The right controls for your business data

Pink Connect can help put solutions in place

Every business handles personal data; however, all businesses must have the right controls and procedures in place to handle the data in a safe and secure environment, that is compliant with the law.

The UK Government has created the Cyber Essentials scheme to guide companies in putting the right basic security controls in place to handle personal data, in a way that complies with current legislation.

Defined scope for your company

Contained in these five categories are 34 x questions, relating to various controls and procedures that are recommended to be in place in the “defined scope of the company”. These must be individually addressed. Following completion of this, an external scan is then required. This is designed to identify vulnerabilities on the Internet facing side of the business infrastructure.

Cyber Essentials provides a framework for companies to take the necessary steps to protect themselves from the known threats concerning the storage of personal data, such as Malware, theft, accidental or intentional tampering with, or the corruption of personal data.

What Businesses Say About Us

The response to my out of hours incident, where contractors had severed all Tele-comms into one of our sites was outstanding. Replying to emails throughout Saturday and Sunday, resulting in an engineer being on site before 9am on Monday morning.

A special mention for Jack Elliott who dealt with this incident.


I have just migrated my business phone to Pink Connect and have been so impressed by the professionalism and responsiveness of the teams. They have kept me updated at all steps, been proactive in providing solutions, uploaded my settings and provided me with training on the system. Being a small business I know how vital it is to deliver excellent service to customers and Pink Connect definitely make me feel that my custom is valued by them.

Thank you.

Omar sorted out the issue I was experiencing quickly and explained how I can fix the issue myself should it happen again. He made some changes to the system so in theory it won’t happen again.
