Ashfield Based IT Professionals Protected Against A Cyber Attack!

Cyber attacks are costing UK businesses thousands of pounds each year. The government has responded to this business issue and introduced an initiative to support and keep businesses safe with the Cyber Essentials Certification scheme that sets out a good baseline of cyber security suitable for all organisations.

It is a prevention tool that will protect and safeguard your business against common cyber threats.

Ashfield based Arcsus IT Solutions has proudly announced they have been successfully awarded Cyber Essentials Certification, demonstrating their commitment to safeguarding systems and data, and reinforcing their capabilities as a provider of managed security services and most of all delivering peace of mind to their customers.

The government’s strategy for Cyber Essentials is to make the UK of the most secure places to do business in cyberspace. It is helping proactive IT support organisation like Arcsus IT Solutions to create awareness amongst businesses to realise the risk of internet-borne threats.

The scheme addresses key controls such as secure configuration of all components of an IT infrastructure, boundary firewalls and internet gateways. Along with access controls and administrative privilege management, patch management. Malware protection and process driven IT policies.

Commenting on the certification Managing Director Brook Pitchford comments: ‘Companies with the Cyber Essentials Certificate can prevent around 80% of cyber attacks. What we are keen to raise awareness about is the other benefits surround business efficiency. It can help businesses save money and improve productivity by streamlining processes. It also enables businesses to bid for government contracts and improves performance on business tenders. Our experienced IT professionals are ready to help local businesses do the same!

Mr Pitchford continued: With one in four businesses reporting a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months this is an issue that cannot be ignored. It can have a crippling effect on bottom line through loss of money, business critical data, and loss of customer data not to mention the lengthy periods of disruption.’
