Cyber Security Managed & Information Protection Service
Every business is experiencing the challenge to deliver goods and services in the fastest possible way, for the most affordable price, within the highest quality standards. To cope with this challenge, we use the information to understand market needs, customer requirements and product features. We create digital twins of our manufacturing plants modelling the best way to operate and following the ideas of Industry 4.0. We use more and more IoT – gadgets, equipment and manufacturing lines connected to the Internet. We use bots and systems to serve customers, speed-up production and automate delivery. We even use information systems to plan our day. We live in a world of information-driven economy. Digital reality gives all of us a very clear competitive advantage but by its nature creates many risks which need careful management as well.
The Stats – Cyber Security Breaches
On average, every 14 seconds a company is being attacked by hackers. Information is encrypted and made useless unless decrypted by special software provided by hackers after the ransom is paid. One cannot use e-mail, do not know what to do next as day plan is encrypted as well, production stops, marketing stops and sales operations stop.
Examples of Cyber Security Breaches
|Industry / Company/ Location||Values and Damage scale||Period of attack|
|Public-sector organizations /Port of San Diego/ US 2018||$30 million Direct costs – plus any Ransoms paid|
$8 billion economic impact on the San Diego region
|Airline /Cathay Pacific 2018||Has been hacked and some 9.4 million customers may have had their most personal data stolen||Over 6 months|
|Tesco Bank 2018||£2.5m to reimburse the 20,000|
£16.4 fine for data breach
|Unknown / not disclosed|
The Scale of Cyber Breaches
Only in 2015 cyber-criminals caused more than £3 Trillion in losses worldwide – something close to the UK’s GDP in 2018. By 2021 it is expected that those losses will reach £6 Trillion – something UK and Germany mutually produce (source: Cybersecurity Ventures Official Annual Cybercrime Report).
Cyber Threat Reality – A Preventative strategy is the best approach
It is no longer a question whether your business will be attacked or not; it is more a question of what you will do and how then and what can be done to minimize negative outcomes.
Practice shows that preventing cyber-attacks is more than 10 times less expensive than dealing with the consequences of an attack. You might recognize that the same approach in health care or finances is true too.

Why Choosing a Managed Service?
Managing Cyber security risks can be expensive and often difficult to achieve due to the skills and resources needed to implement and maintain and retain control of the IT environments which become Cyber-attack targets.
Managed cyber security is expensive and requires a mature team of specialists familiar with and maintaining knowledge in the techniques used to gain access to networks and Ransom attacks.
Our managed service is offered standalone or as the natural next stage following security and requirements audit.
How our Managed Cyber Security Service Works?
Our managed service is typically deployed over 3 to 6 months (depending on the scale and number of locations). We create a project plan and assign the team. We complete an audit which will identify items to be verified (all owned and BYOD equipment are verified separately) on the network, and we then install and roll out on monitoring and management framework. Vulnerabilities and issues identified from the audit process will be escalated immediately based on the risk levels. Once the Cyber Security managed service is implemented, your organization is protected with an optimal approach to the risks and affects from Cyber-attacks.
We agree reporting, management and escalations’ levels and complete monthly status briefings. We are available 24/7, and your organization is protected by an insurance backed Cyber Security service.
Any onsite visits are scheduled within the project implementation plan, and post-implementation onsite visits are arranged as required.

With our Managed Cyber Security service backed by your choice of insurance levels, you have the ability to turn unknown Cyber Security risks and effects into a fixed cost to risk management. This means that in the event you suffer Cyber Security issues, you have a guaranteed, financially back, technical solution to fight your cause and fund the cost required up to the limits you select from £250,000 to £1m or higher as required.
