Exertis to offer security audit service

Exertis has announced a new security audit service that resellers can take advantage of for their customers. This follows Exertis’s own Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) Gold qualification, and its recognition as an accredited certification body of IASME. Four of its professional services team are qualified as assessors to carry out audits.

Exertis will offer a packaged service that delivers three accreditations: Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus and IASME Gold at a fixed cost of £1,800.

Jason Hill, Exertis sales director, security, said:

Cybersecurity remains a key issue for businesses. It’s essential that companies have the right defences in place to protect against today’s threats and take steps to mitigate against potential data breaches. SMEs are particularly vulnerable as they often don’t have the necessary resources or expertise to minimise the risks.

In addition, more and more companies are looking for their suppliers to have a recognised cyber security certification before engaging with them, so it’s becoming increasingly important, particularly with GDPR now in force.”

Exertis accessors can provide the audit for the end user with the opportunity for the reseller to sell additional services and solutions if one of their customers fails the audit.
