Cyber security specialist CySure Ltd has partnered with Rubitek as a digital consulting re-seller. Rubitek has added CySure’s Virtual Online Security Officer (VOSO) to its digital consulting offering to support businesses worldwide with their cyber security.
Sammy Williams, Digital Architect at and Director of Rubitek, said: “We are delighted to introduce CySure’s VOSO to our product suite. Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly prominent in the world of business, so to be able to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) prevent attacks is a really exciting opportunity for us. VOSO fits in nicely with our established digital consulting products, and we’re all looking forward to supporting businesses all over the world, one click at a time.”
SMEs in the UK are just as much at risk from data breaches as large organisations. According to the Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2018, 42% of small businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the last 12 months. Suffice to say, this is a significant problem, and one that’s only set to increase as online criminals continue to discover new ways to access valuable and personal information stored by businesses.
Sammy continued: “We chose to partner with CySure because VOSO incorporates the high security standards, around-the-clock monitoring and action-lead reports we offer our customers. CySure shares our values and vision of helping SMEs stay cyber-safe and, like us, no challenge is too complex, and no goal is too grand for them. Together, our aim is to shield as many SMEs from internet-based attacks as we can.”
VOSO incorporates both US NIST and UK Cyber Essentials security standards to guide enterprises through the certification process, ensuring the right steps are taken to keep data secure and organisations compliant.
When it comes to the world of GDPR, CySure maps the security component of the regulations into VOSO and breaks them down into digestible, easy-to-follow actions. This enables businesses to clearly navigate their way through a staged compliance approach and work towards Cyber Essentials (CE). Many companies see CE certification as a commercial differentiator and evidence of their commitment to cyber security.
Joe Collinwood, Chief Executive Officer of CySure, concluded: “Cyber security has become a fundamental component of business operations but, unfortunately, some SMEs are lagging behind.
“It’s vital that SMEs safeguard their business by investing in security policies, procedures and products. CySure is partnering with Rubitek because its market-leading consulting, design and solution architecture services complement VOSO, and we share the same objective to support SMEs in implementing strong, cyber security hygiene practices so they can thrive in today’s digital economy.”
