We specialise in the complete IT solution from Web Design to Backend Storage and Hosting, and focussing on the audit, compliance and protection of IT and Data Security. ...
Every aspect of your infrastructure from Applications to People to Web Sites poses a risk in the current environment. We are here to work through and mitigate these threats, and make your business IT as secure as possible.
We cover many areas of compliance for data and IT security and can assess your systems for several levels depending on your requirement.
Generally, most of the factors of IT Compliance follow similar guidelines, just getting more in depth with each level.
Regardless of whether you require the certification at the early stages, or if you just want to make your network a little less open to attack, or even maybe following an attack, we will look at your system based on the requirements of Cyber Essentials.
If we then need to move further up the scale to gain Cyber Essentials Plus, ISO27001 or any other data related compliance value then we can asses your system and work out policies with your HR staff, IT staff etc with guidelines as to what to follow and implement to secure your business.
Penetration testing is when an authorised person is invited to check your system for a way to get in.
It can be done in a number of ways depending on the requirement of the recipient of the test.
We offer penetration testing of your computers network, website and associated systems, to find vulnerabilities which could be infiltrated by a 3rd party or malicious source.
We will meet up with you to discuss what you need out of the test, whether it be just to see if you are vulnerable to an outside attack, for compliance, insurance purposes or quite simply for staff training.
A web site is key to any modern business, regardless of platform or media - It acts as a shop front, store, means of contact and so much more!
Hundreds if not thousands of sites or domains are registered every day, and these sites become potential rich pickings for prospective attackers.

We specialise in the security and protection of web sites and applications and can carry out tests and suggest enhancements or implementations, which can prevent the site from future or existing security issues.
In the world we live in it is vital to be vigilant in order to protect our business and working environment. We offer training in how to spot attacks coming in from email and other Phishing attempts to try and circumvent your security.
