AACE are proud to announce that they have been successfully re-certified as meeting the requirements of the Cyber Essentials PLUS scheme. AACE would like to thank Clearwater, our IT services company, for their support in helping us achieve compliance against the Cyber Essentials PLUS scheme requirements.

Clearwater assisted AACE with:

  • Advice on Cyber Security policy and practices
  • Configuration Maintenance of the AACE IT hardware and software
  • Completing an online assessment
  • Technical audit of the in-scope Cyber Essentials systems including user devices, all internet gateways and all servers with services accessible to unauthenticated internet users.


The Cyber Essentials PLUS Certification Body ‘Consult MB Ltd’ tested a random sample of these systems used by AACE. All devices within the AACE environment were deemed secure by the assessor.
