Sims Williams awarded certificate for cyber security

Back to news

With new ‘data breaches’ seemingly a daily news story, we are delighted to announce that we have again been awarded our Cyber Essentials Certificate by our IT Support Advisors, LMS.

Cyber Essentials is a United Kingdom certification scheme designed to show businesses such as ours have a suitable level of protection in cyber security through annual assessments and security checks.

Backed by the UK government and overseen by the National Cyber Security Centre. It encourages businesses to adopt good practice in information security. Cyber Essentials also includes an assurance framework and a simple set of security controls to protect information from threats coming from the internet.

Richard Moores, owner of the business says ‘At Sims Williams we take Cyber Security extremely seriously, particularly as we hold a tremendous amount of necessary personal information for buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants’.

He goes on to say, ‘with the support and guidance of LMS, who have been advising us on IT Security since 2010, we continue to monitor and improve all aspects of our Cyber Security which is a particularly hot topic just now’.

It’s just one of the ways Sims Williams are improving their service, and are again leading the way in an ever-changing environment.

As one of the leading, privately-owned independent estate agents in West Sussex, Sims Williams continue to treat every property as unique and create a tailored, personal service for each and every client, with first class cyber security.

What our clients say

Stress Free and easy to deal with

I found a property online and viewed the same day and the following day. Nothing was to much trouble, very accommodating around viewing times. The application process was straight forward and made the moving process very stress free. Would highly recommend Sims Williams and Jo, very easy to deal with.

No Hesitation Recommending Sims Williams

Sims Williams have always provided constructive development advice on various schemes for us. Their local knowledge on both house type demand and suitable blends, together with their extensive research of comparable prices, gives me great confidence in the information they provide. Having successfully marketed our Holly Tree Grove development of 7 executive homes, I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Sims Williams. Their local knowledge, proactive marketing and advice on values was second to none.

AMAZING!

The whole team in Walberton did a fantastic job. Despite a few problems, they worked so hard to get the purchase completed. I was kept informed at all times. Lin in particular worked very hard to ensure the purchase did not fall through.
