Please, don’t let a lack of resource affect your Cyber Security

Cybersecurity is an ever-growing concern for UK small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). In an increasingly digital world, businesses need to prioritise the protection of their sensitive data and customer information. However, many SMEs struggle to keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape due to a lack of resources and expertise.

That’s where a cybersecurity provider comes in. By subscribing to BIT Security’s Essentials products, from as little as £10 per user per month, SMEs can integrate and protect their business from potential cyber threats. This article will explore the benefits of using our team and how we help SMEs easily obtain cybersecurity certifications like Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus, and ISO27001.

First and foremost, we provide the necessary expertise and resources to help businesses identify potential vulnerabilities and mitigate them. This includes conducting regular security assessments and audits to identify any weak points in a company’s infrastructure, network, or applications. By identifying these vulnerabilities, we help the business implement the necessary security measures to address them and prevent potential breaches.

At BIT Security, we can also provide ongoing monitoring and management of a business’s security systems. This includes 24/7 monitoring of the network and systems to detect and respond to potential threats in real time. We can also manage security patches and updates to ensure that your business’s systems are up-to-date and protected against the latest threats.

One of the key benefits of using us as a cybersecurity provider is that we can help you obtain cybersecurity certifications. These certifications are becoming increasingly important for businesses, as they provide a way to demonstrate to customers and partners that they take cybersecurity seriously and have implemented the necessary security measures.

The Cyber Essentials certification is a government-backed scheme that helps businesses protect against the most common cyber threats. The certification covers five key areas: firewalls, secure configuration, user access control, malware protection, and patch management. By obtaining the Cyber Essentials certification, you can demonstrate to customers and partners that your business has taken the necessary steps to protect against cyber threats.

The Cyber Essentials Plus certification goes a step further, by requiring an independent assessment of a business’s security systems. This assessment involves penetration testing, which simulates a cyber-attack to identify any vulnerabilities that may have been missed during the initial assessment.

Finally, the ISO27001 certification is an internationally recognised standard for information security management. This certification requires businesses to implement a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS), which covers all aspects of information security, including people, processes, and technology. By obtaining the ISO27001 certification, your business can demonstrate a high level of commitment to information security and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

We help our clients obtain these certifications by conducting the necessary assessments, implementing the required security measures, and guiding the business through the certification process. This can be a complex and time-consuming process, but with the help of our knowledgeable team, we ensure that you meet the necessary requirements and obtain the certification.

In addition to the above benefits, we also provide education and training to help businesses understand the evolving threat landscape and how to protect against potential threats. This includes training employees on how to identify and respond to potential threats, as well as providing regular updates on the latest threats and how to prevent them.

Overall, we are here to provide SMEs with the necessary expertise and resources to protect against potential cyber threats. With subscriptions starting from as little as £10 per user per month, you can access a range of cybersecurity tools, implemented and monitored by our team that will help you identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities, obtain cybersecurity certifications, and provide ongoing monitoring and management of your security systems.

By prioritising cybersecurity, businesses can protect their sensitive data and customer information, and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. Start your journey to cyber security with our team today.
