You have probably heard a lot about ‘Digital Transformation’ – the adoption of digital technology within an organisation or business to improve business efficiency, value, and innovation. These potential benefits for your business speak for themselves, but it is vital that when you choose to adopt these new systems that it is done safely, with due consideration of the security and compliance needs that must be met to protect you, your team, and your customers/stakeholders.

Unless your core operation is as an IT specialist, your business will probably find it a significant challenge to keep a constant eye on the state of your technology systems, particularly on maintaining the right levels of security and ensuring your compliance regime is free of potentially damaging weaknesses and risks (both reputational and financial).

Most certainly you are not alone. According to a recent survey we commissioned from leading analyst Keypoint Intelligence, 48% of the 550 SMBs surveyed across the UK and Mainland Europe regarding their current major Digital & IT challenges cited security and data protection as their primary challenge. Worryingly, 67% of respondents reported that their company has experienced a malware incident in the last two years.

If your team operates remotely as part of a hybrid working model (which has become particularly popular since the pandemic) then it is understandable that your concerns may well be further amplified. With many workers using a combination of business/personal devices and a domestic internet connection (often with only basic of security in place) it is important that you have peace of mind that vital data is fully protected, and potential issues fully mitigated.

Don’t let IT or data risks halt your business

​Over 90% of the IT environments we tested last year had serious IT and data vulnerabilities and risks. Despite IT and data being the backbone and lifeblood of almost every business today, UK businesses are simply too exposed to IT failure and data risks.
