Our service focuses on security, strategy and assurance so that we can design security systems that meet the needs of our clients.

Under GDPR, all businesses that wish to provide goods and services to EU residents are required to conform to the requirements GDPR lays down. All businesses are deemed in scope unless they prove otherwise. Undertaking Cyber Essentials and IASME Governance, the latter of which includes GDPR requirements, is a good way to visibly show your customers that you have put things in place to meet the Regulation.
Organisations assess themselves against five basic security controls and a qualified assessor verifies the information provided.
All the self assessment questions are available to download for free in advance. Cyber Essentials certification includes automatic cyber liability insurance for any UK organisation who certifies their whole organisation and have less than £20m annual turnover (terms apply).
