We take data security as seriously as you do.
Ensuring that you meet data protection laws and protect the sensitive data of customers and staff has become an even bigger talking point since the implementation of GDPR.
We take data security seriously.
We have in place the latest technology in terms of firewalls, anti-virus software and password protection. Our failsafe backup system gives you piece of mind that client business-critical data is always protected. Updates are performed regularly to make sure we always have the latest security updates.
We limit every single employee to data access depending on their job and all our computers are password protected to make sure no one else can access key data.
We are HMRC compliant – the software that we use is fully HMRC approved.
Our servers are hosted in a secure UK location where only a few people have access to. This ensures not everybody can access the data.
All client data is stored in Europe’s most secure data centre ‘The Bunker’ as we like to call it.
Physical location of our servers
Our servers are hosted by HDUK systems which are kept in 2 of the most secure places in the world – they are state of the art nuclear bomb-proof bunkers which were designed to protect command and control systems in the event of an attack. Both Data Centres are ISO27001 and PCI DSS compliant

What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government backed certification scheme that helps a business, no matter what its size, to protect itself from the most common types of cyber attacks
Why we wanted the Cyber Essentials Certification?
First off it was peace of mind for us, we wanted to make sure that we had the right security, privacy management and policies in place.
But also for YOU (our clients) this certification hopefully gives the reassurance to our customers and clients that we take IT security seriously and have this independently assessed.
So what was involved in the process?
In simple terms the requirement is to complete a lengthy questionnaire and for this to be assessed by IASME, an independent organisation. On the face of it this sounds pretty straight forward until you really get into it….. so we reached out to the experts.
We were helped through the application process by the team at Get Cyber Certified who are cyber experts, their supported package is ideal for organisations who need a little bit of hand holding
