Cyber attacks are now a very real threat to organizations of all sizes, with research showing a potential breach to be the number one risk corporates fear in 2020. Seven years ago, cyber risk did not even feature in the top ten. Cyber Essentials accreditation is the first step in mitigating this risk and is recommended by the UK Government as the minimum protection businesses should have in place.
Cyber Essentials accreditation demonstrates to your customers, the ICO and cyber criminals that you have considered potential threats and have taken the necessary steps to protect your business.
