In the UK, 31% of businesses reported being a victim of a cyber-attack at least once a week, this is no less of a nuisance or threat than having your home/business premises physically broken into. Now, if this was your home or business premises we are sure you wouldn't hesitate to protect them and improve their security, right?
A business's website acts as the front door to the online security of a business and can be easily compromised if not properly protected. Website security is extremely important in order to protect all your online activities, sensitive data, and business from cyber-attacks. There are many types of website attacks and whilst it might seem impossible to defend yourself from them, there are some basic things you can do to improve the security of your website. Check out our short video giving guidance on how you can help to protect your website:
How do I know if my website is secure? To help you do just this, we have launched our Web Application Vulnerability Assessment service. This service assesses your website and web services for weaknesses. Based on best practice industry standards we will assess the top 10 security risks to websites and attempt to identity vulnerabilities. This service also benefits from regional Police and National Cyber Security Centre intelligence to capture the very latest known threats and techniques used by cyber criminals.
The service reporting will describe in plain language, what each weakness means to your business and the risks associated with each. Service reporting will include plans and guidance on how to fix those weaknesses. In addition, we are able to recommend our IASME Trusted Partners network to provide additional services such as a full penetration test. Our Trusted Partners have been subject to due diligence checks by the accreditation body appointed by the National Cyber Security Centre, the UK’s National Technical Authority who are apart of GCHQ. They are also certification bodies for Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus schemes which assure you have considered the most common cyber technical controls.
