When a business works to obtain this, it helps them guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate their commitment to cyber security. Achieving this certification also helps them address other compliance requirements such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Working towards this certification is a wise move for every organisation that uses IT to store and process data. In our line of work it is especially important for us to achieve this. We provide our customers with security advice and are currently helping many of them work towards their own Cyber Essentials compliance and / or their GDPR preparations. So it is important to show that we practice what we preach!
Our customer assistance has included a number of FREE seminars on these subjects, please let us know if you would like to attend one in the future.
As for our own compliance, we now have this certificate proudly on display
