Reassure your customers that you’re cyber secure

Reassure your customers that you’re cyber secure

Phishing, hacking and ransomware attacks are getting more and more common. Cyber criminals around the world are constantly on the hunt for ways to access your business data and then exploit it for financial gain.

Such an attack could disrupt your productivity and damage your reputation at best –  or lose all your key data and cost you a huge amount of money at worse. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and Corbel can help you protect yourself, and your reputation, from these risks.

The government has been finding ways to make the UK one of the safest places in the world to do business online. You may have seen their ‘Cyber Essentials’ badge on the web pages of various companies. This scheme was launched in 2014 and is designed to ensure your company is cyber secure.

Being certified to display this badge on your website, and appearing in the ‘Cyber Essentials’ online directory is an important way to reassure your customers, and potential new business, that their data, money and own cyber security is in safe hands when they work with you.

Corbel can make you Cyber Secure

As a recognised Cyber Essentials accreditation body, Corbel is ideally placed to help keep these nasty (but unfortunately frequent) methods of cyber attack away from your business. We can teach you the fundamental technical security controls you need in place to ward them off every time. And after we’ve gotten you Cyber Essentials certified, you can show the world that you’re safe.

Even the best firewalls and cyber defences can be undermined by a lack of knowledge when it comes to cyber security. If a cunning hacker can do something as basic as guess a password, they’re through your defences. Any IT system you or your staff use to work from can be vulnerable to attack. Cyber Essentials is the first line of defence against these basic but potentially devastating attacks.

Selected by industry experts, the technical controls within the scheme reflect those covered by well-established standards, such as the ISO/IEC 27000 series, the Information Security Forum’s Standard of Good Practice for Information Security and the Standard for Information Assurance for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.

As our businesses rely ever more on the internet, cyber threats are going to become a bigger menace. But if you take reasonable precautions, they don’t have to be. Meanwhile, being able to display the reassuring Cyber Essentials icon on your website is going to be vital, and maybe even necessary, in keeping and finding new customers.

Corbel will get you Cyber Essential certified for £395 + VAT – Visit to find out more.
