Introduction from Malgorzata
Along with Matt Ridley and Steph Hill, I formed Ascent Cyber while studying Cyber Security and Networks at Glasgow Caledonian University. Having previously studied Networking at college, this was where we refined our skills and specialised in the areas of Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing and Digital Forensic Analysis.
We realised through speaking to small business owners that although most use the internet for their day-to-day activities, there is a lack of awareness of the risks posed by inadequate cyber security provisioning. Coupled to this is a fear of the unknown and confusion caused by overly technical jargon which is all too often thrown around within the industry.
We want to change that. We want small- and medium-sized business owners in our community and beyond to feel empowered by the technical advances and opportunities available, without fearing them.
Ascent Cyber give small- and medium-sized businesses the knowledge and tools to protect themselves against cyber criminals, particularly where businesses are unsure about where to start.
We a work to government standards and provide Cyber Essentials certification, which provides credibility to your business and reassurance to your customers and allows you to bid for lucrative government contracts. Unlike our competitors, we take you through the entire process, from start to finish.
We back this up with staff awareness training to empower staff to confidently play their part in protecting the business, so that management can get on with running the company.
