Cybercrime is undiscerning when it comes to attacking victims, and it is industry agnostic. Cyber security is a complex topic, and it is difficult to stay informed. There are many different classes of threat, and many variants within each class. The sheer number of threats is overwhelming. The choice of strategies, technologies, certifications and training that you can adopt to maintain your network security and the integrity of your data can seem almost as numerous.
We help you to understand the different threats and to deploy the most appropriate technologies for your business, risks and budget. The technologies include...
The correct hardware and software will provide an excellent foundation for cyber security. Standards compliance and staff training will complete your protection.
Compliance to standards is a major contribution to achieving and maintaining a strong level to cyber security. Standards foster a culture of security and promote best working practices to reduce risk.
For policies to be embraced by staff, they require introduction in a controlled and educated fashion. We can guide you through accreditation and train your staff in the procedures.
The importance of staff training cannot be overstated. Careless or uninformed staff inadvertently facilitate nearly 60% of cyber attacks. Can your staff recognise and avoid threats?
Over one third of cyber attacks have a phishing or social engineering element. We can empower your staff with knowledge to keep your systems and data secure.
Your countermeasures must be applicable, effective and appropriate to your business, your budget and your level of risk. The continuity of your business might well depend on these countermeasures, so they must be selected in an informed and educated fashion.
We have skilled and experienced cyber security experts who will talk to you in plain English about the different active threats and what we can do for you so that you remain safe, operational and as impregnable as possible.
Anti-virus and anti-malware are vital, but they cannot provide 360° protection from all types of cyber threat. They must be viewed as one element in a robust, multi-layered approach to cyber security that encompasses technology, compliance to standards, and staff training.
We can assess your defences and advise on products, services and solutions to address any shortfalls. We can identify standards and regulations you should (or must) adopt, such as GDPR and CyberEssentials, and we will work with you to obtain accreditation to those standards. Vitally, we will train your staff on adhering to those standards, to recognise cyber threats and to work in a cyber security conscious fashion.
