Cyber Security for SMEs: Providing Security Layers for Prime Clean
Implementation of robust cyber security policies, procedures and systems which have helped Prime Clean gain additional contracts despite the current economic landscape.
Although based in London, Prime Clean staff often work “on-the-move” between client premises across the UK. This usually means that users are communicating on mobile devices, e-mailing and working on documents using Office 365. Having used Office 365 for over five years, the business adopted the cloud-based solution early on and has since benefitted from increased flexibility and easy access to resources in a mobile working environment. However, at the start of this year users began to report an increasing amount of phishing attempts, with various users receiving impersonation e-mails.
User awareness still remains the best line of defence against cyber vulnerabilities, so keeping everyone up-to-date and aware of the ways in which attacks can be performed, along with the security layers that exist within the business, will help to increase vigilance within the workforce.
Prime Clean are now looking to adopt the Cyber Essentials certification, which will only help them to continue to grow their business, with their customers secure in the knowledge of their supplier’s investment into its Cyber Security protection.
