Are you Cyber Essentials Certified?

Yes, you can review our certificate here.

Can I hire you via a framework?

Yes, we are on via Sell2Wales, Dynamic Marketplace and a few others. However, bear in mind that if you are in the public sector short engagements can often be done without a framework. Call me – procurement is, after all, one of the things I do…

What’s with the name?

A very old joke. In the early part of our Director’s career a lot of people commented that he was always right about everything – yes, they were being sarcastic. Ex Cathedra is Latin for “From The Chair” and it’s the phrasing used by Catholics when the Pope is speaking for God… I adopted it as a trading name in the 1980s. No offence intended to Catholics or any other religion!
