With the threat of cyber crime a reality for all organisations, and those dealing with data and money in the professional sector particularly at risk, there has never been a more important time to make sure your business is cyber secure.
Cyber Essentials is the government endorsed standard of cyber security. Businesses that have achieved the accreditation can display the Cyber Essentials badge on their website and marketing materials as a way of displaying to their customers and prospective clients that they can be trusted to take cyber security seriously. It is now also a requirement for any business that wants to tender for government contracts.
Recognising the importance of protecting their systems and client data Worcestershire based solicitors Hallmark Hulme retained their Cyber Essentials accreditation. To ensure they were compliant with Cyber Essentials regulation, Hallmark Hulme sought the advice and support of EBC Group, who were able to ensure that they had the latest IT and cyber security protection in place, as well as a resilient disaster recovery solution.
Rebecca Widdowson, Managing Partner at Hallmark Hulme commented “Cyber security is massively important to a business like ours. We hold a lot of personal and confidential information about our clients; we also handle a substantial sum of money through the business on a daily basis. Businesses like ours are seen as a soft target to cyber criminals. EBC Group have provided us with a series of firewalls and anti-virus protection meaning that our information and client data is much more secure and protected from cyber criminals. We recently obtained Cyber Essentials which is a government backed scheme which establishes that our systems are well protected.”
