Season's Greetings from GoPro Case Management

Season’s Greetings

GoPro wishes you and yours a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year. We look forward to working with you in 2016.

GoPro is live on the G-Cloud 7 Digital Marketplace

GoPro is available on the UK Cabinet Office’s Digital Marketplace, the G-Cloud 7. The aim of the Digital Marketplace is to make it simpler, clearer and faster for those in the UK public sector to buy what they need, and G-Cloud 7 is the latest government framework for their digital marketplace.

Government frameworks are agreements between the government and suppliers. The basic terms of use are agreed by both parties following a formal Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) procurement process. This saves public sector organisations and suppliers the time and cost traditionally associated with individual procurement contracts. By G-Cloud accredidation, GoPro can easily be procured by UK Government bodies, as they can rest assured the software meets the requirements of the government’s IT strategy.

GoPro has been Cyber Essentials certified

Cyber Essetials

We are happy to announce that GoPro has achived Cyber Essentials certification.

The Cyber Essentials Scheme has been developed by UK government and industry in order to provide a sound foundation of cyber hygiene measures, in order to significantly reduce an organisation’s vulnerability and mitigate the risks from internet-based threats.

The Cyber Essential Sheme covers the core requirements for firewalls and Internet gateways, security configuration, user access controls, malware and patch management. Systems that fall within the scope of the Cyber Essentials Scheme include devices such as PCs, laptops and mobile devices, as well as email, Web and application services and Internet-based services.

By successfully certifying against the Cyber Essentials Scheme, GoPro has demonstrated that we have implemented measures to lower the risk of serious data and financial loss, as well as demonstrate to our customers we have taken steps to be fundamentally cyber safe.

GoPro UK Business Development Director, Lou Valdini, said: “The Cabinet Office’s ‘Cloud First’ policy is driving a new era in UK Public Sector ICT procurement. This policy addresses the need to make financial savings by introducing more nimble, flexible, and innovative solutions from SMEs which solve pressing line-of-business problems and deliver on Government policy, but which can be delivered quickly and cost-effectively” Mr Valdini continued, “We have taken our 20 years of case management expertise and innovation, which is helping global supranational financial institutions and insurers solve problems such as large-scale financial fraud, and applied it to the UK Public Sector, which will now benefit from a reduction in the estimated £45 billion of fraud and error debt. Our UK Public Sector customers are now telling us they are ready to procure GoPro’s solutions and services through the CloudStore.”
