tiQtoQ is pleased to announce it has gained Cyber Essentials certification from the IASME Consortium. Cyber Essentials is a national UK government scheme that certifies our commitment to effective security and demonstrates we have in place the security controls needed to protect ourselves against cyber-attacks. In the UK it is a must-have for anyone wanting to do business with government and local authorities.

Peter Jones, the CEO of tiQtoQ said:
“As we develop and grow tiQtoQ it’s important for us to not only ensure our business has in place robust security measures that meet national standards but to demonstrate to our clients that we take their security seriously.”

The next steps for tiQtoQ is to seek the CE Plus certification and then use this as a gateway to further security certifications such as ISO27001.

Security certifications are an invaluable asset for businesses of all sizes, especially in the Tech Sector. They provide objective proof of an organisation’s commitment to security best practices, bolstering its credibility and trustworthiness in the eyes of clients, partners, and regulatory bodies. They can also demonstrate the company’s commitment to secure operations.

Certifications assist in identifying and mitigating potential security risks, thus reducing the likelihood of data breaches and their associated costs both financial and reputational. They also ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

Internally, security certifications instil a culture of safety and awareness among employees, promoting better understanding and adoption of security protocols. This ethos permeates the business resulting in a strong defence against increasingly sophisticated attack vectors.
