Cybersecurity is much more than IT. Your staff are an essential ingredient in the ongoing effort to reduce security risks.
We believe that cybersecurity goes beyond the realm of IT. It’s an integral part of your business landscape, with every team member playing a crucial role. Your staff are the first line of defense, and their awareness, understanding, and response to potential threats are key to reducing security risks.
The five most efficient cyber defenders are: Anticipation, Education, Detection, Reaction and Resilience.
Security threats affect every business and every individual, these threats evolve continuously and can cause catastrophic harm to your critical systems, reputation, information privacy and security.
A huge proportion of cyber attacks are aimed at small to medium businesses and the risk is only increasing. Make sure your business is better prepared and protected.
It takes years to build your business and reputation but only minutes to damage it.
Education is our passport to the future
The first and best security device any organisation can deploy to protect their business is well trained and security aware staff. Your people can be your weakest link or your best defence against cyber attackers.
Through good cybersecurity training and processes, your staff should become an integral part of your cyber defence plan.
- In person and tailored staff training
- Increase knowledge within your business to reduce risks
- Incident response training
Ready, set, defend
A penetration test is essentially an audit of the possible weak points in the perimeter of your network, this includes a non-destructive technical attack on your network to test for weaknesses that criminals could exploit to gain entry.
Once any weak points have been identified they can be strengthened and better protected. We recommend carrying out this kind of assessment at least annually.
- Regular penetration testing of your environment
- Include websites and services
- Full and detailed reporting of all vulnerabilities
- Mitigation plan for security improvements
Detect before you get hacked
Like the penetration test this kind of audit looks across your internal network for vulnerabilities and any weak points which could be exploited by attackers who are already inside the network.
- Regular internal vulnerability scanning
- Network monitoring to spot anomalous behaviour
- Spot vulnerabilities before they are exploited
