Cyber Security Review

Our Cyber Security review is an integral part of our Managed IT Support offering, where we identify open vulnerabilities and guide you through the process of rectifying them.

Our cyber security review will highlight areas that will need remediation prior to applying for the Cyber Essentials certification.

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme that helps protect your organisation against the most common cyber attacks. Following our cyber security audit, we’ll provide you with an overview of the steps required for remediation and assist you in preparing to apply for the Cyber Essentials certification.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials offers a simple and effective level of assurance for businesses of all sizes. The Cyber Essentials certification aims to reduce an organisations’ risk of attack from internet-borne threats by around 80%. A Cyber Security Review can help ensure the following:


  • Preparing for a cyber-attack before it happens
  • Ensuring your sensitive data is protected
  • Identifying weaknesses before hackers do
  • Preventing reputational damage from cyber-attacks

Effective measures for protection

5 simple ways to enhance your cyber security

Set up a firewall

A firewall is a network security device that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic and decides whether to allow or block specific traffic based on a defined set of security rules. If your firewall scans malicious code as a security risk, it will be prevented from entering the network or reaching your device.


Review your device security settings

To keep your information secure from potential security risks, it’s important to take a close look at the security and privacy settings on all of your devices, accounts and apps.


Control access to data, services and accounts

Controlling access is a way of guaranteeing that users are who they say they are and that they have the appropriate access to company data. Access control is a selective restriction of access to data, and without authentication and authorisation, there is no cyber security.


Train your staff to identify malware and viruses

You can lower your risk of cyber attacks by being vigilant of suspicious pop-ups or links that could leave your device compromised to malware and other viruses. Internal cyber security training could help with this.


Keep your devices and software up to date

Updates for devices and softwares often contain new features, fixes for bugs and performance improvements. They may also contain security patches and new security features, both of which are important to install. Patches will fix known flaws in products that would leave your devices vulnerable to attackers.
