Regola Digital Consulting

Your Security is Our Remit

Regola’s mission is to support SMEs wishing to improve their cyber security, no matter where their starting point may be.

We are highly experienced in working with SMEs, and can assist you in preparing for and achieving a cyber security certification.

We are a Cyber Essentials certified company and IASME Certification Body.

Cyber Essentials is the base level, and this offers a number of protections. It will be very useful to you as evidence that your business takes the matter of securing its systems seriously and uses current industry best practice, and statistics show that it provides protection against 80% of attacks.

Why is this important now?

Cybercrime continues to escalate. A survey by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) revealed that 32% of businesses and 24% of charities overall recall a breach or attack within the last 12 months. This is much higher for medium businesses (59%), and large businesses (69%).

This should have caused SMEs to take further defensive action. Some did, but by no means all and 7 out of 10 organisations that experience a cyber-attack are no longer trading a year later.

So what can you do?  Why not go for Cyber Essentials?  Don’t know where to start?  Regola can help!

Haven't we done enough?

Businesses that have achieved the Cyber Essentials certification are justifiably proud of their achievement. They display the logo on their website and often in their physical premises.

In order to continue to do so, however, businesses need to renew their certification. A year is a long time in cyber security, and new threats are emerging all the time. See it like an MoT, helping to keep your business safe.

The reasons for having certification in the first place are well accepted. Digital security is a process; systems need to be alert to potential new dangers. Cyber Essentials will continue to evolve as the threats evolve. It is your safeguard.

We can't afford it this year!

The last couple of years have been tough for businesses, in financial terms. However, to save on overheads, some businesses may be thinking about delaying renewal of Cyber Essentials until next year. They may well be lucky. They may get to next year without a data breach. They may then come to a risky conclusion... we don't need it!

However, as soon as a business makes such a decision, the funding associated with keeping systems secure may start slipping away. If there is no longer a good policy reason to do all these worthy things, the danger is that the business will stop doing them. Are they pushing their luck?

Sooner or later any business will get hacked. With no insurance, probably not much sympathy from the ICO, they will probably face a sizeable bill to sort it all out.

The average cost of a data breach to a medium sized SME is currently just under £5000 (Government figures). Better not take the risk?
