Cyber-security badge would encourage higher standards and better inform consumers

Boris Johnson should establish a ‘Mayor’s Standard’ of cyber security for businesses to help combat online fraud in the capital, says Conservative London Assembly member Roger Evans.

Companies that sign up to the Mayor’s Standard hallmark would have their company name published on the GLA website and could use Mayoral branding to promote their security credentials.

Assembly Member Evans says the Mayor should also back calls to make it compulsory for companies to declare when they have suffered a cyberattack.

A minimum standard would better inform consumers about which companies in London are taking cyber security seriously.

Streaming technology has already been trialled by West Midlands Fire Service and similar apps are currently used in Sacramento, California, and Victoria, Australia.

A new report by Tony Arbour shows the app could quickly direct the most appropriate response to the exact location of a live incident and may help in the investigative process afterwards.
