If you haven’t reviewed your cyber security planning within the last few months, you may find they are no longer right for the business. From the increasing adoption of cloud technologies to the rapid uptake of home working, your security requirements will have likely changed.

If you haven’t reviewed your cyber security planning within the last few months, you may find they are no longer right for the business. From the increasing adoption of cloud technologies to the rapid uptake of home working, your security requirements will have likely changed. And with the latest reports the US government has recently been targeted, it is a clear sign that anyone can be affected. As we move forward to 2021 the threats we face will only increase. What we have planned for in the past may no longer be the focus in the future.

We know it can be daunting thinking about cyber security, so we have compiled everything you need to help. From looking at how you can help secure your remote workers, benchmarking and assessing your existing MSP, or upskilling staff to identify and reduce the threats, we have a number of resources that can help achieve greater security. Our cyber security eBook helps you start the process of building a robust security strategy fit for 2021 and beyond. And you can always book in for a 15-minute consultation with one of our directors.

Do you think your staff are cyber aware?

If the answer is yes, then how do you know? Have you ever tested them? Do they have on-going training to help them identify the latest threats? We understand it is easy to make assumptions and thinking everyone can spot a phishing email, that they know the company’s password policies. But if you don’t assess them on a regular basis you could be in for a surprise and suffer a serious breach later down the line.

It is important to train your staff, they are the biggest threat to your business and knowing they are well equipped to face the challenges of cyber security will give you peace of mind. To help, we have created a blog that outlines 5 simple steps that can help you upskill staff and feel confident they don’t make costly mistake.

Watch how we became James Todd’s strategic IT partner

From the moment we initially engaged with James Todd & Co, it was apparent there were many issues with their current IT infrastructure. Security was a major concern for the management team and the systems themselves certainly didn’t work for them. Data and applications had been split due to system limitations, with the on-site servers and the internet connections weren’t fit for purpose. Please take a look at our case study video to discover how we helped James Todd & Co.

How to choose your MSP (managed service provider)

It’s easy to keep the status quo and not make a decision as change can seem risky. But what happens if your MSP isn’t focused on your business, its safety and security? It is imperative to choose your MSP based upon the quality with which they support you, but also their approach to your data and security. Cost is often a focus and that is understandable. The costs of getting it wrong can be seismic and run into thousands of pounds for a breach. Check out our blog which focuses on how your MSP should approach security.
