Why is Cyber Essentials important for finance and insurance?

Growing risk

Financial and insurance institutions are key targets for cybercrime. Finance is where the money is and firms are 300 times more likely to be attacked than in other sectors.

Switch to remote working safely

Financial and insurance firms have been some of the quickest to adopt remote-first working, with over 25% of employees now favouring home working. Cyber Essentials can provide your business with the guidance to do it safely.

Customer assurance

There are few sectors in which customer trust is more important than finance and insurance. Cyber Essentials certification provides government-backed proof your business is safe to work with – crucial to retaining current customers and winning new ones.

Cyber Essentials certification only guarantees your business is working safely on the day of assessment. So how do you stay safe the rest of the time?
