IT Security Support Hertfordshire
Don’t worry, don’t panic, and don’t be fooled into thinking you need to spend a fortune on data security.
Data Security and the GDPR rules are there to protect you, me and everyone from hackers, fraudsters, spammers and other people who will misuse your data.
All you need to know is whether your business is secure and we can help you.
We will provide you with a no obligation, no cost, security audit. We will use the GDPR guidelines as our baseline and tell you where you need to improve.
We have qualified GDPR consultants! Talk to us about your business. We can put your mind at rest and you will be in safe hands.
Giving you control of your data
Omicron will use our expertise to perform checks on IT infrastructure including servers, PCs and networks alongside penetration testing and the set-up of multi authentication techniques to ensure passwords are secure.
We will help you sort out your cyber security risks including:
Are your computers and laptops encrypted to keep data secure? Laptops have an extra level of risk when it comes to keeping data safe because they are portable and often taken out of the office.
If a company laptop is lost or stolen, ensuring the hard drive is encrypted at least keeps the data secure and minimises the risk of a data leak and accompanying fines. We will help guide you through the process to making your laptops safer by using encryption.
2. AntiVirus and Malware
Viruses and malware are common tools used by cyber criminals to breach your computer systems and gain access to data. Virus and malware threats are ever-present and constantly changing.
We can help you ensure your systems are secure with regular updates, the automatic deployment of patches and by putting the best antivirus and malware prevention and detection processes in place.
3. Network Security
Network security helps protect the integrity of your network, including servers, computers, mobile devices, and wireless systems such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Omicron can help analyse your current network infrastructure and processes and implement layered network security measures, firewalls and more to keep your data secure and away from cyber threats.
4. Cloud Systems
Another often overlooked aspect of cyber security is cloud based systems. People assume that the cloud is safe and the responsibility of the cloud service provider, but that is not the case.
Individual companies have responsibility to ensure the systems they are using are secure. Omicron can help you achieve that aim, as our team of engineers are educated on the constantly evolving risk presented by cyber criminals in the cloud.
Through our cyber security checks, we will make your network and systems inherently more secure against the vulnerabilities of cybercrime.
If you would like to know more about the IT cyber security services we offer and how we can help you meet the GDPR legislation, or how we can continuously monitor your IT systems for potential risks, get in touch with us for a free consultation and custom proposal.
We would recommend looking to gain a Cyber Essentials certification. This is a good first step towards protecting yourself from threats and can mitigate GDPR fines from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Cyber Essentials certification is a government created scheme and it provides evidence that you have carried out basic steps towards protecting your business and your data from internet based cyber-attacks. Cyber Essentials is designed to work for companies of all sizes including single employee businesses to large companies. https://www.cyberessentials.ncsc.gov.uk/
As Omicron are Cyber Essentials Certified ourselves, we are ideally positioned to guide companies through the process to compliance.
