Holistic security consultancy and a member of the Malvern Cyber Security Cluster, Advent IM Ltd has announced its confirmed status as cyber security solution supplier to Her Majesty’s Government.
The announcement follows on from the company’s long-standing and successful supplier relationships with several Government departments.
The cyber certification scheme is administrated by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and enables certified cyber security suppliers to Government to be able to publicise the fact. This offers a distinct advantage to those businesses, further enables the Government’s plan to work with more SMEs and also supports the export of UK cyber security expertise.
Speaking about the news, Advent IM director Julia McCarron told Risk UK: “The supply of specialist IA consultancy services to the UK Government is the foundation upon which Advent IM was built and this remains a very important sector for us. As an SME, we value the relationships we have with Her Majesty’s Government’s departments and agencies. Being awarded this status is important for our continued partnership development in this area and we’re delighted that we’ve been recognised as an official cyber security solution provider.”
Advent IM joins other members of the Malvern Cyber Security Cluster who have been recognised for their contribution to UK Government cyber security by being part of this scheme.
