Cyber Security Vigilance, Defence and Education

Safeguarding from cyber threats

Cyber attacks are a real threat to businesses of all sizes. Without an in-house IT team, it’s hard to know if you’re truly protected. You’ve probably heard about ransomware and data breaches, but understanding how to defend against them isn’t straightforward.

Many business owners worry their employees might unknowingly open the door to hackers. The potential cost of a breach is another major concern. These aren’t just hypothetical risks. Small and medium UK businesses face these challenges every day. That’s where we come in.

Revolutionising IT Infrastructure for Growth

EnviroShield Services, a leading nationwide provider of thermal insulation and heat tracing for commercial businesses, faced significant IT challenges. With a diverse team comprising office admin staff and 30-40 field-based engineers and installers, their IT infrastructure was a patchwork of mismatched hardware and software, lacking advanced cybersecurity measures. This inefficiency hindered their project management capabilities and compliance adherence, impacting their ability to handle an increasing workload effectively.

Frequently asked questions

We answer common cyber security questions and concerns

Small businesses are often targeted because they typically have fewer resources for security. Without proper protection, your business could be quite vulnerable.

At minimum, you should have strong firewalls, up-to-date antivirus software, regular data backups, and employee training on security best practices.


Antivirus software detects and removes malicious programs. A firewall acts as a barrier, monitoring and controlling incoming and outgoing network traffic.

Costs vary based on your needs, but basic protection can start from a few hundred pounds per month. We offer tailored packages to fit different budgets.

Ransomware is malicious software that locks your files and demands payment for their release. Protection includes regular backups, software updates, and staff training.

Update passwords every 3-6 months. A strong password is long, uses a mix of characters, and isn’t based on personal information or common words.

Reputable cloud services are generally safe, often providing better security than most small businesses can maintain in-house. We can help you choose and set up secure cloud solutions.


Immediately disconnect affected systems, change all passwords, and contact us or your IT provider. You may need to inform affected parties and relevant authorities.

We offer training programs that teach staff to spot suspicious emails, links, and attachments. Regular simulated phishing tests can also be effective.

Cyber insurance can be valuable, covering costs related to data breaches, business interruption, and legal fees. Coverage varies, so we recommend discussing options with an insurance professional.
