As threats evolve, it has become clear that no one security product is a silver bullet and that the best approach to securing data and your business is to combine several complementary products that each specialise in protecting against a specific attack.

Whilst it is impossible to guard against every threat and protect every piece of data, a layered approach to network security provides peace of mind within a sensible budget. Our security suite offers proactive, behavioural and reactive solutions to securing your network and the data contained within it.

Cyber Security Awareness Training


Configuring and training the human firewall.

Most cyber-attacks exploit basic vulnerabilities. More than 90% of targeted attacks start with an infected email and these threats are always evolving.

Updating your hardware and software security can be a meaningless exercise if the end users in your organisation are not properly trained. Humans are the Achilles heel of cyber security!

This well-established cyber security training teaches you how to be more cyber security conscious through a series of entertaining and engaging videos and games. It only takes one person to cause a security breach, that’s why our modules are designed to deliver essential cyber security information concisely.

Cyber security evolves daily. Stay one step ahead or at least up to date. Do not assume that policies that were protecting you yesterday, will protect you tomorrow.

These five basic controls provide a simplified framework unlike that in ISO 27001.
