The London Digital Security Centre has launched a new certification scheme for businesses which, it says, will help businesses better protect their data and be less vulnerable to cyber crime.

Two new certificates being awarded by the London Digital Security Centre are Secured by Design – Police Preferred Specification for cyber security suppliers and Digitally Aware – Secured By Design for businesses.

Founded by the Mayor of London as a joint venture with the Metropolitan Police Service and the City of London Police, the London Digital Security Centre works alongside the National Fraud and Cyber Crime Reporting Centre (ActionFraud). The centre today launched a new digital certification scheme to help businesses in securing their data and to reduce their exposure to cyber criminals.
