Cyber attacks cost organisations like yours thousands of pounds and cause lengthy periods of disruption. Do you have a plan for what you would do if your customer database was stolen, your website was forced offline, or you couldn’t access your email or business-critical data?
Cyber criminals don’t just attack banks and large companies – they target any organisation which isn’t properly protected, even small businesses.

The majority of cyber attacks exploit basic weaknesses in your IT systems and software. Cyber Essentials shows you how to address those basics and prevent the most common attacks. The scheme is designed by Government to make it easy for you to protect yourself.  Speak to us as we can provide you with  Cyber Essentials Certification.

Our aim is to make good cyber security habits second nature, not an afterthought. For individuals and small businesses, understanding and adopting simple online security is key to enabling individuals and small businesses to become more resilient against the cyber threat while also getting the most out of being online. To effectively deliver on this task, we need a collective and collaborative approach from the public and private sector embedding simple, protective cyber security advice into everyday touch points.

Businesses, public and private sector organisations and other institutions hold personal data, provide services, and operate systems in the digital domain. The connectivity of this information has revolutionised their operations. But with this technological transformation comes the responsibility to safeguard the assets which they hold, maintain the services they provide, and incorporate the appropriate level of security into the products they sell. The citizen and consumer, and society at large, look to businesses and organisations to take all reasonable steps to protect their personal data, and build resilience – the ability to withstand and recover – into the systems and structures on which they depend. Businesses and organisations must also understand that, if they are the victim of a cyber attack, they are liable for the consequences.
