The problems for your clients

Cybersecurity compliance comes with a price tag.

Growing need

Public and private sector tenders, and industry bodies, are increasingly demanding that businesses hold a valid Cyber Essentials certificate.

Difficulty to respond

Compliance is a tricky field. Whilst DIY is always an option, without expertise it can be the most time consuming route in preparing for certification.

Consultant referrals

Consultancy now typically costs from £1,000 +VAT per day. This can be a non-starter when many firms are unable or unwilling to make such an investment.

The problems for your practice

Your clients have a need. Referrals are a struggle. How can you respond?

It’s not your field

It’s likely you’re not a cybersecurity expert. Your practice may need to retrain a colleague, or recruit a new one, to service this client need.

It’s an unknown market

Knowledge in a field doesn’t immediately translate into an ability to sell it. This creates an extra layer of overheads - taking the solution to the client.

Competition

Some larger practices are expanding their consultancy services into this area. This is creating a competitive pressure through a broader client offering.
