As a result of our commitment to online security, we are delighted to announce that Perform Partners have been awarded with the Cyber Essentials Plus certification. 

Increasing daily reports of online fraud are prevalent across many news outlets. “68% of business leaders feel their cyber security risks are increasing.” Accenture, 2019. Meanwhile, “45% of breaches featured hacking, 17% involved malware and 22% involved phishing.” Verizon, 2020. 

We maintain our commit to safeguarding all personal and financial information from online fraud. 

What is Cyber Essentials? 

Cyber Essentials Plus helps an organisation protect itself against the most common cyber-attack and demonstrates its’ commitment to cyber security. It is a simple but effective, government-backed scheme designed to help organisations, of all sizes, protect themselves against cyber-attacks. 

Cyber attacks come in varying forms and are increasingly common. They are however often carried out by relatively unskilled, entry-level attackers who have learnt the very basic of cyber skills on the dark web. These opportunists will then try out their new skills on an organisation with a vulnerable weak spot, where usually an essential or basic considerations has been missed. 

Getting the basics right and maintaining these standards is of vital importance because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark an organisation out as an easy target for more in-depth attention and larger attacks. 

Why is cyber security important to a business and technical change consultancy like Perform Partners? 

Not only is cyber security important to us, to protect ourselves and safeguard our organisation but also of high importance to understand the risks and threats posted by cyber criminals. We work with a whole host of organisations. By understanding potential threats or risk factors, we can support the relevant teams by mitigating any threats and remain security conscious.
