Why Cyber Essentials?
The business has been going for 40 years but recently found itself having to deal with a number of cases of attempted cyber fraud. One included a fake invoice emailed to its accounts department. The incidents prompted CEO Luke Verrall to look at how to improve cyber security at the company and train staff in detecting fraudulent emails.
Spokesman CEO Luke Verrall
“ Staff have always been vigilant but these fraudsters are becoming more and more adept at getting round security systems. Training the staff through a government recognised cyber security scheme meant we have the most up to date knowledge of how these people operate, what to look out for and how to prevent cyber attacks.
“It doesn’t just give us peace of mind but it is something we tell our potential customers we have in place so they know we take their security as seriously as we take our own. I am sure it will help when it comes to winning contracts in the future when businesses know we have national recognition for our cyber security.”
