All you need to protect your business from basic cyber attacks

We designed CyberWyse for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) who know they need to take action to improve their cyber security –  but are just not sure what to do.

CyberWyse combines certification for Cyber Essentials (CE) PLUS and the Information Assurance for Small Medium Enterprise (IASME) Governance Standard with cyber security insurance. All delivered with full support from cyber security specialists, Ascentor.

Why you should consider CyberWyse

If you are an SME or smaller business, there is near enough a 1 in 2 chance that your business will be subject to a cyber attack. So, if you’ve been hacked, are worried about being hacked, or you need to demonstrate to your client base that you are taking cyber security seriously, CyberWyse is for you.

We take away the headache of not having enough time, skill or resource and help you through a quick and effective approach to reducing your organisation’s exposure to the cyber risk.

Perhaps more importantly, the ongoing governance will be proportionate to your size of business, thereby reducing the operational workload on internal staff.

The Ascentor CyberWyse process

We take you through three steps to achieve your new, certified and insured cyber security position.

First, we need to Identify Gaps, which involves:

A scoping call, to discuss and confirm:

  • The work package, the process and the logistics
  • The stakeholders to be interviewed
  • Whether you have any existing security documents (copies required for review)

A on-site visit to:

  • Review your current security approach (interviews as agreed at the scoping call)
  • Carry out a high-level network review and a vulnerability scan of your system.

Off-site tests and checks back at Ascentor’s Gloucester office to:

  • Review your security approach against the IASME standard
  • Carry out remote scans and email tests
  • Produce a report with a roadmap of activities 

Once we have identified the gaps, we will Fill Gaps during two days of consultancy support. This time is flexible and tailored to help you implement the roadmap in preparation for the audits.

Finally, we Audit and Certify. When you are ready for the audit, we will check your self-assessed IASME submission and arrange for the onsite CE PLUS audit. Your certificates will follow a successful audit.
