Protecting your business against constantly emerging cyber security threats is an on-going task, not just a one-off project.
Research shows that 43% of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses. Regardless of your size, what sector you are in or how sensitive the data is that you process, the cost and disruption from a data breach, ransomware attack or other malicious activity could be substantial to your organisation.
A well-thought-out strategy for tackling information security threats is crucial. This should include an information security policy, end user awareness training, annual IT security audits/risk register review and clearly defined accountability for information security in your organisation.
Labyrinth have been contracted to deal with cyber security incidents on an ad-hoc basis which have cost small businesses tens of thousands of pounds. In every case we have dealt with, the attacks could have easily been prevented with relatively low-cost cyber security controls – particularly when weighed up against the financial loss the businesses suffered through the attacks.
In most of our Outsourced IT Support service plans we include annual IT risk assessments, routine security audits, security incident management, disaster recovery and strategy reviews. We also provide all of these services on an ad-hoc basis and can work alongside your in-house teams.
Our cyber security expertise is backed up by our own IS0 27001 and Cyber Essentials accreditations which we have held for a number of years.
