“James Cowper engaged Peter Farrer of PFI Security to provide expert advice and guidance enabling
James Cowper to achieve certification to the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials Plus scheme. As a
large, regional accounting firm, we knew it was important for us to clearly demonstrate that we have
a keen interest in protecting our clients’ data. The Cyber Essentials Plus scheme enables us to
demonstrate that commitment to our clients and that we have taken appropriate steps to conform
to this recognised cyber security standard. Peter’s supported the internal IT Team in their activities
to achieve the Cyber Essentials Plus certification utilising his specific knowledge and experience.
Without Peter’s help it would have been significantly harder to obtain compliance and pass the
certification. As a result of Peter’s help we are now one of the first Accountancy firms in the country
to have achieved this cyber security accreditation.”
