Cybercriminals are serious about their business, numbers don't lie

A staggering 46% of UK businesses and more than a quarter of charities report having cyber security breaches within the last 12 months. Compared to previous years, the attacks are higher than ever. According to HM Government, there was an eye-watering 68% of small and medium-sized businesses and 75% of high-income charities suffering from a breach in 2020. 

There are dangers and implications of an attack

Our qualified Cyber Essentials consultants focus on current and impending cyber security risks to your business, advising and supporting you to understand the consequences associated with a successful attack. 

Cyber Essentials will protect
your company by up to 80%

We’ll focus on helping you set out the standard baseline for cyber security and protect you from up to 80% of IT security breaches. 

Staying protected, doing business with peace-of-mind
