“IT Governance did a brilliant job of helping me secure Cyber Essentials certification. Melanie Hammond first answered my call when I phoned to ask about Cyber Essentials, last year. She gave me loads of advice and explained why it would be a good choice to go with IT Governance, which I did. I then called about a month ago, and even though it wasn’t a new sale, she still was happy to help give me some advice, and linked me with the CE servicing team to get on with the CE submission. It’s been a great experience for me, and she was a large part of that, so thank you!”

- Chris Metcalf, Aston Reach Ltd


“The process of certification through IT Governance was straight-forward with really helpful contacts right from initial consultation to the final certification. The process was completed quickly and very cost effectively.”

- Milesh Patel, Director of Solutions, ICONICS
