Cyber Security

Cyber attacks on large multinational businesses and national governments typically have the most attention. The consequences can be disastrous, not to mention that recovery takes a long time, but a business of any size can be affected.

In the past year, 43% of businesses reported Cyber security breaches or attacks. The average cost of a data breach for businesses in the UK is £16.1k. Up to 88 % of companies have experienced data breaches during the last year.

We recognise that the prospect of discussing Cyber security may be intimidating, and you may be concerned about being sold a service you do not require. This is why we will help you demystify Cyber security and provide you with the service your business needs.

Types of cyber security threats

Phishing

Phishing is the sending bogus emails that appear to originate from credible sources. The objective is to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers and login credentials. It is the most prevalent form of cyber attack. However, you can protect yourself through knowledge or a technological solution that filters dangerous emails.

Ransomware

Ransomware is malicious software that is intended to extort money by preventing access to files or the computer system until a ransom is paid. However, paying the ransom does not ensure the recovery of the files or the restoration of the system.

Malware

Malware is software designed to gain unauthorised access to a computer or to cause damage to it.

Social engineering

Social engineering is a strategy employed by opponents to induce you to divulge sensitive information. For example, they may request a monetary payment or get access to your private information. Social engineering can be used with any of the above dangers to increase your likelihood of clicking on links, downloading malware, or trusting fraudulent sources.
