Mitigate welcomes Digital Scotland latest steps to help small businesses mitigate their cyber risks with the launch of the Cyber Resilience Voucher Scheme, worth up to £1500 for Scotland's SMEs.
The scheme is one part of the Digital Scotland Business Excellence Partnership, which has endeavoured to provide proactive solutions to Scottish small businesses, in terms of training, skills and infrastructure.
Any small business, with links to Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise or Business Gateway, based in Scotland, is eligible for the scheme, where you can get a qualified cyber security expert, like Mitigate's team of ethical hackers, to assess their systems and reach the standard of the UK Government's Cyber Essentials Scheme.
Digital Scotland have published some information, which can be downloaded here.
Mitigate also ran a free seminar for firms based in Scotland on June 1st 2016, on the Cyber Essentials Scheme, and how it works. If you want to arrange a webinar with one of our Cyber Essentials team, please email [email protected]
