ National Cyber Security Centre. The Cascade Portal underwent rigorous testing from independent experts that form a Certification Body, as part of the government-backed scheme. The process ensures that all GDPR compliance is in place and that the online portal is not at risk of being compromised.

This is all important when the scale of Cascade’s online activity is appreciated. To date the team have administered over £700m of savings deposits.

The online portal is the only one of its kind in the UK allowing independent and unbiased cash solutions meaning that clients don’t have to choose only one bank. With the online portal and Cascade’s client support team, all banks are accessed quickly and easily, on a daily basis.
