Start Tech is proud to announce that we have been awarded the status of National Cyber Security Centre - Assured Service Provider. This is a significant achievement for our company, as it demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest levels of cyber security to our clients.
The Assured Service Provider scheme is a government-backed program that provides assurance to organisations that the cyber security services they purchase meet the highest standards.
Although there are no legal or regulatory requirements for cyber security companies to become accredited with standards like the Assured Service Providers framework (yet!), Start Tech believe to consistently deliver high standards for our clients, we must hold ourselves accountable first.
Some benefits our clients gain from using an Assured Service Provider are as follows:
Enhanced Security: By working with an Assured Service Provider, your organisation can have confidence that their sensitive data and systems are being protected by a provider that has undergone rigorous security assessments. This can help mitigate the risk of cyber threats and potential data breaches.
Trustworthy Services: NCSC's assurance process validates the security measures and practices of Assured Service Providers. This validation instils trust, knowing that you are working with a provider that meets industry standards and best practices for cybersecurity.
Peace of Mind: You can have peace of mind knowing that Start Tech has been vetted by a reputable organisation (NCSC). This assurance can alleviate concerns about the security of your data and systems, allowing you to focus on your core business operations and doing what you do best.
Expert Guidance: Assured Service Providers have access to the NCSC's knowledge base, guidance, and best practices. This means that our clients benefit from the expertise and insights of both the Assured Service Provider and the NCSC, ensuring that you receive the most up-to-date and effective cybersecurity solutions.
Compliance Support: Many industries have specific regulatory requirements for data security. By choosing an Assured Service Provider, we can align your cybersecurity practices with these regulations more easily, reducing the risk of non-compliance and potential penalties.
Continuous Improvement: Assured Service Providers undergo regular assessments and feedback from the NCSC. This commitment to continuous improvement means that customers can expect Start Tech to continually enhance your security measures and stay ahead of emerging threats.
We are confident that our Assured Service Provider status will give our customers the confidence that they are working with a trusted partner that can help them to protect their organisations from cyber threats.
Managing Director Ian Groves said
"I am immensely proud of the whole team at Start Tech for achieving the Assured Service Provider certification. Unlike the Legal and Financial sectors, our industry lacks regulation and given the reliance on technology today, it is imperative we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standard to enable us to deliver exceptional advice and guidance to organisations we work with."
