The interconnected world we live in means that we are under potential cyber attack constantly.

It’s vitally important that this issue is put to the top of your security agenda and there are simple and effective things that can be done. The first step should be a vulnerability check of the network with specialist software that scans to detect the possible weak areas that need addressing.

Once you have a report you are then able to deal with the issues that have arisen, these could be as simple as software that is outdated.

Once the rectification work has taken place , a new scan will confirm that your network is secure and you are then able to apply for the government backed Cyber Essentials accreditation that will confirm to your clients and suppliers that you take cyber security seriously.

Government organisations are being encouraged to only deal with businesses who can demonstrate that they operate securely.

This accreditation, once achieved, comes with £20,000 of insurance against a future possible cyber attack issue. You’ll be surprised as to how little securing your network might cost.
