As CEO of Cantium Business Solutions, I know that our public sector heritage and considerable cyber expertise will allow a significant contribution to be made to this important preventative initiative. More now than ever, as the number of people working remotely increases, our work with businesses in raising the profile of Information security has never been more important against a backdrop of an ever increasing risk of attack"
