Security proportionate for a small or medium sized business.
If cyber security is new to your business, it can be difficult to know where to start. This is where we can help. With over 20 years of experience in security, we can provide practical, feasible and affordable, long-term solutions:
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.

Completing a cyber security self-assessment questionnaire can be difficult if you are not a cyber security expert, however, help is available.

Cyber-criminals target the path of least resistance. Small businesses typically have fewer cyber defenses and are therefore frequently targeted.
Ransomware is the most common cyber threat to organisations. It is important to:
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.
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.

Our partnership ensures that we keep up-to-date with security advancements and pass on helpful information about Government funded cyber security services and initiatives.
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.

Adopting a managed security package and gaining Cyber Essentials accreditation offers many advantages. You will have assurance that your data is backed-up. We are frequently asked: how do we backup data, which James explains in the video.
The advantages extend much further, providing peace of mind that you are prepared for future threats. It can also offer a competitive advantage, demonstrating to your prospects that you keep their data secure:
Four copies of your data is saved in three locations, alongside backup copies of data stored on Microsoft Teams, Outlook 365 and OneDrive.
Protect your ideas, designs, product specifications, trade secrets, process information and methodologies from being stolen or taken for ransom. Maintain your competitive, operational and technological advantage.
Protect against the worst-case scenario and mitigate future threats. Have the mechanisms in place to effectively respond and recover from an attack.
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:
Essential security controls. This is the minimal protection we recommend. Core package is automatically implemented to all Superfast IT clients.
Choose to add further protection and completed peace of mind with the Enhanced Security Package. This package is ecommended for businesses working in high-risk industries, including: those industries experiencing frequent cyber-attacks, as well as businesses that hold large amounts of sensitive or personal data or are part of OEM/defence or public sector supply chains.
While technology differs from industry to industry and from company to company, our security packages can be applied to organisations across any industry. We will map out your IT and conduct a risk assessment to ensure that any unique business requirements are met.
