Frequently asked Questions about cyber security
I have installed a security suite from a well known security vendor. Am I safe?
You are safer! Any good security suite will protect you against known (and some unknown) viruses, including trojans and ransom-type attacks. However, it cannot protect against all threats.
DSC always recommends a multi-pronged approach, which includes security software on the desktop, servers, and cloud-based systems; regular security audits or assessments, and any suggested follow-on remediation work; a “fit for purpose” firewall or other security device to protect your network perimeter; and perhaps most important of all, regular security awareness training for your users to assist them in being able to detect ever more frequent and increasingly sophisticated phishing and other attacks.
How do I know if I have been subjected to a data breach?
DSC offers a service whereby we can search and see whether any of your domains or emails have been subject to a data breach, by way of compromised passwords or visited websites. Additionally, we offer a full security audit, or a more tailed set of services such as penetration testing or data retention and compliance advisory options if you just want to assure yourself you are “safe” in one or two areas.
My firewall maintenance/warranty is due for renewal, and seems expensive. Should I renew?
Well, the answer is that you should definitely do something, but it may not just be a renewal. If the hardware is getting a little old, you may find there are more cost effective solutions, with better features, that just simply renewing. Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to discuss options.
I want to make sure I am secure. What should I do?
In the first instance, call us! We have many years of expertise and putting together security solutions to minimise your risk, within your available budget.

One of the problems DSC have found with traditional assessment models is that they are rarely tailored to suit the needs of your business.
DSC offer a number of vulnerability assessment services that can provide your organization with the necessary knowledge and risk profile awareness to understand and react to threats to your systems or people.
Most importantly DSC specialise in making this information more valuable to your business than a check box on an insurance form or by helping you understand the impact of what is identified and what your options are
Whether you need a more traditional scan and report approach, have recently implemented a new IT system, or perhaps migrated application to the cloud, DSC’s approach to vulnerability assessment can check how secure you are in the areas that matter most to your business.
If the worst has already happened, and you have been breached, the worst thing for your business to do is hope that it will go away. Left ignored and without appropriate response, actors and other malicious threats can live within systems unnoticed syphoning data indefinitely or can use your environment to carry out other malicious acts.
However, very few businesses know what to do when they have been compromised and even fewer have pro-active strategies in place to define what to do. Whether it be what action to take , verification of the suspected incident or navigating your insurers cyber incident response process DSC can help to give you the information important to your business in a way you can understand it.
So let DSC assist you with both securing your environment from the suspected breach and helping put in place an immediate action plan to attempt to limit the damage and help you navigate your business
