“Highly recommend John Phillips. We’ve recently had to claim on our insurance due to the loss of our websites and the whole process has been SO efficient. Every company should have cyber insurance”
In order to demonstrate your commitment to cyber safety you may wish to assess how you measure up to different standards across industries. Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme set up to help businesses to take control of their cyber security. However, so far only 22,000 certificates have been issued. Many businesses are wary of undertaking this task but it is based around self assessment and relatively simple so can be an excellent starting point for your cyber risk management strategy.
If you would like an internationally recognised certification you can also look into the ISO27001. This is also not an unreachable standard, even for smaller organisations, but may be more suitable if you have a lot of dealings overseas.
There are many organisations that can help you obtain these certifications. These certifications can provide reassurance to your clients that you take cyber threats seriously and can be a trusted partner in their supply chain.
These certifications can also assist you in obtaining insurance. Some providers even offer a discount on your premium if you hold one of these certifications.
At JMP we are proud to be Cyber Essentials certified as we are committed to the highest levels of professionalism as broker.
