Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing – Warren Buffet
At Sytec, we have developed straight forward processes that start by defining the risk and securing the data. Then, in parallel we work to improve the awareness of staff and introduce regular monitoring & reporting.
By addressing each project as a series of very manageable tasks, the objective is to tighten and support data security.
In summary, whether you are making a first step or looking to re-assess your situation, we would be pleased to become involved in your cyber-security journey.
Both Information and Technology bring different risks, but rather than worrying about the IT risk, when you choose to work with Sytec we will use experience and expertise to help define your risks, protect your data, improve staff awareness, whilst also monitoring, optimising and responding efficiently to the IT environment’s demands.

A friendly & fast response is as important as technical expertise
Sytec's support is superb, with a consistency that all businesses could aspire to - Dr Matt Clover
During 2017 following several well publicised cyber security attacks which breached many defences, new urgency was created for organisations who suddenly realised that their systems and staff were more vulnerable than they once thought. The threat level continues to increase, and organisations should address the basics before deciding how to deal with any further complexity of securing intellectual property and assuring stakeholders. Using our 4 step process we;
- determine the risk,
- implement safeguards,
- improve awareness,
- monitor & report.
In summary, these steps are a cost effective method to implement and meet the UK NSCS's standard for Cyber Essentials. We are regularly asked to validate and verify how the IT manager is doing at safeguarding & security; we recognise that it is important not to 'rock the boat', and our approach is to simply confirm what measures and protection is already in place, and what more could be added.
