The Trusted Partners scheme is part of an effort to encourage businesses to implement enhanced security that fits realistic business needs, and looks ahead to the introduction of basic standards of cybersecurity across Scotland.
Put together by the SBRC, with the endorsement of Police Scotland, Trusted Partners is made up of a group of companies working in Scotland who are Cyber Essentials Certifying Bodies. As a Trusted Partner, Commissum are experts in advising and certifying companies on achieving the core standard of Cyber Essentials, and Cyber Essentials Plus for those that require the enhanced standard.
Police Scotland and the SBRC have named their Trusted Partners in Cybersecurity to give Scottish businesses a clear idea of who to approach when seeking cybersecurity expertise and advice. Commissum’s Trusted Partner status reinforces our efforts to consistently go beyond for our clients in everything we do, as detailed in our company values of integrity, commitment and excellence, with Cyber Essentials remaining a key first step for businesses on the road to better security.
News of Commissum’s inclusion as a Trusted Partner comes in anticipation of the Scottish Government’s announcement of increased support for the Cyber Essentials scheme in Scotland, expected later this month.
Commissum CEO, Martin Finch, had this to say on receiving news of Commissum’s Trusted Partner status: “It’s fantastic to have Commissum’s ongoing provision of cybersecurity expertise and advice, with a focus particularly on Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus, recognised through our inclusion as Trusted Partners of the SBRC and Police Scotland. Commissum are extremely proud to be a Scottish company and this recognition is testament to the high-quality work and independent advice our consultants and security professionals provide to our clients day in, day out, and we look forward to the Scottish Government’s announcement of reaffirming its support of the Cyber Essentials Scheme in Scotland.”
