Minimise the risk of a cyber attack with our managed security packages.

Digital revolution = increased cyber risk

Today, few areas of our business and personal lives remain untouched by the digital revolution. Over 92% of adults in the West Midlands use the internet1, while only 1.9% of small businesses in the West Midlands have no internet access 2. And with over 65% of small businesses using some form of cloud computing3, our society is now 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 cybersecurity, however, we can expect to see more regulation and legislation as our businesses and society becomes more connected and reliant upon digitalisation and IOT.

Cybersecurity made simple

Investing in cybersecurity will considerably reduce the impact of cyber crime to your business. However, cybersecurity can be complex. It is one of the less understood areas of business, typically shrouded in mystery. This is where we step in.

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

There is no single defence for cybersecurity - having anti-virus or a Firewall is not sufficient today. Cyber criminals can target your business in multiple ways. Because of this, a multi-layered approach is needed. There is essentially a different tool for tackling 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 packaged our managed cybersecurity service into the 'core' and 'enhanced' security packs. Both packs contain multiple defences that are practical, affordable, feasible and essential for a small business.

Q's role in Hollywood blockbuster James Bond is not a far fetched plot. It's closer to reality than what you might think. As James Bond has had to adapt to rapid technological shifts, so too must small businesses.

West Midlands Cyber Crime Stats

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

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