Chamber Cyber Essentials
We know that our members in Shropshire are aware of the significant threat of cyber-crime to their organisation. Nearly 40% of businesses in the UK reported having a cyber breach or attack in the last twelve months and of these businesses one in five lost money, data or other assets. Consumers and clients are also becoming more aware of this growing threat and organisations need to prove that they are taking cyber security seriously.
So, what can you do to help protect your organisation from cyber-crime?
We are delighted to announce the launch of Chamber Cyber Essentials in partnership with the British Chambers of Commerce and IASME. Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective Government backed scheme that helps protect organisations, whatever their size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks. Certification via Chamber Cyber Essentials will:
- Attract new business with the promise that you have cyber security measures in place.
- Reassure your supply chain that cyber security and data protection is an important priority for your organisation.
- Demonstrate to the ICO that you safeguard sensitive data and are on the right path towards GDPR compliance.
- Allow you to bid for tenders and contracts that require Cyber Essentials certification.
Members can access a discount on certification alongside a package of training, free cyber security guidance and the Cyber Essentials Readiness Tool.
