Cyber Security Services from CyberGate

Protecting your network from the threat of cyber security threat and attack is an essential part of your continuity and disaster recovery plan. Every security threat is different and it’s impossible to know exactly when a cyber-attack may occur. Ensuring your network is protected and understanding how your business may be at risk is therefore essential to ensure the correct level of security is in place.

We help our clients to understand where they are at risk of a cyber security attack and once identified, we work with you to detect, recover from and prevent any future cyber security breaches. An initial assessment will help us to determine whether your organisation has effectively implemented the controls required by the Cyber Essentials Scheme, in order to defend against the most common and unsophisticated forms of cyber-attack.

1 Step 1

Understanding the Threat

As with any threat, its essential to understand from what and where you are at risk. Any company, regardless of location, size and turnover is at risk from cyber-attack and often these threats are as a result of staff or an outdated legacy infrastructure.

Vulnerabilities and threats often enter an organisation via the weakest link in the security chain; its employees.

The use of Social media in the workplace creates the ideal opportunity for attackers to access a network or system and the often unclear policy on use of corporate and home devices can leave an organisation open to attack.

An ageing legacy infrastructure, with a business wide internet connection leaves organisations wide open to cyber-attack via third party entry points to the network; VOIP, Video conferencing, wireless access control and CCTV are just a few examples.

Have you considered the critical and sensitive information that would be available if your network was penetrated by a cyber-attack; company data, finance information, employee or customers’ personal information. When you begin to understand the potential devastation an attack could cause to your organisation, both financially and reputably, a reliable, robust cyber security solution becomes an immediate requirement for every business.


Cyber Security & Your Business

Many organisations are under the misconception that Cyber Security isn’t relevant for their business. We’ve addressed some of the most common myths below.

We don’t take payments online

Even if you don’t take payments through your website your organisation is still at risk from cyber attack. Criminals are opportunistic and can benefit from stealing a wide range of business data.

We don’t have anything a hacker would want

Cyber criminals aren’t just looking for money when they hack into your network. Small businesses have a wealth of sensitive data that can be traded on the dark web amongst other cyber criminals. Personal information such as names, addresses, bank details, date of birth etc can all be sold and used for fraud and phishing scams.

We’re too small to be targeted

As a smaller business you’re are actually easier to target than large corporations and multinationals who have larger budgets and therefore better defences. Typically, SME’s don’t have the same defences in place making them an ideal target for hackers.

We can’t afford Cyber Security

The recently formed Cyber Essentials scheme backed by the UK government means cyber security is now accessible for all small and medium sized businesses. CyberGate provide cyber security services that are affordable and provide you with the peace of mind that your business is covered should a cyber breach occur.

Reducing your risk of Cyber Attack

Educate and reinforce.

The threat of a cyber attack can be massively reduced when staff are informed of the risks to your business and educated on the basics of cyber security. CyberGate can provide courses which will teach staff everything they need to know in order to better understand and tackle the threat of cyber criminals.

Once employees have been educated on being cyber aware, it’s a good idea to implement policy and procedure to reinforce your companies’ position and response to any breach of security made by a member of staff.

The Cyber Essentials Scheme

The government led Cyber Essentials Scheme is aimed at helping businesses to protect themselves against the most common threats. By implementing the measures outlined in the shceme, a business can greatly reduce its exposure to cyber threat and attack.

The scheme provides an education for your staff in the basics of cyber security. Once your business has completed the certification process you can include the Cyber Essentials logo on your website and other marketing material.

By promoting that your organisation is Cyber Essentials certified, you can build trust with your customers and suppliers who will gain confidence in the fact that you have protected not only your own company data, but any information held in relation to their company too.
