Why is Cyber Essentials important for manufacturing?

Heightened risk

Manufacturing is an attractive target for cybercriminals. So much so, 48% of UK manufacturers report suffering a breach that cost them time or money. And, with many back-office staff working from home on unsecured networks and devices, the risk is only growing.

Public Sector Contracts

Government contracts are an important source of revenue for many manufacturers.  However, to bid for most government or MOD work, you’ll need to be Cyber Essentials certified.

Customer assurance

Cyber Essentials certification provides government-backed evidence that your business takes cybersecurity seriously – making you an attractive partner for new and existing customers.

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?
