Why does Cyber Security matter for your Edinburgh based business?

Why every business in Edinburgh should revaluate their Cyber Security services

73% of small businesses suffered a breach in 2021

The average cost of an SME data breach is £12.000

Less than 24% of companies have a CyberSecurity plan in place

All the evidence is that small and medium-sized businesses are a key target for hackers and cyber criminals – a trend that has only increased during the pandemic as remote and hybrid working have become the norm.

And businesses based in Edinburgh are no exception to this.

These days your IT systems and infrastructure are central to the effective running of your business. And it essential to have a structured plan in place to protect it. To avoid the financial and reputational issues a breach can cause.

We provide businesses in the Edinburgh area with a rounded approach to Cyber protection that includes a government backed Cyber Security Audit, employee security awareness training, highly proactive security monitoring and complementary Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning.

How can your business benefit from our Cyber Security solutions in Edinburgh?

Ensure customer trust

By taking clear, proactive steps to keep your customers details and data secure you not only retain their trust and confidence – but also strengthen your relationship with them. By showing you are a partner who takes the health and well-being of their business seriously.

Keep your employees safe

The very nature of work your employees are now doing is across a wide range of devices from laptops to mobiles, in a range of locations from home to office and increasingly on internet-based business applications. Proactive Cyber Security keeps them and your business safe 24/7.

Maintain business continuity

If a security breach happens within your business then it is highly likely that your business will grind to a halt – as essential IT business systems and applications are affected. A good IT security plan reduces the risk of this happening and keeps your business working.

Avoid remediation costs

Leaving aside the reputational risk of a Cyber Security breach, the cost of fixing it is a real killer for small and medium-sized businesses. From lost productivity, to the cost of the ‘clean-up’. A proactive approach helps take this out of the equation.

Key steps we take to make your Edinburgh business more secure

We do an initial security assessment

Using the government backed Cyber Essentials program, we are able to assess your IT security and identify exactly where it is that you need to adopt more secure ways of working.

We implement based on findings

We then take the findings of this initial audit – which is based on the government backed Cyber Essentials approach – and work with you to reduce the security risks inside your business.

We can also remediate if it’s needed

Taking a proactive stance against the hackers is absolutely the right stance to take – and reduces your cyber risk significantly. But should you experience a breach we are also on hand to help remediate and get you back up and running.
