Cyber-crime in the UK is on the rise. And the readiness of most firms to meet these challenges leave much to be desired for many local and regional businesses. In the UK alone, the Cabinet Office has estimated the cost of cyber-crimes on the economy at £27bn. At least an estimated £9.2bn of that is related to just the theft of IP from UK businesses.

It’s strange to be writing a blog; as a Security focused company so much of what we do is highly confidential that one gets accustomed to not talking about what we do.

It’s an exciting time for us, opening up to a new market and bringing our somewhat unique view of the world to bear.
