No Business is Too Small

Small businesses are often targeted in cyber attacks as they have limited resources to protect themselves against cyber threats. Our cyber security services are designed to equip your business with protection you need to safeguard your organisation from harmful breaches and cyber-attacks, without the need to invest in large capital.  

Our cyber security services have been tailored to small and medium-sized businesses to ensure that you are equipped to prevent and manage cyber-attacks.

Incident Response

We will get your business back up and running as soon as possible should you suffer from a cyber-attack to minimise downtime, recover your data, and prevent further cybersecurity breaches.


Whilst it is not possible to eliminate the risk of cyber-attacks completely, you can reduce the risk significantly by taking basic steps. These include training your staff to identify phishing attacks, using unique and secure passwords, using up-to-date software and hardware, utilising an intelligent antispam solution, and running regular antivirus scans.  

The biggest cause of cybersecurity breaches is human error, such as employees clicking on phishing emails, using weak passwords, or not following security protocols. It is important that your staff are trained to recognise these threats and the importance on following your business’s cybersecurity plan.

Your employees should be aware of several cybersecurity dangers, including:

  • Phishing: Employees should be trained to recognise and avoid phishing emails, which are designed to trick them into providing sensitive information or clicking on a malicious link.
  • Malware: Employees should be aware of the dangers of malware, which can be spread through infected emails, websites, and USB drives.
  • Weak passwords: Employees should be trained on the importance of using strong, unique passwords and how to create them. They should also be reminded not to reuse passwords or share them with others.
  • Unsecured networks: Employees should be aware of the dangers of connecting to unsecured networks, such as public Wi-Fi hotspots, and should be reminded to always use a virtual private network (VPN) when working remotely.
  • Insider threats: Employees should be aware of the dangers of insider threats and should report any suspicious behaviour or activities. Employees should also be reminded of the importance of locking their devices when they are left unattended.
Small businesses are targeted in cyber-attacks because they often have weaker security measures compared to larger organisations, making them easier targets. Small businesses may be vulnerable due to:

  • Lack of resources: Small businesses often have limited budgets and manpower, which can make it difficult for them to invest in strong cybersecurity measures.
  • Inadequate security measures: Small businesses may not have the knowledge or resources to implement strong security measures such as firewalls, antivirus software, and data encryption.
  • Lack of awareness: Small business owners and employees may not be aware of the risks associated with cyber-attacks, or they may not understand how to protect themselves.
  • Use of outdated software: Small businesses may use outdated software that is no longer supported, leaving them open to security vulnerabilities.
  • Interconnectedness with larger organisations: Small businesses may be part of larger supply chains, which can make them attractive targets for attackers looking to gain access to larger organisations.

By using an managed service provider to outsource cyber security, small businesses have access to up-to-date cyber security measures, without the need for large investment.
