ISO Quality Services Limited (‘ISO’) and the National Cyber Skills Centre (‘NCSC’) are delighted to be joining forces over the next few months to demystify cyber security options for businesses.
In a series of articles to be published over 4 weeks from September, ISO and NCSC will be clarifying how Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus, IASME and ISO 27001 can help businesses tackle cyber security issues. Crucially we will be highlighting the similarities and differences between the various standards and helping businesses establish the appropriate standard for them to implement. The hot topic of GDPR will also be covered looking at how the various standards support the regulatory needs of the GDPR framework.
Following the series of articles, a questionnaire will be circulated to West Midlands based businesses to find out more about businesses’ knowledge of the standards. The results will be used to formulate one of the biggest white papers on cyber security knowledge in the West Midlands. These results will then be delivered at an informative breakfast/networking event in November. Businesses will be able to sign up to one to ones with experts in the various standards to find out which one they should work towards.
Dr Stephen Wright of the National Cyber Skills Centre comments, “We have noticed for a while that whilst cyber security is a hot topic in the news, businesses are often confused about how to protect themselves. There are various standards out there but we don’t think anyone has ever clarified what they all do and how they fit together. We are aiming to resolve that and make it easier for businesses to understand.”
Jennifer Appleton, Operations Director at ISO QSL added “Whilst we specialise in offering ISO 27001 for businesses, we appreciate that it’s not necessarily appropriate for all businesses. By teaming up with the National Cyber Skills Centre we can help businesses make the right choices for them, whether that is by implementing 27001 or not.”
