Our commitment to keeping you compliant and secure

Here at Cintra, compliance and cybersecurity are our top priorities, and we go above and beyond with our measures and controls. Here’s what we do.

Internal procedures designed to keep your data safe


Northumbria Police cyber team visit us regularly to brief our C-Suite, infosec, IT, and DPO teams to ensure we’re ahead of the curve with threats coming down the line. 


We hold regular cybersecurity training and briefings at a board level, so every single person internally has the right knowledge to keep your data safe.


We moved all of our customers off on-premise solutions in 2021, now keeping all of our customers on more secure, cloud-based systems.


We have a dedicated Data Protection Officer, and while the size of our company means we aren’t legally required to have one, we know it’s vital to total data safety and compliance.

We keep you ahead of the curve...

We’re ahead of the curve, and that means our customers are too. When you partner with us, you’ll have total peace of mind that we’re doing everything in our power to keep your sensitive data safe and secure, while maintaining total compliance.
