The Basics.

We know how to keep things safe

Naturally, security is one of our biggest concerns.
We try to protect data by following the advice we provide to others. All of our business data and client data is backed up and recoverable – but the general idea around here is to avoid the issues that could cause concern in the first place.


We Follow Industry Guidelines and the law

We care about data – thats why, where possible we try to follow industry guidelines and recommendations about data storage and collection.
We respect the changes pertaining to the GDPR and handle all of our data accordingly.

We Practice Honesty

We will never sell your data or try to target services based on your browsing history, because we don’t feel this is the right thing for information security companies to do.


We sometimes track emails

Like over 50% of businesses we track the read receipt of an email, this isn’t to investigate you at all. Quite often it is so we can check receipt of an important email.

The problem is well known, the solution can be simple.

It is an abitious plan, but here is what needs to happen.

What We Need To Do

  • 01 Educate People

    An attacker will try to exploit the gaps in your knowledge. By learning about cybercrime we can foster a genuine awareness that can go a long way to education and protecting us all from the dangers.

  • 02 Help Businesses

    Large corporations are starting to acknowledge the risk a social engineering attack can pose. We can help demonstrate these threats in a new and challenging way and help you work towards improvement and defence.

  • 03 Partner With Allies

    We need help, effectively we are trying to change the habits of a nation. Law enforcement, businesses, groups and government bodies all have to work together to bring this change. We partner with organisations that share our dream – such as North Yorkshire Police and London Digital Security Centre.

  • 04 Cause A Fuss

    Although not very British, sometimes we need to complain. Companies care about what their customers value. We need to show them the true value of our data by avoiding companies that fail to protect us.
