Why Cyber Essentials really matters for your Glasgow based SME

Protection against Cyber threats matters more than ever

73% of small businesses suffered a breach in 2021

Average cost of a data breach is £12.000

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

While Cyber Attacks continue to increase, protecting your Glasgow based business is a key priority.

We use the Government backed Cyber Essentials (and Cyber Essentials Plus) programme in our own business. And Managed IT Experts is able to walk you through the steps needed to assess Cyber Risk in your business. And put in place a plan to mitigate them that includes Cyber Essentials Certification.

How Cyber Essentials helps you manage security risks

GCHQ recently released research that showed that there is a high likelihood that at some point your business will experience an IT security incident. In fact, they suggest there is a 1 in 2 chance of this.

We can help protect against this by using the trusted Cyber Essentials framework to:

  • assess the level of Cyber threats to your business
  • reduce the risk of the most common attacks through changes to your IT infrastructure
  • provide peace of mind that your business is secure from these threats

All in one singe, cost-effective package.
