As specialists in cyber security consultancy, with advanced capabilities that range from disaster recovery, data protection, back-up and compliance, we can work with your technologies, people and processes to prevent your IT, business and data becoming compromised.
Every business, in every sector, is vulnerable
Many small and medium-sized businesses believe that they simply don’t have systems or data worth hacking.
But, according to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) here in the UK, those very businesses were subject to almost 10,000 cyberattacks a day in 2019 – that’s one in five small firms, many London-based businesses amongst them – with the annual cost of such attacks totaling around £4.5 billion.
Using various methodologies, our aim is to make security second nature to your people, a key part of your business process and fundamental to your IT infrastructure.
That way, we don’t just protect your technology, network and data but pay particular attention to defending your intellectual property (IP) and client/employee personally identifiable information (PII). The latter is crucially important as it’s a requirement of the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), breaches of which can result in fines of up to €20 million, or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater.
The threats evolve, so must your defences
In an ever-shifting cyber security landscape, attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Whether that’s from data breaches and losses or ransom and malware to the human errors of your staff and damaging leaks from disgruntled former employees.
The problem for most small and medium-sized business in London, is that they simply don’t have the financial resources to employee an in-house IT team or set aside a secure space for their key IT infrastructure components, such as servers.
But with our cyber security consultancy we can make the right advice and state-of-the-art technical solutions achievable AND affordable. Independent, impartial and objective our expert and experienced services are carefully tailored to your budget, your business and compliance objectives, as well as your plans for your operations today and tomorrow’s.
Our five-stage cyber security process
1. Initial risk assessment
Our expert cyber security consultants take a detailed overview of your business: it’s objectives, operations, current technologies, future plans and, of course, vulnerabilities.
We’ll provide you with a practical understanding of the cyber security risks that you face and how to mitigate them, in the fastest, simplest and most cost effective ways.
The results of your risk assessment will provide you with an effective security and risk management roadmap to go forward with.
2. Security technology advice, procurement and implementation
Our highly experienced cyber security consultants will help you to select the right technologies to protect your business, IT infrastructure, network, people and confidential data, IP and customer information from attack.
We can design, develop, build and deploy the chosen IT security technologies and architecture to maximise your defences and minimise the possibility of compromise.
3. Risk management services
Using proven risk management frameworks, our cyber security consultants will provide guidance and recommendations on managing your cyber security and developing strategies for minimising potential threats in the future.
We’ll work closely with you to ensure our recommendations match your business needs, budgets, operations and aspirations, today and tomorrow.
4. Strategic cyber security – input and support
As we said above, successful cyber security solutions that protect your infrastructure, networks and data rely on the complete alignment of your IT, people and processes.
An effective cyber security strategy that maximizes defence and minimises the potential risks and compromises is pivotal and can impact on every aspect of your operation.
It needs to be a cornerstone of your overall business strategy, be driven by a senior ‘cyber security champion’ in your organisation and be inherent in the ongoing training of new and current staff. The latter is particularly important because your security is only ever as strong as your weakest link and that’s usually your people, and usually by accident.
Our highly experienced and expert cyber security consultants can work with you to design and implement a cyber security strategy, all aligned with your business objectives, operations and aspirations now and in the future.
5. A fully managed and supported service
We can also provide the ongoing management of your cyber security systems and services. This enables you and your team to focus on core business activities with complete peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that you have robust defence measures in place.
This includes continuous guidance to help you to successfully negotiate the ever-evolving cyber security threats and constantly shifting technology landscape.
Disaster recovery and data back-up solutions for your peace of mind
Disaster recovery and data back-up solutions are much like insurance – you’re covering your business for something you hope is never going to happen. Unfortunately, in the real world it sometimes does.
So our disaster recovery and data back-up solutions are put in place to keep your business running, while minimising operational downtime and data loss. Remember, such problems aren’t only caused by cyber security breaches but also by other unforeseen events such as theft, fire and flooding. Whatever the cause, our aim is always to get your IT system, and the business that relies upon it, up and running again as quickly and effectively as possible.
The cost of such solutions is often far less than dealing with the financial and operational fallout from an IT or data disaster.
Crucially, like an effective cyber security strategy, disaster recovery and data back-up solutions enable you to go about your business with complete confidence and peace of mind, knowing that your valuable business assets are fully defended and can be quickly and easily restored.
Let our team of experienced cyber security consultants, who are widely experienced in a range of onsite, cloud and hybrid cloud back-up solutions, assess your needs and design and implement the most applicable and affordable services for you from the latest and proven cloud technologies, such as Microsoft Azure, Altaro and Datto.
In fact, as a fully accredited Microsoft partner we’re Microsoft Cloud specialists, often utilising the company’s private and hybrid cloud, SaaS, disaster recovery, business continuity and virtualised solutions to safely and securely host our customers’ vital data assets.
You cannot help but have noticed that the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on the 25th May 2018.
As we mentioned above, it’s now critical that you keep your data – particularly your customers’ personally identifiable information (PII) – safe and secure or run the risk of a significant fine.
Our certified GDPR consultants are London-based and can help you to understand the real and potential risks your business faces – via a GDPR audit – and then help you to implement robust solutions to mitigate them.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme
Our industry certifications include the Government-backed Cyber Essentials Scheme. This was created in partnership with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises consortium (IASME) and the Information Security Forum (ISF) to develop Essentials, a set of basic technical controls to help organisations protect themselves against common online security threats.
Launched in June 2014, the scheme enables organisations to gain one of two Cyber Essentials badges and is backed by industry bodies such as the Federation of Small Businesses, the CBI and a number of insurance organisations who are offering incentives for businesses.
Cyber Essentials is suitable for all organisations, of any size, in any sector and – as we are Cyber Essentials certified – we can help you gain certification to help you safeguard your business data and, more importantly, your customers’ information.
We’re living proof that Cyber Essentials certification clearly demonstrates that your business is serious about cyber security and has taken essential precautions to minimise breaches and loss. We’re sure your customers, partners, suppliers, insurers and industry regulators will glean additional peace of mind from your certification.
