In our growing internet age, ensuring security and protection of this virtual data is of vital importance to us and our clients.”

Gore continued “We work hard to implement thorough policies and working practices that keep our business at the top of its game when it comes to ensuring all the data we collect is handled and stored in the safest possible way.  Myself, and everyone at ConsortiQ is proud to have achieved the Government set Cyber Essentials Security accreditation as it reflects the level of importance that we place on keeping our customers data safe and secure.”
