Why is obtaining Cyber Essentials Plus important for lone worker safety?
Having Cyber Essentials Plus certification, alongside our existing accreditations, provides our customers with confidence and reassurance that they have a trusted, ethical and secure partner that supports the safety of their lone working employees.
Having a range of cyber security measures in place, including Cyber Essentials Plus, increases our resilience against cyberattacks and other evolving security threats, ensuring that our lone worker protection service stays live at all times. Without these measures, lone workers could be at risk of their service being offline, leaving them stranded with no help during an emergency situation.
