This accreditation is recognition of and testament to Neil and the business’s focus on maintaining the highest levels of IT and data security, at a time when SMEs across the country are falling victim to increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.

Following our suggested enhancements, the business is now fully compliant with this UK Government backed scheme, has further strengthened their defense against cyber threats, and has also now gained over £25k in cyber insurance.
