Cleveland Scott York and its predecessor firms have always held themselves to high professional and business standards to protect the interests of our clients. We know that to deserve your business we must not only carry out our professional responsibilities to the highest standards, but safeguard your data and your interests.

The following external auditing bodies have accredited our processes and safeguards:

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed IT Security standard designed to help businesses guard themselves against cyber threats.  Cyber Essential Plus builds on the basic level by adding a hands-on technical verification of systems by external assessors.

The IASME Governance Standard builds on the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation, and sets a high standard of IT and Data Security designed for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.  Cleveland Scott York holds the IASME Gold accreditation, which means that it has had on-site auditing, and provides a similar level of assurance to the internationally recognised ISO 27001.
