Cyber Essentials Scotland: Certification & Costs

Essential cyber security for your SME

What would you do if your client database was stolen?

Or if you couldn’t access your email or PC?

The UK government started a new Cyber Essentials scheme in 2014 to help businesses protect themselves from hacking attacks. It is also mandatory for applying for some government tenders and contracts. We can help you to implement Cyber Essentials and give you peace of mind that your business is cyber secure.

All businesses, including SMEs, are vulnerable to attacks by malevolent hackers. Cyber criminals search out and exploit basic weaknesses in your IT systems and software. Perhaps you think that your business is not worth targeting?  Unfortunately, this is not true.  A recent government report shows that for businesses of all sizes, the cost of IT security breaches has doubled since 2015.

For small and medium-sized businesses, the most severe breaches cost can now reach as high as £310,800, up from £115,000 in 2014.  The latest government survey shows 46% of businesses suffered some form of cyber attack in the last twelve months.
