Our Story

Siarp is the Welsh word for “sharp” and is pronounced “sharp”! 

We started Siarp the end of January 2020 which seemed like the perfect time to start a new business.  As far as new starts can go, you can’t do much better than a new year, a new decade and a new business!  What we didn’t see coming was Coronavirus.  Around a month in to the new business, the whole world changed!

What didn’t change was people.  Siarp was created to help people.  And people run businesses, people work in businesses and people are customers of businesses.  And as long as people need our help, then we will have our reason to be.

Helping small and medium sized businesses to be safer from harm caused by human error and malicious criminal activity is important to us.  We also work hard to help our clients make better decisions, understand technology and to grow their businesses by offering timely strategic guidance free of technical jargon.

Our ideal clients are companies who often don’t have the resources of larger businesses but need help to be safer online and make better use of technology in driving their businesses forwards.

We want to help people like you. 
 
After several years talking to business owners about cybersecurity in a previous business, it was clear that many don’t understand that they are at risk of cyber attack and many more believe they have adequate protection in place, usually delivered through their existing IT provider.

We’ve carried out many cybersecurity assessments for businesses, we learned  that the most IT providers provided excellent services, but were not necessarily giving sufficient attention to cybersecurity and multiple weaknesses were exposed during each review.
 
Because of this, Siarp’s will work hand-in-hand with existing IT providers or a companies internal IT support to help improve the organisations cybersecurity.  This is about making you safer, it’s not a blame game.


Think about it this way, you might go to a GP surgery and meet a doctor when you have concerns about your health.  But for specific problems, you’d go and see a specialist.   IT Support companies are a great place to go for your day to day helpdesk needs.

When you need to secure your business, come to a specialst.
