Secure I.T. Support Cancer Research

Once again our intrepid women from Secure IT Environments take to the field for a very worthy cause. On 1st July 2018, Caroline, Wendy and Jo-Anne run in the Cancer Research Race for Life.

Having now competed in this race for the last 9 years they have tallied up quite some miles and raised much-needed funds that go towards research that we hope one day will find a cure to all Cancer.

In the meantime, good luck on Sunday ladies we are all very proud of you.

If you would like to support the Secure IT Environments Race for Life team, please go to our Cancer Research page to donate – it is secure and all funds will go towards this very worthy cause.

Bramble Hub summer party at House of Commons

In June Secure IT Environments attended Bramble Hub’s networking event at the House of Commons in London. Secure IT Environments were represented by Chris Wellfair and Clare Page who spent the afternoon discussing industry matters with fellow attendees from across the sector.

With over 90 companies in attendance, there was no shortage of people to speak to and old friends to catch up with.

So whether you were after information on recording and listening devices, how best to dispose of sensitive computer files or building containerised (ModCel) data rooms there was a company there who could help.

With the sunshine out it allowed the guests to network on the terrace of this historic building, whilst taking in the glorious panorama of the River Thames. You could almost forgive yourself for thinking you were at work.

Thank you, Roland Cunningham, from Bramble Hub for inviting Secure IT Environments to such a fabulous event.

We look forward to next year.

 

 

 

Business cybercrime up 63%, UK stats show

Despite an overall decrease in fraud and computer misuse in 2017, the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) reports show that incidents involving computer misuse and malware against business are way up.

This rise in business-related computer misuse is largely accounted for by a 145% rise in computer malware and DDoS attacks the past year to 8,292 offenses.

More specifically, this is thought to be due to a rise in levels of malware, mainly ransomware and Trojans, including several high-profile attacks and security breaches on national institutions, including the WannaCry attacks in May 2017.

This is the reason why Secure I.T. Environments has invested time and effort into obtaining the Cyber Essentials Certificate.

The scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfill two functions. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet-based threats, within the context of the 10 Steps to Cyber Security. And through the Assurance Framework, it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.

Cyber Essentials offers a sound foundation of basic hygiene measures that all types of organisations can implement Click here to find out more about the Cyber Essentials Scheme
