Cyber security Assessments

Finding your weaknesses

Is your business secure?

If you love something, you have to protect it! 

What do you love?  Your family?  Your business?  Your customers?

To protect your business from unknown threats, first you need to understand what it is that needs protecting.  What you don’t know will hurt you!

Why would you want a cyber security assessment?  For many organisations, cyber security is an invisible or unknown threat which is why it is vital that the issues are exposed and steps taken in response.

Some believe that they already have adequate protection in place, some simply don’t believe they are at risk.  Both often turn out to be incorrect.

A Cyber security Assessment or review will help you understand what risks your business is exposed to and what steps to take to reduce your exposure to threats before it’s too late.

Many of our clients already have a strong relationship with an IT provider, in these cases we can work with the business and the current provider to make sure that gaps are closed and changes are made to existing processes and procedures.

Going beyond the technical measures, we also analyse the people and workflows within your business to identify areas of risk and potential improvements to limit the possibilities of technical systems becoming compromised or circumvented.

Find your weaknesses with a Cyber security Assessment

Cybersecurity human factor, social engineeringOur cyber security assessments are designed to help you identify gaps in your defences. From basic controls and protective measures you can put in place, to making sure your team can spot a scam and know not to leave “backdoors” open for the bad guys!

We work alongside your business and your existing IT team to identify what you’ve got and help you work out how to keep it safe.

The first step is a brief two-hour assessment which can be carried out face-to-face at your offices or over video call. 

We take a high-level view of your business to learn more about how you operate and what the level of risk appears to be. 

Don’t worry if you’re not technical, we keep it simple and explain in plain-English along the way, so that you have a greater understanding of the various risk areas.  We aim to consider and discuss:

  • Network Security
  • The Human Factor (Social Engineering and User Awareness)
  • Secure Configuration (Your hardware and software)
  • Policies and Procedures

What about GDPR?

Cybersecurity measures and GDPR By now, you’re sure to have heard all about GDPR, but many businesses are still not doing enough to make sure they don’t get caught
Almost any business will have some data which needs to be protected, we can help you identify your data sets and put appropriate
controls around them to reduce the risk of a data breach in your business. 
After all, your customers and employees trust you with their personal information, the cost of losing that trust could severely harm
your business and reputation.
Did you know that many businesses need to register with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)?  If they don’t register they can be fined, luckily the ICO has a handy self-assessment tool to help you find out whether or not you need to register!
