      Cyber Security Threats

      Understand the range of threats that organisations commonly encounter:

      Denial of Service Attack

      A DoS or DDoS attacks swamp an organisation’s network servers with such a large amount of traffic that the systems are brought offline.

      Malware

      Malware comes in various shapes and sizes, from spyware to viruses and worms. These can damage systems and steal confidential company data.

      Ransomware

      These types of attack are on the increase. When infected, a system is encrypted and locked and an attacker demands a fee to unlock the data.

      Phishing

      Phishing is one of the most common types of attack. Malicious Links are included in an email tricking users to disclose sensitive credit card details or login credentials.

      Spear-Phishing

      This is a much more targeted form of phishing which targets specific individuals and specific organisations with fraudulent attempts to access confidential information such as bank details or monetary transactions.

      Zero-Day Exploits

      When a vulnerability is announced, software and hardware vendors are quick to release a security patch. However, attackers can often create an exploit before the patch is released.

      Our Cyber Security Consultancy

      Understanding what services your organisation needs can often seem daunting. Fortunately, Akita have a team of IT Security Consultants who advise and support customers on every aspect of their IT systems and processes.

      Each is a specialist in the field, and can provide regular IT security guidance or ad hoc consultancy, such as impartial reviews and IT audits.

      And, since 2018, IT security is a key part of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Non-compliance can result in large fines of up to 4% annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater). We can advise on how to ensure compliance, and improve your data security, with our GDPR audits.

      90%

      Of Data Breaches Casued By Human Error

      Introducing ‘Thinking Space’

      The single most effective way of stopping a cyber attack is taking the time to stop and think. 90% of data breaches in the UK are down to human error. So, whether that’s clicking a link on an email or on a pop-up ad online, always stop and consider if it is genuine and from a legitimate source.

      Likewise, when browsing the web, stop and check if the website is secured by an SSL certificate before inputting data. These simple tips can dramatically reduce your organisation’s risk to cyber attacks.

      Disaster Recovery

      ANTIVIRUS & ANTI-RANSOMWARE

      Akita offers anti-virus software that can filter out threats, malware, viruses and spam before they ever reach your network.

      By scanning emails before they get to your server, we’re able to implement robust security policies. This ensures your organisation is secure and compliant with regulations such as GDPR.

      We’ll use the right solutions for your needs: Avast for day-to-day business protection, or the more advanced Sophos Intercept X to help prevent ransom and encryption attacks. We also offer granular control of your data integrity to ensure that you always know where it is and who is accessing it.
