Our Cyber Essentials partner network brings a level of assurance to small businesses who don’t know where to start. It is limited to those who are accredited to deliver the Cyber Essentials scheme, and who operate within our region. If that’s you, please do contact us about opportunities to join the team as vacancies arise. But we know that other companies may wish to spread awareness within the South West of their own cyber resilience offerings. We do not directly recommend individual products or suppliers on this basis, but are very happy to make such offerings known to our members.
If you want to talk to us about collaboration, you can find more details on our membership page.
A list of current collaborators is shown below.
