The latest research from the ONS Cyber Security Beaches Survey 2018 suggests that 42% of micro and small businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the last 12 months. Approximately 17% of those breached took a day or more to recover, losing an average of $1500.
Among the 25% of business that didn’t have any cyber security measures in place, as much as 24% thought their business was too small or insignificant to be targeted. Cybercrime doesn’t sleep, zero-day threats can attack at any time and, without the correct security processes in place, your customers and patient’s data could be vulnerable.
It’s vital that your data is protected from potentially devastating financial and reputational damage with smart and sophisticated cyber security solutions that can block threats both at the endpoint and on the web.

A multi-layered security approach is the best way to combat an increasing threat landscape. Cyber Security solutions can only predict patterns as far as their global intelligence reaches, so it’s best practise to combine those solutions with a business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) implementation.
For your business, the financial costs and remediation following a breach can cause significant damage to their brand, leading to detrimental consequences. But with a solid BCDR solution, data breaches that occur can be rectified with little downtime.
Many small/medium businesses still rely on backing up their data on tapes and storing them offsite. For years, this proved as an effective, cheap and reliable route for SMBs, But times have changed, the cloud has evolved and restoring tapes to an offsite server is now significantly slower and can involve larger periods of downtime for your business, compared to cloud-to-cloud backup.
Before Choosing a DR solution for your business, ensure it meets the following criteria:
1. Automatic backup of critical systems and data
2. Quick disaster recovery from an easy to use solution
3. Frequent point-in-time backups
4. A failover datacentre should the primary location fall
We are Microsoft Cloud Service Provider and Acronis partner offering a solid solution to your data backups and recovery.

The benefit of using our site recovery solution:
Spend less time on maintenance: No need for a secondary datacentre, you can replicate on-premises VMs and physical servers to the Cloud without hassle.
Safely test disaster recovery on applications and workloads between.

Secure Cutomer Data and meet compliance regulations :
As a Microsoft partner we offer products and services that will ensure the security and protection of customer data first. Microsoft holds 47+ security and compliance certifications more than any other cloud provider. The company is committed to securing customer data with robust solutions and ensuring data privacy is always held in the highest regard.
When it comes to governance and compliance, our duty is to ensure where your data is stored and who has access to it and when. Some businesses believe that if they host their data with Microsoft Azure, it’s no longer theirs and is mixed with other companies on the same network. This is simply not true. Microsoft ensure that your data remains your own, in a private space that you rent each month on a multi-tenant environment. Think of it as an apartment complex with a landlord, they are liable to protect and secure the area as best as they can.
How Microsoft handles customer data :
1. Geographic storage locations : For data litigation purposes most Azure deployments for your data will want to be stored in Morocco or closed location such as France. Microsoft will not transfer data outside the geo specified, though they will transfer data between regions, particularly if an outage should occur.
2. Access to customer data : Access to any customer data via Microsoft personnel is restricted and is only accessed when necessary to support queries around Azure; e.g. troubleshooting etc. Any access is controlled, logged and revoked when it’s no longer required. Microsoft follows stringent processes which are verified by accredited auditors.
3. Customer data is protected in the EU : Microsoft is Safe Harbour certified under the U.S Department of Commerce, allowing for the legal transfer of EU personal data outside of the EU Geo, which is submitted to Microsoft for processing, this means that data can be transferred outside of the designated Geo but will only be processed in line with the EU Data Protection Act and GDPR.
4. Law enforcement requests :Microsoft will not disclose customer data to a third party – including law enforcement or government entities -except when directed by the customer or if required by law to do so from a court order or warrant. If data is requested, Microsoft will direct the third party request back to the customer with basic contact information.
A Recent rise in social engineering attacks fooled even the most skilled tech users, with many failing to realise that their CEO doesn’t need Google Play vouchers, or that urgent bank transfer to secure a deal isn’t real.
These emails -known as business email compromise (BEC) attacks – use legitimate credentials that have either been leaked in previous breaches or are available in the public domain. Targeting specific individuals, users can be lulled into a false sense of security and will happily validate information to cybercriminals when they believe they are someone else that they know and trust.
In 2019, Giacom predicts that social engineering emails will get more personal, weaponised and sophisticated. Ensuring you have a powerful email security solution integrated with Office 365 will not only help block attacks before they reach their mailbox, it can also warn of potential malicious links or attachments.
