27th November 2023
Following the news in the past few days of the cyber attack on CTS, we have outlined some key points on what has happened and critically what you should do if you are concerned about the impact of this incident.
Following the National Cyber Security Centre’s ( NCSC ) latest annual report, we review the outputs and highlight areas both business and security leaders need to be mindful of in their resilience planning.
JMM successfully achieved both their Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials PLUS accreditations at the first attempt. The time taken by Amicis and JMM’s IT Partner, and the trial assessment done ahead of the actual audit, meant further costs of re-test and added time was avoided. This meant accreditation was achieved ahead of key deadlines set as part of the Public Sector commercial contract commitments.
In today's digital age, the term "cybersecurity" has become a buzzword, often associated with fear and uncertainty. Many people are apprehensive about the security of their personal and professional information in the face of cyber threats. While it's crucial to be aware of the potential risks, it's equally important not to succumb to fear. In this article, we will explore why you should not be scared of cybersecurity and instead embrace it as a vital part of our interconnected world and a key enablement pillar for your organisation.
In today's interconnected digital world, businesses face an increasing array of cybersecurity threats, and among the most challenging to combat are insider threats. Insider threats are potential risks posed to an organisation's security by its own employees, contractors, or business partners who have authorised access to the company's systems, networks, and data.

IOT security, and medical devices in particular, have come under intense scrutiny in recent years for the cyber risks that surround them. Given the nature of what they are responsible for, and the severe consequences of breaches to sensitive medical data, operating these devices requires considerable effort to mitigate the associated risks. In this article we examine some of the key risks and preventative actions to take to secure the technology, and those who are reliant on it.
Penetration testing brings value and informs critical business decisions in a wide variety of scenarios. Below, we highlight several instances where utilising this service enables businesses to secure their key technology systems and thereby help fuel business innovation and growth.

At the end of July, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) and Ipsos published a report analysing the UK cyber security labour market. We explore key themes coming out of the report, specifically what a business who lacks the necessary cyber skills, knowledge or capability should consider in order to avoid missed opportunities as well as the operational pitfalls of not having these resources in-house.
As an increasing number of businesses take further steps up their cyber resilience ladder typically due to their growth, they eventually embark upon needing or wanting a penetration test. Below we explore some of the key benefits to organisations of conducting penetration testing “pen tests” regularly.
With L&D organisations holding so much personally identifiable information, they are a highly attractive target for threat actors. Furthermore, for those operating in the funded learning or Apprenticeships space, there is an enormous level of auditing and compliance measures requiring continued maintenance.
As more of our clients move to adopting PTAS for their infrastructure testing due to its cost effective commercials, fast-paced delivery and ability to conduct more regular assessments, we deep dive into how the service works, and the value it is showcasing.
Numerous tools have been introduced into the ethical hacking world over the years to aid a pen tester in their efforts and providing the end client with as much insight into their attack surface and value from the service as possible.
In today’s threat landscape, many hackers will happily target those putting up the least resistance for the easiest gain. With charities, their resources and available budget to spend on cyber defences are often very low, making them a very easy target.
The evolution of this security service has accelerated considerably over the past ten years. In this article, we examine the biggest changes in offerings and the features which have turned the art of security operations into being more proactive in identifying threats and pushing the boundaries around prevention and remediation of threats identified.
