Small and medium businesses can greatly improve their cyber-security strategy without breaking the bank. Achieving cyber security needn’t feel daunting – our expert team have put together our latest tips to help you improve your cyber-security strategy and put your mind at rest.
How to achieve cyber security success
1. Testing and Analysis
Testing is where building any sound cyber defence strategy should start. Once you’ve commissioned CyberGuard to protect your business, we’ll assess your organisation and carry out the relevant testing to ascertain your current risks and weaknesses.
Once we have the test results, our experts have a point from which to begin work. Our cyber experts will analyse all the test results and compile a comprehensive report of the findings.
2. Detect & Respond
We’ll form a set of recommendations based on our testing report which will utilise our portfolio of Detect & Respond services. The recommendations will result in a strong, resilient cyber defence and form the backbone of your new cyber security strategy.
3. Staff Education
The next step is to get your employees up to speed about cyber security in the workplace and ensure they understand the role they must play in maintaining your company’s protection. Our Security Awareness Training programme, delivered by one of our cyber experts, covers all the key points, using a range of techniques to engage and motivate your staff to work using best practise methods.
Finally, we recommend that all our customers gain Cyber Essentials accreditation. The government scheme provides a framework of the baseline protection that all businesses in the UK should have in place to keep themselves secure. It’s the best way to show your customers, suppliers, investors and stakeholders that you take cyber security seriously and you have the recommended measures in place.
Cyber Essentials Readiness Package (CERP)

So you can see that once you have experts such as CyberGuard on board you’re not far away from getting a cyber defence in place for your company.
Of course, after we’ve got you Cyber Essentials compliant (step 4), which we strongly recommend, part of our service is that we will monitor the effectiveness of your Detect & Respond services on-going and provide further recommendations to you, as and when new threats emerge, and new protection is required.
