Why?

Business risks are real.
Cyber, credit, insurance and reputation to name a few. Your integrity is on the line.

Procurement expectations are rising.
Tendering and RFP’s require visible compliance, complicating supply chains. Think cyber, GRC & ESG.

Quality assurance is complicated.
For professional associations and franchise groups. Risk ratings and diagnostics are essential.

Compliance is stifling growth.
Digital & regulatory transformation is a myth for many startups, SMEs & nonprofits.

And now we're in need of a covid recovery. 😫

That's where we come in.

Certified By is democratising risk diagnostic, audit automation, quality assurance and certification for startups, SMEs and nonprofits. To allow them to measure themselves against, improve and be certified to global best practice standards.

It significantly reduces the cost & complexity of digital & regulatory compliance, and allows businesses to easily identify & mitigate risk, to power growth & build trust in brand. It’s also a powerful tool for capital raising & procurement.

With our network of trusted partners, we work with professional associations, franchise networks, accountants and advisors to help businesses better manage privacy, cyber, data… governance, risk, compliance (GRC)… and environmental, social and governance (ESG).
