At PGI we understand that the mere mention of cyber security can cause business owners a lot of confusion and worrying visions of having to pay out for highly expensive equipment. That’s why we demystify the whole thing and bring it into a language that anyone can understand.
We know that cyber security doesn’t need to be something to be feared but rather something to be embraced.
Think of cyber security as any other security measure that you currently implement, it’s the same concept! Instead of protecting your physical assets like buildings and cash you’re protecting the invaluable data stored on your computers.
By adopting this stance we aim to increase knowledge of the threats as well as promote a cyber safe culture into every business.
Cybercrime is on the rise, there’s no denying that, but by implementing the services and training provided by PGI you can reduce the threat dramatically. Our cyber specialists are some of the very best and most knowledgeable in the UK and even perhaps the world. In short, they know what they’re talking about.
Mitigating the cyber threat
PGI helps organisations to implement a cyber-aware culture every step of the way. We can assist in attaining certifications from Cyber Essentials through to ISO 27001, and deliver cyber awareness training that will be of great assistance in implementing a cyber aware culture and significantly reducing the risk of attack.
Incident response plans are the first step in mitigating this risk. These plans should consider the current threat intelligence and have a solid understanding of the attackers that threaten organisations.
An incident response plan should outline who is responsible for each area that is likely to be involved in a security breach; what steps they should take in this event; what resources they can call on (including external consultants); and whom they should communicate with. It will list the possible types of attack and how best to identify, contain and eradicate these, and how to recover from them with as little impact on business as possible. Incident classification and severity ratings give a basis for a manageable set of procedures to handle security breaches.
Protective Monitoring services ensure that your organisation has an early warning system in place. Experts keep an eye on your systems and warn of any attempted breaches. The main benefit of this is that it lets you focus on your business operations.
PGI aims to close the skills gap People wanting employment within the sector are looking for practical training; and organisations need employees with the right skills. PGI aims to be a major contributor in the struggle to close the skills gap.
