Following updates to the General Data Protection Regulator (GDPR) which came into force on May 25, 2018, designed to modernise laws that protect the personal information of individuals, YSS (Your Support Service) is delighted to announce it has received cyber accreditation from Cyber Essentials.

Cyber Essentials aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to service users that they take cyber security seriously. The accreditation was gained and independently verified through self-assessment, and a qualified assessor verified the information provided.

Lorraine Preece, YSS Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to announce that we are now cyber accredited. A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes at YSS to ensure we are taking the right steps to becoming GDPR compliant and are working to the highest standards, offering service users and those we work with the best possible support and experience available.”
