Digital Scotland Business Excellence Partnership Cyber Resilience Voucher Scheme

To help boost Cyber Essentials in Scotland, the Digital Scotland Business Excellence Partnership have announced 200 vouchers for SMEs to help them achieve Cyber Essentials.  Each voucher can be worth up to £1,500.

The application must be by referral through Business Gateway, Scottish Enterprise or HIE (Highlands and Islands Enterprise) if you are an existing client .  If you have no existing relationship with any of these organisations then you will need to contact Business Gateway on 0131 516 5035 and ask them to refer you.

Our Certification Bodies, especially our four Certification Bodies based in Scotland (Aggress, BC TechnologiesNetHost Legislation and Truststream), can take you through the steps.

The criteria to eligible are as follows:

  • Based in Scotland;
  • Are V.A.T registered
  • Meet the SME definition
  • Have a relationship with either Business Gateway; HIE or SE

As the voucher is paid out to the company once the work has been completed you will have to demonstrate that you have the financial means to cover the costs of your chosen supplier.
