Like a lot of business people, you may worry about cyber security, but there are some simple but effective steps you can take to improve your business’s cyber security.


From the 25th May, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect, and it’s important that your business is prepared. Here are a few hints and tips on how to prepare your business:


One of the big themes that will dominate the digital world in 2018 will be the need to improve security against cyber attacks, according to North East specialists Bowe Digital.


October is European Cyber Security Month, a timely reminder that all business people need to be vigilant in this digital age.

The month is an EU awareness campaign that promotes cyber security and highlights simple steps that can be taken to protect data. Bowe Digital wholeheartedly support the initiative because we promote crucial security messages with our clients on a daily basis.

We remind clients to do things to protect themselves like not connecting to untrusted networks, not clicking on links in emails from people you do not know and ensuring that passwords cannot easily be guessed.

Suddenly, everyone is talking about data protection, partly because of increased awareness about cyber safety following recent high profile attacks and partly because of GDPR.


Britain’s top firms need to do more to protect themselves from online threats, according to new Government research.

The survey of the UK’s biggest 350 companies found that more than two thirds of boards had not received training to deal with a cyber incident (68 per cent) despite more than half saying cyber threats were a top risk to their business (54 per cent).

One in ten FTSE 350 companies said they operate without a response plan for a cyber incident and less than a third of boards receive comprehensive cyber risk information (31 per cent).

Minister for Digital Matt Hancock said: “These new reports show we have a long way to go until all our organisations are adopting best practice.”

We wholeheartedly agree. The statistics are alarming, to say the least, which is why we place cyber security at the heart of what we do.

This is not something that companies can ignore in the hope that it will go away. It won’t and the damage which can be caused by a security breach can be catastrophic to a business of any size.

However, by adopting a few simple precautions businesses can do so much to protect themselves. Call us on 0191 214 1750 or email  to find out how we can help keep you secure.
