The London Digital Security Centre (LDSC) has established a pilot of the UK’s first ever police-backed cyber-security certification plan.

Guy Ferguson who is the chief executive officer at Secured by Design opined that Police crime prevention initiatives have always given a creative and innovative response to developing and emerging crime patterns. He expressed feelings of delight in working with LDSC to help eradicate the cyber-security from the society.
Chris Diogenous who is the chief commercial officer at the LDSC stated that almost 50% of the small corporation in the UK have been the victims of cyber-crime in the last one year and this can now be kept from happening by simple measures that this initiative has to offer. He said that it is for the first time that UK corporations can proudly demonstrate that they have taken all the essential measures to protect their and reduce their overall susceptibility to cyber-crime.
