CyberSolace gain Digital Security Provider accreditation

CyberSolace is one of the latest organisations to be recognised as a Digital Security Provider by the Police Digital Security Centre (Police DSC).

With 65,000 cyber security attacks on UK SMEs daily, and 41% of UK consumers claiming they will never return to a business that has had a security breach, investing in cyber security has never been more important.

With this ever increasing threat to SMEs, who often struggle to find the expertise and funding to implement effective cyber security, the Police DSC developed the Digital Security Provider certification scheme in collaboration with BSI (British Standards Institution). The scheme helps SMEs make informed decisions when choosing a vendor and promotes vendors who take time to understand their customers and deliver solutions that are tailored to their needs.

The certification recognises that CyberSolace can provide solutions in the field of digital security which genuinely solve their clients’ problems.

Cheyne Marley, Cyber Development Officer at the Police DSC, said: “Hani and the team at CyberSolace should be congratulated on their commitment to becoming certified as a trusted Police DSC Digital Security Provider. Hani and his team have a track record of providing security advice, which supports the Police DSC objective of enabling UK business to improve their cyber security. I look forward to working with the team to develop our relationship in order to improve cyber security within the UK’s businesses.”

CyberSolace, said: “We are very proud to have been awarded the Digital Security Provider certification by the UK Police Digital Security Centre. After several months of vetting and assessment we have finally got our badge! We are very much looking forward to being part of the family, working alongside the police, to help the business community improve their cyber posture and bolster their defences to cybercrime.”
