"We won a major tender where we needed to achieve ISO 27001 cybersecurity accreditation. And again, the Superfast guys were a large part of the project to help us to one, win the tender and secondly, achieve the accreditation. And I undoubtedly don't believe that we have got that accreditation if it wasn't for the guys walking us through and really helping us achieve the standard."
