According to recent figures published by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the Cyber Security Vendors market in the UK has grown by over 50% in the last five years, generating almost £6 billion of revenue.
40% of businesses have not taken any action to identify their cyber security risks, leaving them vulnerable to cyber attacks / criminals and while 54% of businesses are seeking external help to deal with cyber security threats, this rapid growth means that it can often be confusing for consumers to find a digital security provider who they can trust to deliver a product or service that meets their needs.
Given this, there is obviously a clear need for some clarity in this area. Police CPI, in collaboration with BSI, has developed a certification scheme for Cyber Security Vendors. The scheme seeks to ensure an easily identifiable platform of best practice across the digital landscape, a unique and recognisable certification that will assist those seeking a clear differential in a very crowded and ever-changing digital security marketplace.
