The global cyber security threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of cyber and data breaches every year.

A CyberEdge report found that in the UK, 81.4% of organisations had experienced at least one cyber attack during 2021/2022. The cyber security research company also found that over a 12-month period, ransomware attacks affected 73% of UK organisations.

Businesses frequently neglect cyber security and fail to take steps to protect all of their I.T. infrastructure.

It is critical to keep all cyber security systems up to date in order to safeguard your company from cyber threats.

Why is Cyber Security Important?


Ensuring security throughout your business helps boost confidence in the workplace, while keeping data, network systems, and other I.T. systems secure.

If business systems lacked sufficient I.T. security management, our data can be exploited and leaked, posing a risk to the business and, more importantly, the client.

We must be able to trust a business with our banking details, address, and other personal information, as well as their corporate security.

What is Cyber Security?


The primary purpose of cyber security is to secure all network-connected devices, including smartphones, laptops, and desktop computers, but it also safeguards users from clicking on phishing e-mails, and also going on harmful websites that can compromise your network/computer.

Cyber security helps protect the majority of your business I.T. infrastructure. Here are different ways that cyber security can help protect your business.

Network Security


Cyber security protects users against intruders, targeted cyber attacks, and malware by ensuring a secure connection between the network and the user. Having cyber protection for your network helps assure customers that you care about privacy, and that you can safely store and handle data.

Application Security


There are a number of anti-virus and anti-malware tools available that can help you detect and quarantine any harmful files on your computer. Some can guard against data theft as well as ransomware attacks.

Information Security


Assists in keeping data secure and protected, as well as preventing the leak or breach of confidential information.

Information Security differs to Data Security, as it prevents the authorization, access, use, disruption, modification or destruction of information.

Data Security


While cyber security protects data stored on a computer, it also protects the method by which it is shared.

Data Security is different to Information Security as data security prevents illegal access, use disruption, modification or destruction of data in storage.

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity


Cyber security ensures that if anything goes wrong, from environmental disasters to a cyber breach, the company can move forward and recover, without losing their work.
