Cyber Essentials & IT Security

One in four businesses reported a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months

Cyber criminals are after your money, your data and your intellectual property. If you haven’t taken steps to protect yourself, take action now.

With help from Integrity IT, it’s easy to get good, basic protection in place with the government endorsed Cyber Essentials scheme.
Cyber Essentials 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 the Data Protection Act 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. However, Integrity IT can go one step further and help your business to apply for a 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 badge to demonstrate to customers, partners and clients that you take cyber security seriously – boosting reputations and providing a competitive selling point.

Having a Cyber Essentials certificate will:

  • Protect your organisation against common cyber threats
  • Show your customers you take internet security seriously
  • Allow you to bid for Government contracts

Network Protection

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 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.

We don’t just partner with one security company.  As Sophos Gold Partners and Eset Partners, we have a wider range of options open to us in order to provide the service which most suits your needs.
