Practising what we preach!

Sutcliffe & Co Insurance Brokers was the first insurance business in the UK to achieve Cyber Essentials, and the team is delighted to announce that we have now achieved our Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

Duncan Sutcliffe, director, Sutcliffe & Co, commented: “We take cyber security very seriously and have been waxing lyrical for years to anyone that will vaguely listen about the benefits of Cyber Essentials. Being keen on the ‘practice what you preach’ mantra, we took the decision to take the next step ourselves and invest the time and effort needed for the ‘plus’ level of Cyber Essentials. This should help give our clients and the insurers we work with the additional peace of mind that Cyber Essentials Plus provides.

“Being cyber ‘hygenic’ is not rocket science but is incredibly important!”
