How does Trustmarque keep up to date with cyber security trends?
Tara: “Research, communication and information sharing across the industry is key, as well as ensuring our people have access to the right training, support and qualifications to deliver our services. That’s why we recently joined the UK Cyber Scheme which provides the highest standard of Government approved examinations available, as well as training and material to support a career in Cyber. After several rounds of exams and other criteria, we’ve proven we have some of the best penetration testers in the UK.”
What does the cyber scheme membership give to our clients?
Tara Scholes: “Our membership into the Cyber Scheme has given us a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of cyber and to influence the cyber industry for the better. The scheme champions commonality and helps us look beyond the buzzwords – meaning the sector is more transparent and less confusing for clients. We are pushing ahead with holding the highest standard of industry-recognised qualifications and will continue to work with other organisations such as NCSC and CREST to help shape the future of cyber in the UK.
Through this we are working with customers to help them choose where they need to make investments to protect their organisations to close down any risks and gaps. We know that prevention is the best cure, and we are on a mission to support our clients on their road to cyber protection.”
It should be noted that governments and states are not the only culprits behind cybercrime. Criminal gangs also cost the UK billions of pounds, through attacks which target essential services, large corporations and citizens as well.
Your cyber security requirements are different to anyone else’s and with a myriad of cyber security suppliers and solutions, knowing which ones you need to protect your IT environment can be overwhelming. This is where Trustmarque can help.
