IT Security Essentials for your Business
Keeping software up to date
Keeping software up to date is critical. Whatever software you are using hackers will find it easier to get into old versions.
Keeping on top of patches and fixes is a great way to help keep you protected. Ensuring you are on the latest version of your software is also critical for your security plan.
For the modern world, virus protection is no longer enough, you need to protect your company from the criminals who are after your data.
This is achieved via a combination of data encryption, end point protection, anti ransomware and more. The more you can protect, the safer you are.
Backups and backup testing
The number one defence against cyber attacks. Offsite and local backups are essential, so are the testing of those backups. If your backup does not restore as expected it’s a failure.
When did you last test the backups in your business?
You can have all the firewalls, Anti Virus, Anti Malware but leave the front door unlocked and that’s it!
Keeping servers locked away and limiting access to key staff is again very simple but it can really save you from disaster.
What is Cyber Essentials?
Government backed scheme
Cyber essentials is a government backed scheme that shows you’re doing everything you can to protect yourselves from cyber attacks and to protect your client’s data.
This is a fundamental requirement of the new EU GDPR Regulations.
Requirement for public sector businesses
Cyber Essentials is now a requirement for businesses within the public sector.
Other organisations are expected to follow suit.
Peace of mind
Cyber Essentials helps to protect your organisation from the most common cyber threats, which are predominantly carried out by relatively unskilled criminals.
Cyber essentials is designed to prevent these attacks.
Certified Cyber Security
Cyber essentials reassures customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attack and attract new customers by letting them know you have security measures in place.
Gain a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level
Cyber Essentials Certification
What we offer
Cyber Essentials Certificate (Unassisted)
We understand that some businesses already have the necessary IT knowledge to be able to carry out all of the necessary preparation for this certification.
In this instance, you will complete the self-assessment questionnaire yourself and we will perform the external scan. We will then review the results of both and a certificate will be issued if passed.
Cyber Essentials Certificate (on site assistance)
We offer a fixed cost on site consultation to work with you to complete the self-assessment questionnaire.
Whilst helping you to understand and identify any weaknesses in your security and provide assistance and recommendations to help secure your business against any risks to achieve a pass.

Webroot DNS Protection
What is DNS Protection?
Domain Name System
The domain name system (DNS) works like a phone book for the internet.
When a user enters text into a browser, DNS servers take that input and translate it into the unique internet protocol (IP) addresses that let the browser open the desired site.
Why is it needed?
DNS protocols were never designed with security in mind, and are highly vulnerable to cyberattacks, such as cache poisoning, DDoS, DNS hijacking, botnets, C&C, man-in-the-middle, and more.
Webroot SecureAnywhere DNS protection is a cloud-based web security which helps to protect employees and data from malicious content online and is designed to combat this.
It offers threat protection with the integration of Webroot’s BrightCloud Threat Intelligence.
It also provides superb web filtering over the websites employees can access. There is no hardware or software to install meaning installation is fast, and easy. The service also offers reporting and monitoring of employee behaviour.
