As part of Turrem Data Group we provide cost-effective and reliable cyber security solutions to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across Sussex and the Home Counties.
Many SMBs are finding it a challenge to understand the latest data compliance needs with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and are facing further challenges regarding the protection they should have in place – many think that if they have antivirus protection this is sufficient.
In today’s cyber world it is no longer the case of ‘if’ a breach will happen, but ‘when’ it will happen! Even small, one-man bands are seen as perfect targets for obtaining private information by cybercriminals.
It is also a fallacy that businesses need to spend large amounts of money to ensure they are protected. In fact, in most cases, protection can be as simple as just having a managed antivirus and managed patching solution in place. This will cost you around £15 or less per month per device and yet provides you with sufficient protection.
A “managed service” such as the one that TDG Cyber Security offers has significant advantage over a “non-managed” one. With a managed service there is a cyber expert looking at any potential issues and working with the client to ensure protected devices remain healthy and secure.
