(UK Government, Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2020)
Cyber security is one of the most vital elements of IT but is perhaps the most misunderstood. Our engineers have years of experience in implementing multi-layered cyber security solutions. These state of the art security solutions provide your business with many levels of protection from malicious internet attacks, giving you peace of mind.
Layered Security Strategy
Every year, cyber threats become more sophisticated with criminals developing new strands of malware at a pace at which conventional security systems cannot match.
Multiple security solutions are required to deal with the variety of attacks and various entry points of an IT system. There is no “catch-all” solution to cyber security, rather a professional and considered approach, putting in place various products & services all with the aim of preventing a breach.
ECS use a range of perimeter and client protection to provide multiple layers of security for your essential systems, helping to protect your vital company information from malicious attacks. When this is teamed with our 24/7 monitor and years of experience, you can be safe in the knowledge that if disaster strikes we will keep downtime to a minimum.
Our ApproachWe approach cyber security in a multi-faceted way, with prevention being the clear focus at all times. Our work is lead by the belief that organisations can reduce their chances of becoming a victim of cyber-crime by utilising monitoring & industry-leading security solutions.
We tackle cyber security using the following approach:
We analyse both a company’s information technology assets and the business solutions used. We identify possible areas of weakness and provide solutions to improve security across the organisation.
Solutions are put into place which makes up the pieces of a layered security strategy, such as Unified Threat Management, Managed Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam.
With our managed monitoring service, we use 24/7 monitoring services to identify threats at the earliest possible time.
Early detection of threats leads to a reduction in attack fallout.
Resolve & Restore
Our monitoring services will notify us of an attack, allowing us to neutralise the threat quickly with limited damage. We ensure the company is returned to an operational state by utilising customised backups.
The event is analysed and an incident report is created. This report includes recommendations to ensure the event is not repeated.
GDPR and Data Protection Act Compliance
In 2019, UK businesses were fined over £280 million by the ICO for leaving their customers’ data at risk – and this number is likely to grow in 2020.
The Data Protection Act (2018) is the UK’s implementation of GDPR that provides strict rules on how a customer’s personal data can be used and stored.
ECS offer a full IT security audit which will leave you with a full detailed report explaining where improvement is required to ensure you meet the standards laid out by the Data Protection Act (2018). Not only does this help you to ensure your customers’ data is safe but can also avoid fines of up to 4% of annual turnover.
