At £50 a year the service, called ChamberSign, comes at a time when security on the internet is one of the most talked about topics in the world of business and finance.
The Royal Mail’s digital security service ViaCode is to provide technical support for the service and whose own survey shows that 76% of large UK companies use the internet but only 71% use it to send confidential information.
Chris Humphries director general of BCC, speaking to the BBC, said: ‘By ending once and for all the perception that e-commerce is too difficult and risky, ChamberSign will put lower costs, faster delivery and access to new markets within reach of all businesses.’
