The availability, integrity and confidentiality of data are paramount to survival in today’s interconnected business world. It doesn’t matter if your company is large or small – your share price or companies reputation is linked directly to your ability to protect your business’ data.
There are numerous threats and vulnerabilities posed by our use of technology. These threats and vulnerabilities grow and change every day and sometimes it can seem like keeping up is impossible. Keeping up may be difficult, but as a business’ or individual we can become more aware of these risks, allowing us to manage them more proactively and start the never-ending journey to better information and cyber-security risk management.
Our Cyber Essentials Suite of security assessments take a holistic approach to Information & Cyber Security. More information can be found in the section below.
Cyber Essentials Baseline – A basic baseline assessment of cyber security. An assessment against the five essential security controls that can “prevent around 80% of cyber attacks”.

Cyber Essentials Advanced – A high impact program designed to help IT Security Leaders assess and improve their security practices.

Understand where and how to improve security practices. Measure success in terms of meeting industry best practices. Includes internal and external network security scan and internal vulnerability scan.
Effective cyber risk management is not just about protecting against and responding to the threat of attack. Cybercrime today is targeted, hits deeply and tries to be stealthy, rarely making the news except when a high profile target is exposed or admits it has been penetrated at which point media coverage is all-encompassing, less than flattering, damaging to the brand and sometimes resulting in senior level resignations.
Information and cyber risk is better understood as an enterprise wide issue, rather than a technology risk, and boards need to take responsibility for cyber-security to be able to lead in a digital age.
