How can Cyber Essentials help?
By undertaking Cyber Essentials IT companies can understand first hand what standard their clients are starting to expect with their company security. That’s puts you in a better position to discuss what your client needs to build their own cyber resilience and at the same time protecting you by securing your supply chain.
Cyber attacks are frequently in the news. Cyber Essentials can fully or partially mitigate up to 99% of common cyber attacks meaning that if you meet the standard you are less likely to fall victim yourself, and you can boast to your clients that you are acting responsibly by securing your data and systems, which is probably what they expect anyway.
