Cyber Essentials For Hybrid Organisations: Why It’s So Important

Cyber Essentials Edinburgh

The hybrid working model is becoming increasingly popular. Businesses are turning to this model to balance the improved work-life benefits to employees with the need for face to face communication. If you’re planning to bring in a hybrid approach to working, it is crucial that you factor in cyber security.

Cybercrime is on the rise, and there are unique risks associated with remote working. You will need to ensure your cyber security is up to the task, and one of the best ways to do so is by becoming Cyber Essentials accredited. Here are some of the critical reasons Cyber Essentials is vital for your business.

Understanding The Cyber Crime Risks

There are many types of cybercrime, and increasingly, hackers are becoming more and more sophisticated in their operations. It can help to ensure you understand the risks posed to your business and the ways you can mitigate them.

By gaining a Cyber Essentials certification, you will be protected against a majority of cyber threats. It is vital to pair Cyber Essentials with a robust cyber security service like the one offered here at Texaport. We strive to ensure our cyber security services provide customers with all they need to ensure their hybrid working model thrives in a safe and secure way.

Show Customers You Take Cyber Security Seriously

Gaining accreditation in Cyber Essentials will allow you to show your certification on your website. This will show your customers that you are a business that takes cyber security seriously and that your company will be responsible and safe with their data. In an increasingly competitive market, gaining a Cyber Essentials certification can be invaluable to help you stand out among the crowd.

Educate Your Team On Cyber Security

When you have employees working remotely, it is crucial that they understand their responsibilities regarding cyber security. By going through the Cyber Essentials certification process, you will be able to identify areas for improvement, and thorough training for your team may be one of them. You should always choose high-quality training that will empower your employees to keep their data safe in both their professional and private lives.

Choosing Government-Backed Accreditation

By choosing a government-backed accreditation process like Cyber Essentials, you will show potential customers that you are committed to getting the highest level of protection. It will also allow you to bid for government contracts, as many of these require Cyber Essentials to be completed before they will be accepted.

Gain A Deeper Understanding Of Your Cyber Security Position

By completing the Cyber Essentials process, you will gain a deeper understanding of your business’s cyber security. This can be invaluable to help you adapt and grow your business security. It can also help to partner with a company that can help you navigate the process and ensure you get the most out of the certification.

If you’re keen to take the next step towards top-level cyber security for your business, get in touch with us here at Texaport to start the ball rolling today.
