Are your defences strong enough to resist today’s cyber threats?
Take your first step to becoming cyber secure with the Government-backed Cyber Essentials certification. This Scheme sets out a good baseline of cybersecurity suitable for all organisations in all sectors with five key controls that, when implemented correctly, can prevent around 80% of cyber attacks.
Achieving certification will also help you to address other compliance requirements such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Urban Network are Cyber Essentials PLUS accredited and are a GOLD certified IASME assessor and are well placed to guide you through the process.
Are You Ready for GDPR?
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Act is coming into force. with fines up to 4% of global turnover or €20M, it is in your interest to ensure your business has the correct processes in place. The journey to compliancy is not a quick one – shortcuts don’t exist.
A great place to begin your journey would be to gain Cyber Essentials accreditation for your business. This process will give you complete visibility to any siloed data that is accessed by your staff but may not reside within the perimeter. Urban Network can provide the services you need to support your compliancy and regulatory requirements, including IT auditing for GDPR. Our consultants will assess your business’ current data protection and privacy management by conducting an on-site review, allowing us to find where there are areas for improvement. From this, we will provide a detailed compliance report, from which you can identify the key barriers in your systems preventing your business from becoming GDPR compliant.
IT Provider not performing?
Is your current provider doing a good job?
Are they putting your business at risk?
Are you aligning the technology you use to support your business goals?
One of the hardest decisions any business needs to make is who their partners will be. This is especially true when it comes to technology partnerships, as they can become integral to everything you do as a company.
However, one of the problems a lot of small and mid-sized businesses face when asking these questions is they don’t have IT professionals on staff, so may not be able to fully parse or evaluate the answers they are given.
When technology can directly influence your reputation and turnover, it’s essential that all systems are streamlined and operating at 100% to support your business goals.
