Cybershelter has been established since 2016. We came out of an obvious requirement to provide independent IT security consultancy services, driven by ever increasing internet based threats and the huge growth of social media. The government has also recognised this requirement and the response has been to introduce Cyber Essentials (a baseline security compliance standard), Cyber Essentials Plus (an uplifted version of Cyber Essentials) and as of May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations. This was an update to the now outdated Data Protection Act of 1998. The IASME Governance standard has also been introduced for those requiring not only IT security certification but also a formal recognition of GDPR compliance. All of these standards are backed up by the National Centre for Cyber Security.
We specialise in giving independent advice surrounding IT and Network security, IT Infrastructure and the GDPR. We are a Certifying Body for Cyber Essentials and we are also certified to provide on site IASME governance certification to those requiring the Gold Standard IASME certification. Our clients include Law Firms, Energy companies, Leisure sector companies, Printers, Educators, Manufacturers, Accountants, Service Industries and Media firms. We audit both on site and remotely. Our audits provide checking each individual PC/Laptop/Tablet/Phone, checking the company firewalls and running in depth vulnerability scans across the network, servers and PC's. If you have any kind of vulnerability we will find it.
Ti assist with IASME governance we also provide custom security policies including policies specifically designed around remote workers and social distancing. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak most of our services are currently provided remotely although on-site visits are still being undertaken with approprate distancing measures in place.
