Cyberattacks targeting data have fast become one of the biggest threats to businesses, especially during lockdown and post-pandemic.
Hackers have had a busy time over the past 18 months, taking advantage of the increase in working from home to breach systems that aren’t as tightly controlled.
If there’s even the tiniest hole in security set-ups, you can bet a scammer can find it and exploit it.
The issue of cyber security is a huge one for companies – that’s why it’s crucial that our clients know how seriously we take the safety of their data.
Salesbond has now received the highest level of certification from the Government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme, Cyber Essentials Plus, and the IASME governance standard.
Having these accreditations gives our customers confidence because it demonstrates that we’re a responsible company when it comes to cyber security. It gives them that added reassurance that our hybrid workforce is processing and managing their data efficiently and securely.
Companies, especially SMEs, might be tempted to use casual telesales agents working from home for a couple of days a week because they seem like a cheaper option. But they can be exposing themselves to a shocking lack of security when it comes to the handling of their data.
Salesbond is scaling up dramatically over the next 12 months so it’s important that we have the right tech in place with solid and secure processes to give us a secure foundation to grow the business.
Achieving the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation means we have thoroughly assessed every element of our systems to highlight any potential gaps and any areas of potential vulnerability. Closing the gaps is the best way to keep the hackers out.
It is important that we proactively demonstrate our commitment to data security and give our clients peace of mind. After all, they put their trust in us to work with them and represent them, so they need to be able to trust us with their data too.
