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. If you are serious about improving your Cyber Security then I strongly recommend you speak to David.

Iain Wham Director, Innovec Ltd

Albion Environmental

“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.”

Alasdair Meldrum Director, Albion Environmental, Ayr


“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.”
