Portland Financial Planning Becomes Cyber Security Certified

It is an unfortunate fact that, nowadays, scammers and fraudsters are very much “at large”, using a variety of methods to con and obtain information on people. The internet has provided these people with another avenue to achieve their goals and so it is essential that we must all take the necessary steps to protect ourselves from any invasions of privacy.

Given the nature of the industry we work in, security is of the utmost importance to us. As our clients, we know that you expect personal information to be kept confidential at all times and we have always strived to ensure this is done.

And now, we are happy to announce that we have gone even further in this mission by obtaining a cyber security certificate, as can be seen by the ‘Certified’ logo displayed throughout in the footer of our website.

What does this mean for me?

This latest addition will not directly affect you in any way and you can continue using our website as you normally would. It simply means that any of your data held with us is more secure than ever before. To obtain this certification, we have used Cyber Essentials, a Government backed scheme which helps us to guard ourselves against the most common cyber threats and demonstrates our commitment to cyber security.

If you would like to know more about this, or about how we store your personal information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
