Cyber Essentials

Security and privacy are of absolute paramount importance, not just at a personal level, but more so than ever at a business level. Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes. The vast majority are basic in nature, often carried out by relatively unskilled individuals, or easily downloadable automated programs. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it it’s unlocked. At LMS Group we’re all about security, and ultimately, it’s our job to protect our clients from these attacks.

What is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is an accreditation backed by the Government that helps you to guard against the most common threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security.

There are just five technical controls that you need to put in place:


Point of entry
to your network

Your firewall


Configuration of your devices

This includes routers, servers and computers



  Restrict access of your employees, contractors and customers to only the information they need to see


Patch Management

Keeping your systems up to date is vital when protecting them from malicious software and potential cyber attacks


Malware protection

Make sure that you have the right software or hardware installed to protect your machine from attacks from malware and viruses
