    What we do

    Identifying and mitigating cyber security risks

    Ensuring that your organisation is protected from both internal and external risks is critical to ensuring the safeguarding of your infrastructure, data, operational efficiency and most importantly, your reputation. With continued changes to data legislation and an increased appreciation from users as to the value their personal data holds, coupled with a desire for privacy, it has never been more important to have a clearly defined security strategy, approach and policy. Working with leading vendors and independent security specialists, we provide a framework and range of services to help you understand the complexities of the landscape, your exposure and help prioritise initiatives that ensure risk is minimised – both now and in the future. We start with consultative engagement, and agree on the best approach to evaluate your current security environment, and highlight any immediate threats or weaknesses in compliance.

    Uniting authorities across the public sector

    We work closely with a number of authorities across the public sector in order to create a unified approach. We closely engage with local authorities, central government, and blue light services to deploy all-encompassing IT solutions that allows public sector organisations to work more closely together.

    Customer Success

    Providing secure data storage to support essential services to the public

    "The scalability of the Storage systems means we don’t have to worry about running out of capacity. The team and I can focus on strategic concerns to protect Conwy’s data and guarantee that public services are available for the future." Will Valintine, Principal Technical Support Analyst, Conwy County Borough Council

    The Circular Economy Approach
