Your business is important to you…

Your business is important to the UK…

  • What are the cyber risks that your business faces, what are real and what are media hype?
  • How can you secure your systems but still make them usable?
  • How do your secure your systems to meet the GDPR requirements?
  • How do you stop phishing emails?
  • How do you stop someone else using your email address to phish others?

These are some of the common questions we get asked, many businesses realise that they are one click away from complete disaster right now, and it keeps the owner/manager awake at night waiting for the call, email or screen prompt.

That email may come from the a criminal that has just gained access to your core systems is now wanting money, or it could be a screen prompt stating that all of your systems have been encrypted and you must pay to get your data back…

When it happens, you will typically go through the following, hard to breath, chest thumping, sweating, shaking, disbelief, anger, fear, depression, resignation. unfortunately  many unprepared businesses never recover from a major hack/ransom.

So why wouldn’t you want to plan, reduce risk and be resilient?

It will take a little time, and some effort, it doesn’t have to be expensive but consider it as an investment in business survival.

I’ve used the services of David and Cyber Aggress for a couple of years after meeting him at a networking event. I have worked with him on projects for my business and regularly recommend him to our clients, several of which have gone on to achieve the Cyber Essential Plus certification with his help and guidance. His knowledge of the cyber security industry and ability to find solutions to complex IT security issues continually impresses me and I always learn a lot when we work together at clients.

“Our company has been steadily growing over the past few years and our IT systems required various additions and have been well supported externally by Lighthouse Network & IT Systems. We found participating in the Cyber Essentials scheme useful, a methodical way of checking our IT systems to make sure they are up to a standard able to achieve certification. We could not have achieved our badge without the professional expertise of CyberAggress.”

“Working with Dave at CyberAggress was a joy. There’s nothing he doesn’t know about cyber security, and he made the whole process simple. It’s not just the form filling that helps you become more secure, it’s the fact that doing so gets you to question everything in the process. Cyber Essentials is just as much related to education and awareness, as it is about making technical changes and security improvements. It’s an eye opener, and one that every business should invest in.”
