“With over USD 1 billion investment in cybersecurity every year, security is a top priority at Microsoft. We view cybersecurity as one of the most important aspects for any economy that is rapidly digitizing and support the Cyber Essentials Standard as an effective foundation for every SMB or larger organizations with concerns about the security standards applied within their own supply chains. As well, these standards are a good first step in driving compliance with GDPR as they address pivotal security safeguards mandatory for an effective GDPR strategy.”
– Charlotte Burke, Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Canada
