Watch: Webinar – is your cybersecurity vendor certified?

Why DO so many cyber security vendors operate without the correct certification? It’s a big question and all too rarely discussed.

Many vendors claim to align with ISO27001 or NCSC Cyber Essentials – but that isn’t the same as being certified. 

Why does it matter – and what does it mean for customers? Watch our recorded webinar to find out what certification means – and why it’s a solid foundation for digital trust. 

Discussing the issue are Paul Maxwell, Director at Stratia Cyber, Victoria Guillot, Owner of Awareness on Message and named one of the Top 30 Women of Influence in Cyber Security 2022, and Ram Sethi, Director of Cyber Spectre.

Learn why accreditation is so crucial for vendors who trade on a reputation for keeping data safe – and  what it means for customers.
