Why Cyber Essentials?
Sapphire PM holds valuable sensitive data on its clients and their tenants. It didn’t want to just rely on the strict procedures it already had in place and felt the Cyber Essentials certification would take them to the next level in security. It believes the certification will be a strong selling point for property owners looking for management companies in the future and help them win new business.
Spokesman Gary Cooper
“Going through the certification process was incredibly helpful. You can’t just rely on what you already have in place and think it won’t happen to your business. Having a Cyber Essentials certificate has become a must when it comes to applying for government contracts too – particularly the bigger ones. You are significantly less likely to be considered without being able to assure them you have been through the process and have the certificate to prove it.”
