Your first 3 steps
Unsure where to start with cyber security?
Follow our 3-step plan to get the biggest improvements in the shortest possible time.
Step 1: Simple Technical Controls
There are 5 simple technical controls which eliminate the vast majority of everyday threats from the internet.
If you implement these controls effectively, you can gain the government-backed certification “Cyber Essentials” and use the associated logo on your website and in other marketing materials.
This certification is becoming more and more common, is mandated for many local- and central-government contracts, and is now used as a deciding factor in many private-sector procurements.
Step 2: Staff Training
Training your users can turn them from a huge risk into a “human firewall” trained to recognize dangerous content and avoid expensive and disruptive security breaches.

Step 3: Get Systematic
This will mean that security is designed into your processes and your staff will understand their responsibilities. This is a key data-protection requirement from the ICO under GDPR.
We recommend that you work towards IASME Governance, a security certification specifically designed for SMEs by IASME, the UK Government’s Assured Service Provider for Cyber Essentials.
