Cyber security specialist CySure Ltd has announced that its Virtual Online Security Officer (VOSO) has been accepted onto the Government’s G-Cloud 10 digital marketplace. With the latest iteration of the G-Cloud framework, CySure has extended the proven capabilities of the company’s VOSO online solution to protect organisations against the growing threat of cybercrime. It has mapped the security component of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) into VOSO, providing an easy to follow, staged approach to GDPR along with all the policies and training videos necessary to complete the compliance process.
Organisations today, particularly those in the government and public sector, operate in a constantly changing environment where cybercrime is a real threat. Latest statistics from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport reveal that four in ten businesses and two in ten charities have experienced a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months. However, only 27% of businesses and 21% of charities have a formal cyber security policy or set of policies in place(i).
Joe Collinwood, Chief Executive Officer of CySure said, “Research from GCHQ reveals that 80% of cyber-attacks are easily prevented when staff are trained regularly, and the right policies are in place. Managing risk from inside the organisation is vital and relies upon a consistent, dynamic process with continual training. Our VOSO solution interprets government and industry security standards in simple terms and outlines the steps to take to protect online equipment and stored data at the fraction of the cost of a human counterpart. We are delighted that VOSO has been accepted onto the government’s G-Cloud framework, the go-to place for trusted technology solutions from suppliers that are thoroughly vetted, can demonstrate clear ways of working and transparent pricing. Our customers in the public sector can depend on our expertise to create a robust, best-practice formula to help keep their organisations safe.”
