Digital trust and cyber security

The difference we make

We help protect your organisation's most important assets against cyber threats. We're used to working in the most challenging environments, so you can be confident we're on top of the most serious threats.

We set the standard for best practice cyber security – we have created national and industry-wide best practice that is now widely used across private and public sector organisations.


PA opinion

  • Into the unknown – determining the cost of GDPRThe EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) was ratified by Brussels nearly a year ago. However, FS organisations are only just waking up to the reality of its impacts and how much it's going to cost. 17/03/2017

  • What's next for the National Cyber Security Centre?The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) brings together and replaces the information security arm of GCHQ, the Centre for Cyber Assessment, Computer Emergency Response Team UK and the cyber-related responsibilities of the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure. But with over 180 cyber attacks classed by the NCSC as category two or three during the last three months, there's no time to lose. Three of our experts weigh in on what the NCSC should do next. 22/02/2017
  • How can the government protect the UK from cyberattacks?A critical report by the Public Accounts Committee states that it's taken government too long to consolidate and coordinate the 'alphabet soup' of agencies that are meant to be protecting Britain online. The PAC goes on to provide six recommendations that will increase the UK's security. But do they really hold the answer? Mark Barmby, PA defence and security expert, tackles the three he thinks are the most important. 09/02/2017
  • EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a game-changer. The penalties for a breach have the potential to move from hundreds of thousands to millions of pounds, dollars or euros. Requirements around unambiguous consent and the right to erasure mean organisations fundamentally need to re-think how they manage and retain data. And compliance is inevitable for any organisation that handles EU citizen data. 24/10/2016

What we can do for you

From penetration testing to long-term cultural change and everything in between, our work gives you confidence that your assets are properly protected. 

Here's what we can do:

  • help you understand the real cyber security risks facing your organisation and establish robust and pragmatic governance, and the associated management systems, to address those risks
  • develop security solutions that are right for your organisation – from high-level cyber security strategy down to security solutions and controls for managing identity and access
  • test your technical solutions to find out how resilient they are. If there are vulnerabilities, our team of technical security specialists, 7Safe, will find them
  • respond quickly to a cyber incident to secure your systems, then find the root cause so we can fix it and stop the same thing happening again
  • help you build security into your organisation’s DNA, maximising protection in a way that just increasing monitoring and controls doesn't. This includes running cyber 'war games' to find our how ready your business is to respond
  • provide training and professional development for your security professionals. Our specialist team, 7Safe, are leaders in the market
  • get you ready for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ensure you avoid the high penalties (4% of global revenues) for non-compliance.
  • understand and address cyber security risk to industrial control systems.
