CHAS teams up with NormCyber to help contractors control cyber risk


More than 37,000 CHAS members can now benefit from Norm.’s award-winning managed security services

21 September 2022NormCyber, the award-winning managed security service provider, has teamed up with CHAS, the trusted expert in supply chain compliance, to offer CHAS members an easy and affordable way of managing cyber risk. The agreement provides CHAS members – which include more than 35,000 contractors and more than 2,000 client organisations across sectors including construction, facilities management and manufacturing, to name a few – with access to Norm.’s range of award-winning managed cyber security services at a preferential rate.

Norm.’s services are designed to meet the cyber security needs of mid-sized organisations that may not have the in-house expertise or resources to protect their operations from ever-more sophisticated threats. From today, CHAS members are entitled to exclusive discounts on the company’s all-encompassing Smartbloc. service, which provides complete visibility and real-time monitoring of a company’s people, processes and technology to reduce the risk of attack. Other available services include: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials PLUS certification; Cyber Safety and Phishing; and the Essential Cyber Security Bundle, which includes vulnerability management and 24/7 threat detection and response.

“CHAS has a strong track record of helping contractors and clients raise standards of risk management across a wide range of issues within multiple sectors,” says Pete Bowers, COO at Norm. “We are excited to partner with CHAS to extend this influence to cyber risk and help contractors within the sectors in which they operate raise their cyber security standards. 

“The construction industry, for example, has an unwanted reputation in the cyber underworld – high-value transactions make it an attractive target, while complex supply chains and the widespread use of third-party contractors give hackers plenty of attack options. Norm.’s services will help CHAS members within the construction industry and elsewhere shore up their cyber security defences cost-effectively and conveniently.”

Ian McKinnon, Managing Director at CHAS, adds: “Cyber security is an ongoing and ever-evolving challenge for our members, yet many organisations lack the internal expertise to manage this issue effectively in-house. We are delighted to team up with Norm to offer our members an easy and affordable solution. 

“Our agreement with Norm will enable CHAS contractors to tackle this challenge head-on and is yet another example of CHAS’s commitment to helping members simplify and streamline their risk management processes.”
