Cyber criminals are after your money, your data and your intellectual property. If you haven’t taken steps to protect yourself, take action now.
It is important to understand what you can do to prevent a cyber attack. With help from Integrity IT Solutions, it’s easy to get good, basic protection in place with the NCSC endorsed Cyber Essentials scheme.
Cyber Essentials is backed by the National Cyber Security Centre and helps prevent the vast majority of cyber attacks. Even a simple virus or piece of malware could result in loss of data or disrupt your cash flow and productivity. An attack could also stop you trading and damage your hard-earned reputation. It may also be reported in the local media. Loss of data could breach GDPR and lead to fines or prosecution from the Information Commissioners Office.
The Cyber Essentials documents are free to download and any organisation can use them to put essential security controls in place.
As Cyber Essentials practitioners, Integrity IT can go one step further and put the procedures in place for you, as well as applying for your Cyber Essentials certificate which provides independent assurance that you have the protections correctly in place.
You will also be able to display the Cyber Essentials logo to demonstrate to customers, partners and clients that you take cyber security seriously – boosting your reputation and providing a competitive selling point.
Having a Cyber Essentials certificate will:
- Protect your organisation against common cyber threats
- Show your customers that you take steps to protect their data
- Allow you to bid for Government contracts
- Help you win new business by showing potential customers you have protection in place
For your security, Integrity IT supply and install next-generation firewalls from Sophos. These UTM (Unified Threat Management) devices protect your network and end users by providing intrusion detection, web protection, email protection and much more.
The weakest point of most networks these days can be the end users. Cyber criminals design fake websites and emails designed to dupe end users into giving out information. A UTM firewall monitors information leaving your network as well as what is coming in. Passwords, bank details and credit card information can all be prevented from being sent out to untrusted destinations on the internet.
