//Understanding Security

Information security is about defending and protecting the information your business holds to ensure that it is available and that its integrity is assured. Information security can often become a complex task and one that can easily be overlooked by small – medium sized companies where there is limited knowledge and experience dealing with information security or the budget for it is limited.

//What is at risk?

Your business assets can take many forms:

  • Your money
  • Your IT resources
  • Your business information
  • Your reputation
  • Your ability to do business

The information you hold can take many forms:

  • Client lists
  • Customer databases
  • Financial information
  • Contract information
  • Product designs
  • Manufacturing Processes

Loss or damage to your assets can seriously affect your business and cause:

  • Financial loss
  • Disruption in your ability to trade
  • Costs associated with fixing and repairing your systems
  • Costs from fines or potential legal action if personal data is lost or compromised
  • Loss of future business through damage to your reputation and customer base

//We can help

We will work with you to review your IT security systems as well as your business practices and procedures. We can then identify which of your assets are at risk, who poses a threat to them, how they could gain access to them and what impact any breach could have on your business. Following this we will produce a remediation plan to address any weaknesses found and can also help to formulate company policies needed to ensure your staff continue to work securely.
We can review your current IT security systems to ensure that they are configured and functioning correctly and are protecting your business assets.
Following consultancy work or a security review we can arrange to monitor and maintain your security systems on a regular basis to ensure they continue to function as expected.
We can review your current web presence to help lock down and secure your existing websites against hackers.

We can cost-effectively fill your skill and knowledge gaps, working with you to review and manage your IT security requirements and systems.
