IT Security & GDPR

Affordable cyber expertise and guaranteed certification, tailored for small-to-medium-sized-businesses (SMBs) and smaller organisations.

Cyber Security and GDPR Overview

Cyber crime is on the increase. 65,000 attempts to hack SMBs take place every day in the UK. 88% of UK companies suffer a breach in a 12 month period. And 95% of cyber attacks are focused on companies where human error makes them an easy target… could that be your business?


Can you be sure your cyber security measures are robust and free from error?


Are your systems GDPR compliant, to safeguard your data and your business?


Perhaps you need to certify for Cyber Essentials before supplying or bidding for public sector work?

Our qualified cyber security expert helps you understand the issues and implement the right measures to ensure your system security, resilience and compliance.

Achieving Cyber Essentials Certification

Cyber Essentials is the government-approved certification standard which helps your organisation guard against a range of the most common cyber threats.

As a certified Cyber Essentials assessor, our cyber specialist guarantees you will achieve certification first time.

We manage the entire certification project on your behalf, representing your business to the certifying body, presenting the right information and the right terminology to fit the assessor’s requirements.

Ensuring GDPR Compliance

GDPR is not optional. If you use data – even something as basic as your customer email list or client contact details – then you must comply with GDPR regulations.

As a certified GDPR assessor, our specialist understands all the latest regulations and requirements, guaranteeing your business will be compliant.

We act as your GDPR Project Manager: delivering a Data Audit Report with recommendations; helping you implement the right solutions; creating all the documentation which ensures you can prove your compliance with confidence.

“With an expanding business to handle, I knew that it would benefit from a GDPR compliance review but I was too busy undertake it myself.

He had sufficient information from me to create all the required compliance documents for the business and made a number of recommendations for changes to my business processes.

Peter is familiar with small businesses and I consider that his GDPR and Cyber Security support services, together with his commercial approach would add significant value to business owners”
