Safeguard your brand, your customers and your revenue

Cyber security is no longer just for big brands or global conglomerates. The cyber threat landscape has evolved and criminals and their methods are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The result? No business can afford to be without a cyber security strategy to help mitigate the impact of a cyber attack.

But with so many options on the market, where do you begin?

Start with a risk management framework, like Cyber Essentials or the IASME Standard. It’s here we can help you with a host of assessment services designed around the adoption of information risk management frameworks and achieving Cyber Essentials certification.

Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed framework that addresses 80% of the most common cyber threats, while providing the foundation to tackle the remaining 20% that are specific to your business. This framework is required for most government tenders and is becoming one of the more popular starting points for your cyber security journey.

Cyber Essentials Plus

This is an extension of the Cyber Essentials scheme, and can only be completed once Cyber Essentials has been successfully achieved. Cyber Essentials Plus includes internal and external vulnerability scanning to physically test the Cyber Essential controls that you have in place.

IASME Standard

This is an effective and affordable alternative of the international ISO27001 best-practice accreditation. This has been designed specifically for smaller businesses looking to reap the benefits of having a cyber security accreditation to their name. It also includes readiness assessments for Cyber Security Essentials and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), due to be introduced in 2018.

IASME Gold Standard

This is an extension of the IASME Standard accreditation, which includes an on-site review of operational controls as well as a more in-depth documentation review.
