When RDS Global Ltd, based in Derby, were looking to develop new products to take their business forward, they sought funding from the University of Derby’s Invest to Grow programme.
With the £58,875 from Invest To Grow, RDS Global set about developing a cyber audit portal. This portal enables clients to self-assess compliance with the government’s Cyber Essentials Certification and also the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In order to develop the portal, RDS Global needed to recruit a series of development staff and technical experts which would not have happened without the investment provided by the European Regional Development Fund-backed project.
This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
