Cyber Security

Protect your business from cyber attacks.

Cyber crime in the UK is growing. There are hundreds of cyber attacks virtually every minute of every day, seven days a week, on businesses of all sizes.

Even a simple virus could result in a loss of data and disrupted cashflow. An attack could put off your customers, prevent you trading and damage your reputation. You could be prosecuted or fined by regulators. In the worst cases, an unprepared business might even be forced to close.

How we can help you

Our specialist cyber security team works with clients across the UK, identifying vulnerabilities, minimising risks, strengthening security and training staff. We tailor our approach to match your specific requirements, to help you make better, more informed decisions across every aspect of your digital and IT systems.

Four in ten businesses and a quarter of charities reported a cyber security attack in the previous 12 months. Among medium and large businesses, the figures are even higher.

Penetration testing

Simulated attacks which evaluate the cyber security of your business. These can be conducted remotely, to simulate an attack over the internet, or internally, to simulate an internal threat. Designed to provide maximum assurance while ensuring testing is safe and non-disruptive.

Vulnerability assessment

A technical assessment of your current vulnerabilities, which can highlight issues such as insecure configurations and outdated software. This can be internal or external to your network, and external scans can be automated monthly for continual assurance.


Designed to educate your employees about cyber security and how they can keep your organisation safe. We can help to ensure staff contracts include security obligations and send regular reminders to keep your teams up to date on the latest threats.

Information assurance

A review which identifies current cyber risks across your technology, data, delivery channels and the external environment.

Cyber Certification

Government-backed cyber certification schemes are an excellent way to reassure your customers, regulators and other stakeholders that your organisation follows best practice. We can assist with preparing for and completing the certification process.

Incident response management

We can ensure your organisation responds robustly to a cyber security incident, both by guiding you through a response framework or developing a pre-emptive management plan.

It may be that you:

  • have suffered a cyber-attack – and want to avoid another
  • don’t have the internal expertise or time to manage your cyber security adequately 
  • require an independent, expert review of your cyber security position
  • want to improve compliance and strengthen governance through better cyber security management 
  • assess cyber security risks as part of the due diligence in a transaction
  • need a recognised cyber security certification for tenders, pitches, or insurance purposes

Whether you’ve already suffered a cyber-attack, are looking for recognised third-party certification, or want to validate and strengthen your existing systems, we can help. So, if a cyber attack does occur, your business has the systems, tools and processes in place to deal with it effectively, with minimal disruption.
