Information Security

Even if you’re not an IT expert, you know how important security is. Our experts have the skill required to help you prevent attacks, overcome user error and improve your resilience.

Information security is not one single solution. The level and scope of protection you implement will depend on the specific dynamics of your organisation. Your overall information security strategy is likely to consist of multiple levels of protection made up of hardware, software and policy. Your approach to managing these components on daily basis is equally as important as their initial implementation.

We offer a range of information security services for organisations of all sizes. Whether you place an emphasis on information security already, or you’re looking to improve your level of protection, we can help you.

Experienced Experts

We help businesses around the UK make informed decisions about their information security practices. Our team use their combined experience to consult on all security related concerns – from analysing potential threats to education users around information security.

We can help you develop your information security infrastructure, implement secure policies and secure your organisation against cyber security threats. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.

What Can We Do For You?

We offer a range of information security services that offer expert protection against cyber security threats:


Security Assessments

High-level IT security assessments highlight all information security issues and risks across your network. An IT security assessment allows you to find and eliminate gaps in your network, leaving you with less exposure to cyber security risks. We offer a range of assessments individually or as part of a complete security review.

Available Assessments:

  • Security risk assessment
  • Security policy assessment
  • Computer share permission assessment
  • User share permission assessment
  • Outbound security assessment
  • External vulnerabilities & threat exposure assessment

Business Continuity

Businesses are powered by information. Organisations that suffer substantial data loss can face severe interruptions, costs, and financial implications.

A solid information security strategy incorporates elements of data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity. This ensures that your information is restored rapidly in the event of an incident. By planning for disaster, your organization is far more able to cope with any eventuality.

Our approach places an emphasis on the integrity and availability of your business crtitical systems. We focus on your infrastructure as a whole and seek to close every gap that could lead to a possible information security incident.

The Importance of Information Security

The digital security landscape has changed and organisations now face a growing number of threats. Robust security is not only best practice but also a legal requirement:

Data Protection Act 1998

The Data Protection Act regulates the use of personal data by organisations. Personal data is defined as information relating to a living, identifiable individual.

One of the core guiding principles underlying the Act:

“Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.”

The Data Protection Act 1998 requires that personal data used by organisations is protected and processed securely. Your information security practices are a vital component in protecting the information your organisation uses.

NHS Information Governance

The NHS provides guidance for the secure storage, use and distribution of patient identifiable information. Organisations with access to patients files are required to comply with this guidance in order to protect sensitive, confidential and potentially damaging information from misuse or unauthorised distribution. Doctors, dentists, hospices and any other healthcare providers are all required to comply. Commercial third parties working with such organisations are also expected to comply with the same standards if they have potential access to this data. The NHS manages compliance through The Information Governance Statement of Compliance, with healthcare providers and third parties required to complete accreditation through the IG Toolkit.

Information security is a vital component of NHS Information Governance and a key consideration for all healthcare trusts.

Customer/Stakeholder Perception

What would your clients or stakeholders think if you fell victim to a cyber attack that leads to your involvement in a cyber- security incident? Secure information security practices will help put measures in place to protect your reputation by preventing incidents from first occurring.
