Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, also known as a pen test, is a way of testing your cyber defenses. A simulated cyber attack is targeted against your computer system in a secure and safe manner to check for exploitable vulnerabilities. Penetration tests are often requested, either as part of a tender or part of ongoing supply chain security auditing.

What our clients say about our data backup

Data backup and disaster recovery are included in our security packages.

Why is Cyber Security important?

SMEs are most vulnerable

Cyber-criminals target the path of least resistance. Small businesses typically have fewer cyber defenses and are therefore frequently targeted.

Ransomware is the biggest threat

Ransomware is the most common cyber threat to organisations. It is important to:

  • Prevent a ransomware incident through basic cyber security controls
  • Have measures in place to recover quickly from an attack, such as data backup.
  • Have cyber insurance to pick up the costs of an attack.

Prevention is key

The high number of cyber incidents means the Police can't arrest their way out of cyber threats. In addition to this, cybercriminals are difficult to stop as they are often based in countries that are not friendly with the UK. It means the best way to protect your business is to stop becoming a victim in the first place, with sufficient cyber security.

Our dependence on digital assets

Today, our society is almost entirely dependent on the continued availability, accuracy, and confidentiality of digital data.

Despite the technology’s obvious benefits, including the capability to work remotely, the information generated and reliance on connected technology also makes businesses a target to criminals and hackers.

The introduction of GDPR has gone some way to improve general cyber security, however, we can expect to see more regulation and legislation as our businesses and society becomes more connected and reliant upon digitalisation and IoT.

West Midlands Cyber Crime Statistics

Businesses, big and small in Birmingham and the West Midlands fall victim to cybercrime. UK Government stats suggest that 40% of businesses had cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months, yet only 35% of businesses are deploying security monitoring tools. This means many businesses are simply unaware that they've been breached4. It takes on average 56 days to detect a cyber breach5, enabling cybercriminals to steal substantial amounts of information.

*Reported cost of cybercrime to the West Midlands Police, covers computer virus/malware/spyware, denial of service attack and extortion, hacking on servers, social media, email and telecoms.

Cyber security Packages for small businesses

Practical. Feasible. Affordable.


Cyber security for small businesses.

We have created two security packages to keep cyber security simple. The core and enhanced packages bring together the essential and proportionate defences a small or medium sized business needs.

There is no single defence for cyber security - having anti-virus or a firewall is not sufficient today. Cybercriminals can target your business in multiple ways. Because of this, a multi-layered approach is needed. A different tool tacklles each threat. This means you need a variety of defences all working at the same time in order to be secure.

This is why we have crafted two security packages. Both packages contain multiple defences that are practical, affordable, feasible and essential for a small business. We understand that cyber security may be new to your business. We will take the time to explain cyber security and ensure you have enough data as a business leader. Take a look at our cyber glossary.

The core package is included in our IT support, with the option to upgrade to enhanced package for further protection. Both packages are:

Designed for SMEs

Practical. Feasible.
Security proportionate for a small or medium sized business. 

Affordable & flexible

Monthly subscription, priced per person with flexility to easily scale up or down as your team size changes.

Your data is safe. Measures are in place to protect, respond and recover from a cyber incident.
